pdf  Palaeomagnetism of sedimentary rocks of the South Uralian Asha series: new data
Collection of rock samples from the Kuk-Karauk and Basa Formations of the Upper Vendian Asha series on the Basu River, Zilim River and Kuk-Karauk Stream have been studied. Multicomponent structures of the studied rocks magnetization have been identified. Component ages have been estimated by comparison with the data for the East-European plate. The results allow us to trace and to date the main stages of the tectonic history of the belt placed along the western side of the Main Uralian thrust.

Key words: palaeomagnetism, tectonics, Vendian, Southern Ural.
