Abstract Sulfite mineralization, which was determined by the presence of pyrite and chalcopyrite minerals in

the surrounding rocks at the Sarıyer Nalbant Fountain in Istanbul, was determined by self-potential (SP) study.

The natural polarization (SP) study was carried out by shift measurement technique and the distance between

each profile and cups was planned as five meters. At the end of this study, equal voltage curves whose value

falls below -120mV levels were determined. These interlocking equilibrium curves clearly indicate to us the

existence of a sphere or a cylindrical sphere beneath the surface. The evaluations in the cross-sectional studies

were made by nomogram technique. Because of the evaluation, it has been determined that the mineralization is

located at 36 meters depth and 27 ° polarization angle. Subsequent drilling studies confirmed these findings of

the existing sulfurous structure.
