Mar'inka, revised entry

Found 1976

Iron. Coarsest octahedrite, Ogg (IIB)

Mar'inka is listed in the BM Catalogue as iron, "found in coalbearing carboniferous strata at Mar'inka (Donetsk, Ukraine) dated at 285-340 m.y." This iron was classified by Alekseev et al. (Meteoritika 46, 1987, 81-85) as IIB-Ogg, very similar chemically and also morphologically to Sikhote-Alin fragments collected at the crater field. Cosmogenic Mn-53 is also similar to Sikhote-Alin values; it gives a terrestrial age of < 10 m.y. Alekseev et al. conclude that Mar'inka cannot be a fossil meteorite, but is probably a fragment of Sikhote-Alin, while some details of its trace element chemistry differ from Sikhote-Alin. Information, M. I. Petaev, Committee on Meteorites, Russian Academy of Sciences, Ul. M. Ulyanovoi 3, Moscow 117313, Russia.
