ABSTRACT

As is shown in the paper, Russia and its Far Eastern region (RFE) possess large
amounts of mineral wealth, comparable to that of China, USA, Australia, Canada and
other major mineral producing countries. The same can be said with respect to the
production of mineral commodities, including highly valuable ones. Unfortunately,
country’s and region’s mineral potentials are insufficiently geologically explored and are
not used to their full capacity. Presumably, the situation can be substantially corrected
in positive direction by attracting foreign and transnational capitals and expertise, both
on intrastate and transboarder bases.
