In the Donetsk area deposits from the Carboniferous period are exposed. Plantfossils are found in these deposits. Because of mining there are many dumping grounds with rocks from the mines.
In Druzhkovka, about 60km north of Donetsk there are beautifull fossil trees from the carboniferous (over 1 meter in diameter). The Araucarias trees are a local attraction.
