The results of a palynological study of the Upper Cretaceous and Paleogene sediments of three boreholes drilled in the South Transurals are presented. The Upper Cretaceous Kuznetsovo, Kamyshlov, Zaikovo, Fadyushino, and Gan’kino formations are exposed by Boreholes 3, 9, and 13, which contain four spore and pollen biostratons. Five dinocyst biostratons are identified for the first time: local zone with Chatangiella spectabilis, local zone with Spinidinium sverdrupianum, local zone with Chatangiella chetiensis, local zone with Chatangiella manumii–Dinogymnium spp., and local zone with Cerodinium diebelii. The comparison of the Late Cretaceous dinocyst assemblages of the southern and northern territories of Western Siberia shows that, in spite of significant provincialism of dinoflagellates, there is a series of stratigraphic intervals in the middle–upper Turonian, lower Coniacian, lower Santonian, Campanian, and lower Maastrichtian, which have interregional correlation potential. In the Talitsa, Serov, Irbit, and Chegan formations, intervals of six zones of the Thanetian–Bartonian age of the dinocyst scale of Western Siberia are identified in Borehole 9 (Alisocysta margarita, Apectodinium hyperacanthum, Deflandrea oebisfeldensis (acme), Dracodinium simile, Rhombodinium draco, and Rh. ornatum), as well as five local zones by spores and pollen. The Kurtamysh Formation is characterized by a Rupelian spore and pollen assemblage. Significant sedimentation hiatuses in the Cretaceous–Paleogene sequence corresponding to the upper part of the Maastrichtian, the most part of the Danian and Selandian, the lowermost parts of the Ypresian, middle–upper Ypresian, Lutetian, the upper parts of Bartonian, Priabonian, and the lower parts of the Rupelian are established.
