New geochemical, Sr/Nd isotope and zircon U-Pb LA-ICP-MS data from the Derik Volcanics in the Southeast Anatolian Autochthone Belt of Turkey are consistent with an Andean-type Cadomian arc that developed along the northern edge of the Arabian Plate during the Late Neoproterozoic. The Derik Volcanics represent a volcanic complex including andesites, rhyolites and basalts, with volcanoclastic and fluvial sediments. They are unconformably overlain by playa sediments with Early Cambrian ichno-fossils, followed by Middle Cambrian-Silurian shallow marine deposits.
