A team of scientists from Tomsk State University in Russia analyzed a newly discovered fossilized Siberian unicorn skull, found in Kazakhstan with fossils of mammoths and prehistoric bison.
Dating the fossils revealed the startling timing, published in the American Journal of Applied Science.
With the Ar technique, integrated ages range from 344 to 367 Ma, with uncertainties on the order of 1 Ma, and two samples yielded plateaus, i.e.
the best determined ages, at 360.3 ± 0.9 and 370.0 ± 0.7 Ma.
This was also aided by the discovery and exploitation of vast reserves of Siberian mineral resources.
According to Vasily Radlov, among the earliest inhabitants of Central Siberia were the Yeniseians, who spoke a language different from the later Uralic and Turkic people.
The Ar plateau age of 370.0 ± 0.7 Ma (conventional calibration) or 373.4 ± 0.7 Ma (recalculated per Renne et al., 2010), the most reliable age obtained in this study, is compatible with recent determinations of the Late Devonian extinction events at the end-Frasnian (~ 376 ± 3 Ma).
These results underscore a need for further work, in progress.
During the 19th century, the Trans-Siberian Railway was constructed, supporting industrialization.

Dating these samples as a concerted effort in two independent laboratories working jointly on their interpretation is a rather rare yet very valuable exercise.With the K-Ar technique, ages ranging from 338 to 367 Ma with uncertainties on the order of 5 Ma were obtained.
Thus, a comparison with dates on other fractions from the same sample is necessary.
