This paper present the results from petromagnetic studies of the North Caucasus-Lower Cretaceous deposits. Analyses of the magnetic properties of rocks in base sections have allowed to reveal several impulses of tectonic activation in the Hauterivian and Barremian. The impulses were accompanied by transport of magnetic terrigenous material from the magnetic complexes of the Central Ridge into the Cis-Caucasian Basin.
