A study on the typomorphic characteristics and age of the monazite the two giant titanium deposits of the Timan – Pizhemskoye and Yarega, which revealed differences in morphology in the species composition of the inclusions, the grain size, distribution of chemical types of a mineral associated with conditions of crystallization and different sources of the substance. The isochronous Th-Pb monazite age was calculated using the «CHIME» method. For Yarega monazite built three isochrone with age 1301, 1105 and 778 Ma; for Pizhemsky monazite-kularite one isochrone with age 782 Ma. Source of hith-Th monazite Yarega oil-titanium deposit could be ancient granite batholith and the origin Yarega less-Th monazite and Nd-Ce-monazite-kularite Pizhemskoye deposit with an age of ~ 780 Ma could be related to the hydrothermal conversion of the weathering crusts on lamprophyres close in age with lamprophyre (spessartite and kersantite) of Chetlassky Kamen.
