The studied iron ores are located along cracks and fractures in the microgabbro, diabase and basic type rocks anda re characterized by massive, dissemine and brecciatic veins and irregular masses. Various alteration types such as uralitization, albitization, chloritization, actinolitization, tremolitization, epidotization, sossuritization, carbonatization, argillitization and silicification have been developed by effecting of hydrothermal processes during fluid-rock interaction. Main mineralization is composed of mainly magnetite and pyrite and lesser amounts of hematite, muscetofitte, chalcopyrite, bornite, tetrahedrite, pyrhotite, marcasite, goethite and trungite. The geological, petrographical and mineralogical data indicate that the Karacaali iron deposit was formed by means of hydrothermal processes.
