Heavy and Precious Metal Exploration using with Geophysical Methods in The Ophiolitic Rocks Exposed Hatıp-Çayırbağı (Meram-Konya) Region



In this study, ore deposit investigations were realized using with the geological, geophysical and
geochemical methods on the ophiolitic rocks exposed in Hatip-Çayırbağı (Meram-Konya) regions.
In the Hatip-Çayırbağı Region Upper Triassic- Upper Cretaceous Lorasdağı Formation and
Midostepe Formation make the basement of the unit. These units were covered Upper Cretaceous Hatip
Ophiolitic Complex and Çayırbağı Ophiolite. Upper Miocene-Lower Pliocene Ulumuhsine Formation
unconformably lies over the older units. All of these units covered unconformably by the Quaternary-Actual Alluvials.
Chemical analysis such as major oxides (SiO2 , Al2 O3 , Fe2 O3 , MgO, CaO, Na2 O, K2 O, TiO2 , P2 O5 ,
MnO, Cr2 O3 ), trace elements (Co, Mo, Cu, Pb, Zn, Cd, Sb, Sn, Ta, W, Zr, Ag, Au, Hg, Ni, Sc) and PGM
(Pd, Pt) and rare earth element (La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, Tm, Yb) were perform on the
rock and plaser samples derived from the area.
Working in the fields of electrical geophysical methods on the basis of rezistivity levels / units
tried to be determined. Hatip-Çayırbağı region four-point was measurement. As a result of the data
obtained in Hatip regions in the levels of the silica, magnetite and chromite-rich serpentinite formations
have been identified.
