The paper reports results of a study of clastic heavy mineral assemblages and geochemical features of some assemblages in several Permian-Mesozoic cherty and siliceous-clayey sequences of the Sikhote Alin Region. They are composed of pelagic and hemipelagic sediments of the Panthalassa (Paleopacific) Ocean. Four typical mineral assemblages and their environments are established. In one of the ocean segments, where the sedimentary cover formed during Late Paleozoic - Early Cretaceous, the Permian pelagic domain was characterized by the amphibole-pyroxene assemblage with heavy minerals derived from ophiolites. The Triassic-Jurassic stage was marked by development of the clinopyroxene assemblage with heavy minerals derived from intraplate alkaline volcanic complexes. Middle-Late Jurassic hemipelagic sediments host the zircon-clinopyroxene assemblage with greater role of continental environments and presence of volcanic products of the convergence zone. Another segment of the ocean accumulated red cherts and siliceous-clayey sediments during Jurassic - Early Cretaceous under influence of island-arc volcanism.
