Hateg Basin is an Upper Cretaceous syn-orogenic sedimentary basin located in the South Carpathians. Upper Maastrichtian continental deposits have been studied mostly along Sibisel Valley (Sanpetru Formation), with outcrops famous for the best preserved and most diverse latest Cretaceous fauna of Europe. Equivalent sections also occur along Raul Mare Valley, which has been investigated from sedimentological, palaeomagnetic and geochemical point of view for a possible correlation with Sibisel Valley section, as the upper member of Sanpetru Formation. The age of this formation is adjusted according to magnetostratigraphic results while the potential source materials and sediment dynamics show the evolution of Hateg Basin.
