“The fact that the former border between the continents marked incorrectly, found during an expedition to the Ural mountains. The inaccuracy of the previous layout showed many studies. In particular, we found the watershed, the place where the from lakes rivers flowing in different directions. This place is a tectonic fracture, the depth of one hundred meters. Further in the mountains may see rocks on the surface in one direction, where the joint platforms.

Now geologists are seeking to define a new boundary on the ground. “Previously, on the old border were metal signs, but the indigenous people took it for scrap.

One stone near the pike lake have already established, the second will be delivered in the mountains. In the manufacture of the memorial sign is ready to help the Federal penitentiary service, which has a lapidary workshop in the colony in settlement Harp. Help geologists promise and in the administration of the Governor YANAO.
