Name(s) in local language(s):
Kalusz, Galicia


Potassium salt deposit, discovered in the late 19th century.

Last century this deposit was in the Galicia Region of E Poland occupied by the USSR. The Polish name for this locality was Kalusz. After the resetting of geographic boundaries after the fall of the USSR and the resumption of the CIS this deposit fell under Ukrainian borders.
