The orientations of the characteristic components of the natural remanent magnetization (NRM) converted to the stratigraphic coordinate system are analyzed. It is shown that the vector distribution was greatly effected by local tectonic rotations. The mean direction of the prefold NRM component has been found by the remagnetization circles intersection method; it corresponds with the paleomagnetic pole coordinates F=32,6 N; λ=146,4 E; Dρ=1,5; Dm=2,9.
