In 2018, the Russian-Kazakhstan archaeological expedition has continued joint studies of the Shilikty Basin in Eastern Kazakhstan. In order to clarify the boundaries of the Ushbulak site, a test pit has been established in addition to the main excavation trench. Filed research carried out in the new excavation area has yielded abundant archaeological materials, which techno-typological features are quite similar to the initial Upper Palaeolithic assemblage recovered from Trench 2. A new locality yielding surface finds attributed to the early and terminal Upper Palaeolithic has been discovered 15 km north from the Ushbulak site.
