The Kirazlıyayla deposit is one of Pb-Zn (±Cu) deposits associated with andesitic volcanism cutting through the metamophics of Karakaya complex. It is a structurally controlled, vein-stockwork style, mesothermal ore deposit. Replacement, brecciation, vein/veinlets, carries, sea-island, and dissemination textures were identified. Pyrite, sphalerite, chalcopyrite, galena, tennantite, and covellite constitute the ore mineral paragenesis. Quartz, calcite and dolomite with kaolinite account for the gangue minerals. Supergene stage is insignificant. The Kirazlıyayla mineralization is a Zn-Pb (±Cu) mineralization hosted by tectonically controlled andesitic volcanism within the Karakaya metamorphics and has common features with the other occurrences in the western Anatolia.
