Abstract

The focus of the study is to examine the precious elements of the metallic occurrences which arc related to sulphure mineralizations in Yenice-Arapucandere Pb-Zn ore deposit (Canakkale). The ore bearing deposits in northwestern Anatolia show a great deal of similarity to the distribution of the Tertiary Quaternary volcanic and intnisive rocks in the region. In addition various kind of metallic ore deposits form as a zonation. Arapucandere hydrothermal polimetallic ore deposits are richness of those complicated geology and controlled by tectonic components. The research includes which amount of precious rare elements (Gallium, Germanium, Cadmium, Gold, Silver, Indium, Selenium, Thallium, Rhenium and Tellurium) is being in metallic sulphide mineralizations. For this purpose, some metallic ore deposits, in study area, were explored, sampled and analysed with ICP-MS and AAS methods. Results of the analyses showed us remarkable rate of silver, gold, selenium and cadmium in enrichment ore samples.
