Geotouristic sites of the Volhynian basalts
Getouristic sites illustrating geology of unique European occurrence of flood basalts similar to Siberian and Deccan Traps. Volhynian basalts being Precambrian (Vendian) in age are significantly older than the Siberian and Deccan ones, which formed at the end of Permian and Cretaceous respectively. In the case of Volhynian basalts additional point of interest is their native copper mineralization comparably with the legendary Lake Superior world's largest occurrence of native copper.
