Abstract : The paleomagnetic study of the Cretaceous deposits, was based on the two most complete and best exposed sections, along the Kara-Kul'dzha River and on the slopes of Mount Kampyr-Rovat. The 234 selected samples are distributed as follows. For 222 out of the 234 samples the direction of natural remanent magnetization was determined with adequate reliability. The Cenomanian is represented in the sections by a large bed of orange-red sandstones with interlayers of red clays and aleurolites, which in the Kara-Kul'dzha region has a total thickness of 400 m and mean bed position azimuth 250 degrees dip 48 degrees; the natural remanent magnetization of the sampled rocks varies within the range.
