The spectrum of the modelled regular superlattice which includes contacts is investigated using the transfer-matrix formalism. It is shown that the separated pair resonances in the chain spectrum (which are distributed in the permitted and in the forbidden zones, respectively) appear due to the existence of a single contact. The eroding of the noted minizones after making correlations between the separate regular segments in the superlattice is demonstrated. Similar resonances and minizones which can be called the Tamm resonances and minizones are considered to be useful elements for describing the surface states and zone-band structure of real systems within the restricted geometry.
