Tectono-magmatic evolution and distribution of porphyry Cu systems in the Central Tethys Region of Turkey, the Caucasus, Iran, and southern Pakistan

October 31, 2013

Recent compilation of geodynamic, geochemical, geochronologic, and ore deposits data provided an opportunity to review the continental margin, intra-oceanic, and post-collisional tectonic settings in the Central Tethys Region. These settings formed during sequential rifting of microcontinents from the passive margin of Gondwana, their northward transport across the Neo-Tethys Ocean, and their collision with the active margin of Eurasia.
