Big crushed stone quarry on South-Western exocontact of Mariupol'skii alkaline massif. It is under operation, and is much more large and deeper than old Zircon quarry near Donskoe village on the massif sensu stricto. Main rocks in the quarry are Precambrian monzonites. Fenitization and albitization linear zones are connected with Mariupol'skii massif and are superimposed over this rocks. The most interesting rare metal mineralisation is connected with albitization zones.
18 valid minerals.

1600 - 2500 Ma
|Paleoproterozoic intrusive and metamorphic terranes|
Age: Proterozoic (1600 - 2500 Ma)
Comments: Mixtures of metamorphic and intrusive or plutonic rocks, tracts known as crystalline, migmatitic terranes, moderately to highly metamorphosed rocks of unknown origin with or without intrusions. This classification is inherently prone to variable interpretation, as other compilers might distinguish some packages by their metamorphic or gneissic protoliths, and the associated age ranges may be more variable.
Lithology: Intrusive and metamorphic terranes
