We present new results of investigation of Middle Miocene Badenian tuffite levels exposed in Southern Pol and within the Gdow "embayment" area (tuffites from Wiatowice, upper part of the Skawina Beds, foraminiferal biozone Ilγ) and compare them with the well known and extensively described Bochnia Tuffite level at Chodenice near Bochnia (upper part of the Chodenice Beds, foraminiferal biozone IIIA). The 40Ar/39Ar ages of the glass separates obtained from these layers were determined applying (standard) incremental heating techniques the Wiatowice and Bochnia tuffites have been datedto be 13.76 ±0.08 Ma, and 13.62 ±0.10 Ma old, respectively.
