Abstract

The results of K/Ar datings indicate that volcanic activity started in the Upper Badenian and terminated in the Pannonian. Thus, the estimated length of volcanic activity is about 5 Ma. In the Tokaj Mts. the close association of acid and intermediate volcanism, both in time and space over the whole Sarmatian stage is manifested in the K/Ar dates, too. The present investigations have verified that intermediate volcanic activity continued unquestionably into the Pannonian, whereas acidic volcanic activity ended probably at the Sarmatian-Pannonian boundary. The youngest known Neogene volcanite in the Tokaj Mts. is the basalt exposed in borehole Sarospatak-10. -from Authors
