Skarn- and vein-type fluorite deposits in the vicinity of Yaylagozu, Yildizeli-Sivas, are found within the syenites and their skarn zones that are located in the Central Anatolia Massif. Mining was activite on several fluorite mineralizations during the early 1950 s, but is presently inactive. The goal of this study, on the basis of REE geochemistry and fluid inclusion investigations, is to explain the genesis and physicochemical conditions of fluorite mineralization hosted by calc-alkaline to alkaline syenites of Upper Cretaceous age.
