Abstract: The paper extends our previous study of metamorphosed Paleozoic rocks of the Gemeric Superunit (Kruczyk et al. 2000) on four exposures of Paleozoic and two exposures of Triassic rocks. The anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS) results support the conclusion of previous study of its strong correlation with the tectonic Alpine fabric. Paleomagnetic data, obtained here only for two exposures (one Paleozoic and one Triassic) fit the previous results which indicate Middle Miocene remagnetization and subsequent rotations of respective tectonic blocks around local vertical axes.
