The nature monument Corsac-Mohyla [Corsac Grave - tr.]

On the left bank of the steppe small river of Corsac, there is a geological monument of nature of national importance Corsac-Mohyla [Corsac Grave - tr.].

The upland occupies an area of ​​about 100 hectares and consists of six outcrops on the surface of the rocks of the Azov crystalline massif. The geological age of the Corsac-Mohyla exceeds 1.8 billion years.

The Turkic word "kursak" or "korsak" means "fox". However, most linguists associate the name with the word "belly". Thus, Korsak-Grave can be safely called the Belly-Mountain.

At the end of the XIX century, the Corsac-Grave attracted the attention of geologists. In 1876, geological surveys were conducted here, establishing extensive deposits of iron ore. In 1893, attempts to extract minerals from the depths of Corsac-Mohyla were undertaken by the Russian-Belgian enterprise "Providence". To date, one of the hills has visible traces of their activities – pits.
