Several massifs of biotite uneven-grained, porphyric, pegmatite and aplite-pegmatite granites of the Kirovohrad Complex, and of hypesthene-bearing (charnockites) granites, monzonites and black-quartz granites of the Novoukrainka Complex are distributed within the eastern part of the Inhul region. The ages of granite crystallization were determined by U-Pb isotope method on multigrain fractions of monazite. Granites of the Pavlivka, Verblyuzhka, and Krynytchuvatska massifs were formed within the age interval of 2038-2046 Ma (within the error of measurement). Monazites sampled from aplite-pegmatite granites that widely crop out a long the right bank of the Bokovenka River (northwards of the Novooleksandrivka village) yielded a younger age of 2030.0 ± 0.3 Ma.Granitoids located in other parts of the Inhul region, i. e. Novoukrainka, Voznesensk, Lisohirska and some other smaller granite massifs, were formed during the same time interval.
