Therefore, the chronology of complexes with Pit-Comb Ware was given by analogy with materials of Lyalovo culture in the Volga--Oka interfluve though the chronological framework of this culture was not always defined identically by researchers.
The paper purpose is to present the results of lithological, mineralogical, geochemical, microscopic structural and texture features of the highly dispersed siliceous Upper Miocene rocks of the Ishim Formation at the territory of the Tobol-Ishim interfluve. The studies are intended to identify general trends for further use in local industry.

An almost continuous belt of high elevation-relief values may be traced in an elliptical pattern parallel to the Cardigan Bay coastline; this belt incorporates the dissected plateaux of Garreg Hir (D6), Trannon (D9), Central Wales (D8), and the Teifi-Tywi interfluve (D19).
