The Kirovograd polymetal ore district is discussed in broad space and age boundaries as consisting of main uranium and associated gold and lithium deposits. Their distribution is dominated by the submeridional Novoukrainsk-Korsun'-Novomirgorodsk pluton, parallel fault zones and sublatitudinal Subbotsk-Mashorinsk fault system. New interpretation of geological and seismic data revealed correlation between established on surface structural pattern of the district, M-discontinuity relief and heterogeneity of Earth's crust. As a result, the area of most intensive ore concentration was related to a deep sublatitudinal trough in M relief.
