Abstract Electron microprobe analyses of ore samples from the Murgul copper deposit (NE Turkey) serve to identify several rare and complex ore minerals with occasionally high contents of Bi, Se and Te. These are tennantite, aikinite, hessite, tetradymite, galena, and matildite. The subvolcanic hydrothermal environment of the mineral assemblages corresponds to medium temperature conditions of formation
