Abstract

Concludes that the chromite deposits of the Guleman district in east Turkey are the product of basic and ultrabasic magmatism associated with the Variscan or possibly an earlier orogenic cycle, on which the effects of Alpine tectonic activity have been superimposed. Two types of ore bodies were developed as a result of the Alpine deformation, one from chromite seams in competent peridotite, the other from chromite segregations in incompetent serpentinite subjected to overthrusting.
