The detrital zircons were delivered from sandstones of Brusov Fm. of Mezen basin. Absence of detrital zircons with 750-510 Ma and availability of two distinct populations - Paleoproterozoic and Archean - with ages resembled well known ages of crystalline complexes of EEP basement, all these agree with interpretation of Mezen basin as a basin at passive margin of Baltica.
