ABSTRACT
The Ovacik epithermal gold-silver deposit is located in the west Anatolian extensional province,
adjacent to the ENE-trending Bergama graben, 100 kms north of the city of Izmir, western Turkey.
This province hosts several other epithermal deposits such as quartz-adularia-type Efemçukuru (3.1
Mt at 14.6 g/t) and Küçükdere(1.4 Mt at 6.4 g/t Au) and porphyry-related high sulfidation Kisladag
(276 mt/1.2 gt Au). Gold and silver of economic grades at the Ovacik deposit (4.19mt @ 7.6g/t) occur
