Özet

The Celikhan fluorite mineralization is concentrated in the thrust zone between the Ptnarbast Formation, which forms the hanging wall, and the Kalecik Limestone foot wall. Fluorite occurs as fracture fills in the thrust zone and as replacement of the foot wall. The wall rock alteration consists of calcite, barite, quartz and kaolinite.
