The Oligo-Miocene Etili epithermal deposits are a well-preserved fossil geothermal system in the Canakkale Region and is one of the largest fossil siliceous hot spring deposits of Turkey. Main E-W and NE-SW trending faults systems occur with minor NW-SE fracture systems perpendicular to the main faults. Silica-rich deposits are commonly observed in or on the calc-alkaline tuffs, ashes and pyroclastic rocks that were the products of the magmatism controlled by the extensional tectonic regime.
