Özet

The purpose of this study was to examine the geological, stratigraphic and organic geochemical features of the Kucukkuyu Formation out-cropping on Biga Peninsula, NW Turkey. The Lower-Middle Miocene formation crops out around the Gulf of Edremit and near Bayramic-Can in the north of the Kazdag Mountains. The unit is composed of shale, siltstone and sandstone intercalations. The shale is bituminous and represents a potential source rock in the region.
