ABSTRACT

Alluvial gold mining that takes place in dozens of countries, among them Russia, presently progressively gives way to hard-rock mining, as well as to this precious metal extraction from other sources, including nontraditional. At the same time both in Russia and in other territories of placer gold mining a lot of former or still operational mining sites exist that contain residual precious metal in significant quantities. In conjunction with modern technologies, they may become appreciable sources of gold mining.
In the described research, both domestic and foreign experiences were analyzed. It was found that problems of mutually close technogenic gold-bearing objects’ development are remaining very poorly investigated. As a result, the necessity has been substantiated for new methodological and technological-economic approaches formulating, which would secure effective and large-scale integrated management of territorially contiguous technogenic placer deposits’ development. A number of methodological propositions for one of such approaches were formulated. Besides, an algorithm and a computer programs’ set were developed, which may be used for technical-economic indicators calculating that describe conjoint or mutually close technogenic objects of placer gold deposits’ simultaneous development.
In addition, typical merger processes in regional and national economies’ mining sectors were analyzed, their features examined, advantages and negative aspects of integration processes compared and critically evaluated. That may serve as an important instrument in solving economic problems, which are accompanying residue technogenic object development.
