Abstract (in english)
   During the compilation of Explanatory Notes to the Geological Map of the Danube Lowland - Nitrianská pahorkatina Upland, new investigation, carried out in the Bánovská kotlina depression, has brought new information on its Neogene sediments stratigraphy. On this basis we have redefined stratigraphic range of the Svinná Formation (Lower Badenian) and divided the so far homogenous Ruskovce Formation into 3 lithostratigraphical units. The lower part has been assigned to the Kamenec Formation. The epiclastic volcanic sandstones and claystones, with layers of recarbonized claystones found as overlying it, have been ranged to the Handlová Formation. The presence of the mentioned formations has not been known from the Bánovská kotlina depression till now. We have ranged the pyroclastic rocks found above the Handlová Formation to the Ruskovce Member (redefined Ruskovce Formation), which represents the peripheral member of the Vtáčnik Formation
