The discovery of a middle-scale mantle trough in the Kirovograd ore district under uranium, gold and lithium deposits brought a new insight into metallogeny of the district and made it necessary to trace its surface structures to the M boundary.
In this study, surface structures are described in more detales using numerous data from exploration drilling, relationships between the crustal Kirovograd-Novoukrainsk granitoid massif, mantle-related Korsun-Novomirgorod massif and M interface are discussed, surface and deep structures of uranium ore fields are correlated and vertical metasomatic and ore zonality of large uranium deposits is considered.
