Relative locations of the two groups of 2005–2006 Mukacheve series of recurrent earth­quakes were determined using an algorithm designed based on an assumption that a grade of cross-correlation between the records of recurrent events at the same station decays exponentially with separation between their sources, the locations turning out to arrange into almost a flat surface in each of the groups. After application of the algorithm to a combined set of cross-correlation coefficients of the two groups their sources just the same appeared to belong to the same plane, their relative locations very similar to ones determined in [Gnyp, 2010] with application of differential travel times and source specific station terms.
