In this study, therapetic effects of thermal waters were investigated in Zilan valley, eastern part of the Turkey. Purpose of this study is determination of chemical properties of thermal waters and investigation of therapautic effects of them in terms of human health. Also relations between chemical properties of thermal waters and geological units were investigated in Zilan Valley. Samples were collected from five sample points and anion / cation analyses were carried out for five thermal water samples (from three thermal wells and two thermal springs). First well was drilled in 1988 by MTA (Mining Research Center in Turkey) and sample was collected by MTA in 1988. Also other two thermal wells were drilled by MTA and samples were collected in 2000 by MTA. Analyses were carried out by MTA in 1988 and 2000. Two thermal spring waters were collected in 2014 in content of this study. Anion / cation analyses were carried out in content of this study in ACME Analytical Laborataries. Also, geological map of the Zilan Valley was prepared in content of this study. As a result of the study, water types were detected as Na-Cl type for all thermal well waters (numbered ZG-1, ZG-2 and ZG-3 wells) and numbered 111 thermal spring. Water type was detected as Na-Cl-SO4 for numbered 112 thermal spring. Thermal waters with Na-Cl have a lot of therapeutic effects. Thermal waters with Na-Cl can be used in rheumatism, gynecologic diseases, neuritis, treatment of unconsolidated fractures and at the upper respiratory tract diseases. Geologically, all thermal waters are originated from marl (limestone with clay) units in Kızıldere Formation in the Zilan Valley. Cap rocks of the thermal system are Aladağ volcanics. Thermal waters in Zilan Valley are so important for human health and they should be use for treatments.
