Discovery of probably Tunguska meteorites at the bottom of Khushmo river's shoal
Abstract. The author describes some stones which he found at the bottom of Khushmo River's shoal during 1988 expedition into the region of the Tunguska impact (1908). Photos of stones are presented. Three stones have traces of melting and the author consider these stones as probable Tunguska meteorites. Some arguments are presented to confirm author's opinion. Results of investigation of prospect holes in peat-bogs are briefly described too. New data concerning heat impulse of the Tunguska impact are obtained. There is the assumption that some meteorites which are formed during comet impact looks like stony or glass-like thin plates with traces of melting.

New book: V.Kopeykin, Radar investigation of craters of Tunguska meteorite, Moscow, 2013 (in russian). Some pictures by V.Kopeykin you can see here (Suslov’s depression) :
Depth of Suslov’s crater is approximately 12 metres. V.Kopeykin consider such craters in peat-bogs as really produced by Tunguska meteorite. 40 craters were investigated around Suslov’s crater too (on the distance of 1,5 km from Suslov’s crater).
