The Rest came from a much smaller amount of ore from the mines of the Urals and a large amount of secondary material. In 2001, the share of ores in civil engineering 38%; by 2015, this proportion was expected to rise to 75%. Following the mineral fuel industry, the leading branch of the mineral industry, in terms of their contribution to the national economy, the metallurgical sector, which contributed 19% of the value of industrial production, a proportion of 11.1% of the value of industrial capital stock, and employed 9.3% of the industrial work force In the next 5 years, new field developments at the Middle Caspian project at Kurmangazy (OAO Lukoil Oil co.); the Komsomolskoye and the Vankorskoye projects (OAO Rosneft Oil co.); the Prirazlomnoye project (Gazprom); the Sakhalin island projects; the West Salymskoye project (Shell Joint Venture); and the Timan Pechora project (OAO Lukoil Oil co. A further limited increase in iron ore production, the resource base was projected to the year 2020 without a significant expansion. What is more, the Soviet data reserves for many mineral resources was either kept secret or difficult to obtain, and the same is true for Russian mineral resource data. The moderate scenario is characterized by a GDP growth of 3.3% to 3.4% per year until 2020, an increase in investment in fixed capital by 3.6 times, and fixed prices for oil to a little more than half of the optimistic scenario and the gas prices around 20% lower than in the optimistic scenario.. Gazprom controlled almost the entire production of natural gas in Russia, Norilsk Nickel Mining and Metallurgical Company (MMC) produced more than 90% of Russian nickel and platinum-group metals (PGM), and ALROSA Company Ltd. To look for of 2005, but the Russian company had begun, exposure to Western markets and stock exchanges, money in larger amounts and cheaper than in Russia. – Quality reserves at the open-pit operations in the KMA were becoming depleted, although the area hosts significant lower grade resources in the weathered zones. Although the creation of additional coal production capacity through the expansion and extension of existing mines and the opening of new mines was possible based on reserves, this would make investment in the coal require-sector are well above the historic level of investment in the past 5 years, and doubts as to the feasibility of the planned expansion. Stable operations, ALROSA would increase must happen its ore reserves by carrying out intensive prospecting for new diamond. As nickel-rich ores at Norilsk Nickel become empty, Norilsk Nickel will switch to mining larger quantities of ores, primarily copper-rich ores that have a higher copper content relative to their nickel content than the nickel-rich ores, but with a lower metal content for both metals. The mining company operates seven plants and five mines in Russia, with offices in Beijing, Singapore, Panama and Brazil, among others. Oil production and growth was to be centered in the traditional oil-producing regions, such as in Western Siberia, the Northern Caucasus and the Volga region and in new oil and gas provinces in the European North (Timan-Pechora region), in Eastern Siberia and the Russian far East, and in the South to the North of the Caspian region
West Africa, Russian mining companies opt for Orange
Russian Coal Producers Invest in Operations
These include coal reserves in operating coal mines, mines under construction, and in areas explored in detail for new mine construction. In contrast to the methods in the market economy countries, this method does not include the use of the market-to establish economic criteria, the feasibility of the development of these resources with the current technology at prevailing market conditions. Khingan resources to initiate the processing of tailings on the Khinganskoye Me in the Jewish Autonomous Republic. To maintain and increase the output levels, Norilsk Nickel is planning to switch to mining a greater proportion of kupferoxydul and disseminated ores instead of nickel-rich ores, the used goods. The second stage of the steel works of Chelyabinsk, Nizhny Tagil, Kuznetsk, the Oskol, the Uralsk, West Siberian mills. Reserves at Udokan and neighboring camps have been reported sites, of 10 to more than 20 Mt of copper in ore at grades of between 0.7% and 4% copper. Plans for RUSAL with called for the pooling of their resources, that of SUAL and with headquarters in Switzerland, Glencore International AG United Company RUSAL. It is also a leading producer of platinum metals, with around 50 per cent of the world’s supply of palladium (practically the entire output of the metal in Russia) and almost the same percentage of platinum.. For example, the first group of mills has the lowest share of open-hearth production, the highest level of the caster, and produced the highest quality range of steel products. In the last 4 years, foreign companies 15% in controls to 18% of Russian gold production, the largest share for any commodity in the Russian mining industry
Almost 60% of the iron ore reserves are located in the Kursk magnetic anomaly (KMA) in European Russia and about 15% are in the Ural region.
So, do not reserve the data on the basis of the Soviet method compared to market economy definitions of reserves.
This gas-production targets have been achieved by the development in the traditional gas producing regions, the most important of which was West Siberia, and in the new oil – and gas-producing provinces in East Siberia, the Russian far East, the European North including offshore in the Arctic sea and on the Yamal Peninsula.
A Gazprom subsidiary issued a report and recommendation by the amendment of the export strategy for the Russian gas industry.
But unlike oil and gas, especially of the state, the Russian mining industry is mostly in private ownership..
The oil prices are provided by this strategy in the year of 2003, even for the optimistic scenario were about one-half of the 2005 oil prices.
The message reserves the right, in the Soviet Union (and Russia very often employed for its resource reporting) is based on establishing drilling parameters to determine the safety reserves. The Ministry of natural resources reported that the copper and other mineral industries also are highly concentrated, but that the situation is better for coal and alluvial gold.
