The Elaziğ region in SE Turkey comprises, in descending order, the Palaeozoic– Mesozoic Malatya–Keban platform, an ensimatic island arc unit (i.e. Elaziğ magmatic rocks–Yüksekova complex), and ophiolitic rocks (i.e. Kömürhan) of Late Cretaceous age. All of these were intruded by the Baskil granitic rocks. These tectonomagmatic-stratigraphic assemblages were emplaced over the Middle Eocene volcano-sedimentary Maden complex to the south during the evolution of the SE Anatolian orogen. The Kömürhan ophiolite exhibits an intact ophiolite pseudostratigraphy. The base of this has been metamorphosed to amphibolite facies during intraoceanic subduction–thrusting. The amphibolitic rocks were intruded by synkinematic granitic rocks (Baskil magmatic...
