CHROMITE OCCURRENCES IN THE MERAM-ÇAYIRBAĞI OPHIOLITES (KONYA, TURKEY): GEOLOGICAL AND GEOCHEMICAL OUTLINE

Veysel ZEDEF

Abstract


Two chromite occurrences have been found within the Meram-Çayırbağı (Konya)
Ophiolitic Complex. The occurrences are located at Helvacıbaba and Bacağınkoyak Tepe, and the
complex is promising for large chromite orebodies. The chromites are formed in dunitic rocks of the
Meram-Çayırbağı Ophiolites. Chromite mineralization of >18.62 % (in weight) occurs in Helvacıbaba
while the Bacağınkoyak Tepe have a minimum 35 % of Cr2O3. The major and trace element data of both
occurrences indicate that the chemical composition of the chromite samples is mainly controlled by the
Cr2O3 concentration.
