The Pohorelá line (PL) is an important tectonic element dividing the major pre-Cenozoic lithotectonic units of the Northern and Southern Veporicum. Moreover, the PL separates occurrences of the Gemericum, Meliaticum, and Silicicum on its S–SE side against the Fatricum and Hronicum on NW side. Continuation of the PL towards the SW was unknown because the pre-Cenozoic basement of the Veporic Unit is covered with Cenozoic (Neogene) volcanics and volcanosedimentary rocks. Reinterpretations of the deep boreholes data reveal a outhwest continuation of the PL to the Po ana, Javorie, and tiavnica stratovolcanic complexes basement and then further towards the SSW.
