Basalt in Ukraine: deposits, origin, composition and use in construction

Basalt is a volcanic rock that is formed as a result of the cooling of molten lava. There are significant deposits of basalt in Ukraine, which are located in the Carpathians, Crimea, Transcarpathia and Ivano-Frankivsk region. Let's look at more details about this material.

Origin and composition of basalt

Basalt is formed under the earth's crust during volcanic eruptions, when molten lava cools very quickly. It consists mainly of silicon, aluminum oxides, iron, magnesium and calcium, which makes it a strong and stable material.

Basalt deposits in Ukraine

Ukraine has many basalt deposits, in particular in the Carpathians, Crimea and Transcarpathia. These deposits are of great importance for construction due to the high strength and stability of basalt.

Application in construction

Basalt is widely used in construction for the production of asphalt, concrete, road surface, as well as for the production of masonry and other building materials. It is also used to create decorative products and facade cladding.


Basalt is an important material in construction, which has high strength and wear resistance. Basalt deposits in Ukraine allow the use of this material for various construction projects, which contributes to the development of the country's construction industry.
