In the Outer Carpathians in Barnasiówka radiolarian shale formation, there is an intercalation underlied by bentonite. There were found very rare elements and minerals in this intercalation. It was recognized that this horizon has been filled with products of a big object collision with Earth. The age of the manganese-iron intercalation was determined by potassium-argon (K-Ar) dating of illites to be (89.3±1.2) Ma. Similar age, (85.2±0.6) Ma, was found for the post-impact glass from the Boltysh crater in Ukraine. It was concluded that the formation of this intercalation was synchronous with the Boltysh crater formation at the Cenomanian/Turonian boundary. The research for the K-Ar age of the crater creation in Logoisk (Belarus) established its formation to (124.2±1.2) Ma ago.
