Surskaya greenstone structure of Middle Prydniprovia granite- greenstone province of the Ukrainian Shield as a constituent of Prydniprovia paleovault is spatialy and genetically related to the Archean longitudinally oriented planetary rank East-European-Mozambique hot belt, more than 10 thou. km. long. Results of three-dimentional gravity simulation of deep-seated section of the Surskaya structure based upon the data of formation analysis of filling volcanogenic-sedimentary strata completely supported not only its syncline structure but also petrogenetic identity as to all 14 greenstone structures of the Middle Prydniprovia.
