The Central Anatolian Crystalline Complex (CACC), where many granitoids are emplaced and related ore occurrences/deposits occur, is tectonically located in the Alpine-Himalayan Belt The CACC hosts numerous ore occurrences/deposits (Cu, Mo, Fe, Pb and Zn) that are spatially associated with granitoids. The calc-alkaline Karacaali, Baliseyh and Basnayayla granitoids that form the northern granitoid belt of the CACC host important Mo-Cu occurrences. In this paper, we document Re-Os isotopic age data in molybdenites to determine the timing of the granitoid-hosted mineralizations in the CACC.
