Anarak is the smallest city in Isfahan province, Iran, located 1429 meters above sea level at 53D 41' 56" eastern longitude and 33D 18'42"on northern latitude

Anarak's language is ancient persian


Location:(Anarak, a city of about 4000 people is loctaed at the edge of the kavir loot and about 75 Km from the city of Nain. The city is surrounded by ruins of an old wall and three look out towers that were built about 100 years ago to keep the bandits (Hossein Kashi and his gang) out. There are little agriculture in this region but there are many mines located close to Anarak.  Nakhlalk, alead mine is the largest active mine close to Anarak. Many people live in Anarak andcommute daily to Anarak

Language: people in Anarak speak a dialogue called Anaraki, Anaraki is spoken in Anarak andcities within 40 miles of it such as Choopanan

Climate: Anarak's climate is a typical desert climate, little rainfall, hot dry summer days and cool nights. Most of the old home are adobe and have a court yard, people movefrom south to north of the court yard from winter to summer

 Some of these old home like my uncles had about 15 roomsand a big open roofed balconey where you could sit in the summer afternoon and (called Sofe) and cool off via wind directed by wind chiminies ( Badgir)

 Most famous song: I told you 100 times golnesa (say var vetomvat Golnesa)

 ZargarAbad: Abondoned Old Mine

 Chah Shoreh: Salty water well, Abondoned farm Cu-Ni-Co-As-U mineralization in the Anarak area of central Iran occurs at the intersection of the Uroumieh-Dokhtar magmatic belt with the Great Kavir–Doruneh fault. In the area, the volcanism associated with the magmatic belt is shoshonitic in character. Chemical analyses indicate that these are subduction related magmas. Detailed investigations in the vicinity of the Talmessi mine indicate that mineralization occurred in two separate stages: a first stage of copper sulphide mineralization with a relatively simple mineralogy and associated with the Eocene magmatism, and a second stage of Cu-Ni-Co-As-U mineralization with a complex mineralogy, which probably formed during another phase of deformation in the Upper Miocene. This later deformation reactivated previously formed faults. The mineralogy, element association and isotopic composition of carbonates for the second phase of mineralization suggest a different origin to that of the first phase. The fluids are likely to be non-magmatic in origin, possibly showing an increased input from meteoric waters. The close spatial association with basic/ultrabasic igneous rocks indicates that these may be the source through alteration and remobilization. The arsenide mineralization in the Anarak area shows many features that are similar to those of the classic five-element deposits. Cu and polymetal Anarak deposits are located at the northern side of the Esfahan Province. These deposits have a long history of exploitation. Old workings and smelting slag are distributed across Central Iran Great Desert from Dom Mountain (Qermez Cu-Au mine) to Doshakh Mountain (Chahpalang Au-W-Cu mine). Also there are remnants of traditional furnaces in the abandoned mines of the area showing the age of mines. What preserved so far, going back to the last period of exploitation by German experts at 1945, end of Second World War

 Talhe deposit is located 21 km away from the west of Anarak County, at 32 02 08 N and 53 35 00 E. the deposit has occurred in the Dareh-Anjir mountains. The deposit is 1645 m above sea level. It is a vein deposit in the crystalline limestone of lower Paleozoic, Lakh marble. The host rock is a thrust slice within Anarak metamorphic complex. The deposit has a hydrothermal-telethermal genesis with Cu-Mo mineralization related to the Oligocene magmatism

 In this project, rock samples were taken from tunnels and trenches of the mine. Malachite, chalcocite, and covellite are the main ore minerals of the mine. All fractured zones have favorable mineralization. Highest grade of mineralization was measured at trench number 8 of open-pit mine and around tunnel number 4 that has a vein and stockwork structures. The veins dip 45-88 degrees toward west. In a fault system striking N060 that cut the limestone and marble, the mineralized zone is up to 13 m thick

 A major part of deposit has extracted by open-pit and underground methods, but a considerable portion of deposit still exists. It is estimated that the deposit is up to 100m deep and 1000 square meters wide. The Cu, Ag and Mo grades range between 0.7 and 8.46%, 5 and 45 ppm and 2 and 900 ppm, respectively. Lower levels of deposit have not been extracted so far. But the ore volume in the upper levels of the open-pit is negligible. The deposit may have considerable Ni and Co mineralization that shows the link between fluids and ophiolitic rocks. It seems that from the trench number 6 to upper levels, the zone is sufficiently rich with 1% Cu ore. The ore richness decrease downward. More exploration in the area is suggested
