BETWEEN 2010 AND 2010

The nationwide development program of the mineral-crude base of Ukraine for the period up to 2010 (further-Program) aims to develop priority areas of geological research to ensure the Ukraine's economy is acute in its own. Mineral raw materials.

Section I.

State and main problems of the mineral and raw materials of Ukraine

To overcome the crisis situation in Ukraine's economy, based on its structural adjustment, it is possible to carry out the compression of the line only by relying on the resources of the state: labour and natural, basic manufacturing funds, communications, etc. This is important for the use of mineral-raw materials.

The mineral-raw base is a collection of the exploration and pre-estimated reserves of minerals and related components that can be applied in the fields of the economy of the country.

The mineral and raw materials complex at the 1990-1991 level provided 23 to 25 percent of the gross national product. With the mining and use of minerals, 48 percent of the industrial potential of Ukraine and up to 20 percent of its labour resources are linked. These rates are approaching the indicators of developed countries with a powerful mining industry, where there are 20 to 40 percent of total investment and up to 20 percent of labour resources.

As of 1 January 2005, the state's reserves of mineral reserves are estimated to have attracted about 8,000 deposits of 96 species of minerals, 3349 deposits of industry, and more than 2,000 mining enterprises operate on their base. The estimated cost per capita of the population of Ukraine is about 150,000. In the United States dollar, Western experts estimate more than 200 thousand. Dollars of dollars More than one-third of Ukraine's export output was from the implementation of mineral-raw products.

Some fossil fuels of Ukraine are represented by unique reserves and quality of raw materials, which are located in rather favorable conditions for the creation of mining complexes.

In Ukraine, significant amounts of coal mining (up to 2 percent of the world), iron (4%) and manganese (10 percent), uranium, titanium, zirconia, germanium, graphite (4 percent), caolin (18 percent), bromine, chiras, innermost (4%), etc. Metallurgical raw materials (quartzites, fluous limestone and dolomites), chemical raw materials (homemade sulfur, stone and oil salts), bonded stone (granites, gabbro, lamrado and other), glass sand, and so on. The interior of the state is removed from carbohydrate raw, brown coal, pear, cement raw materials, tugoswarm and florish clay, raw materials for the production of buddaterials, iodine, brom, various mineral water, precious and precious stones, piozoquartz, and others. Others. In relatively minor volumes, nickel ore, gold, scandium, gaffine, amber, ceolites, phosphate raw materials and so on.

With different levels of detail, the study of unconventional species of minerals for Ukraine is the chromium, lead, zinc, copper, molybdenum, beryllium, lithium, tantalum, niobium, rare lands, plaster, apathy, combustible shale, bishopper, and so on.

In the present day, the pace and extent of the reproduction of its own mineral and raw materials do not satisfy the needs of the state. Due to lack of funds, the volume of geological exploration was reduced to 3-4 times. Since 1994, the growth of the scouting reserves of most of the most important minerals does not compensate for their extraction. The effects of incurable policies of the past are already negatively marked on the efficiency of the economy. Analysis of the state of affairs and predictive estimates indicate that in the near future, the situation may be more complicated. The shortage of individual types of raw materials will be progressing if a resolute measures are already in place. Apart from the traditional import of some color and rare metals, coking coal, magnetism, a melting coat may result in the need to import raw materials, which has previously even emerged from Ukraine (a self-born sulfur, high quality flushes, etc.).

Over the past years, there have been confirmed the real possibilities for the future growth of hydrocarbons, discovery and exploration of new fossil fuels-gold, chromium, copper, lead, zinc, molybdenum, rare and rare earth elements, Lithium, niobium, tantalum, phosphorite, fluorita, stone-selflina raw materials and some others. There is also a sharp need for the need to create conditions for which the export potential of the state will increase.

The development of scientific technology determines the old world tendency to increase the consumption of rare metals-"vitamins of industry". Ukraine has the ability to create a powerful production of this identity.

The export potential of the mineral-raw complex can be increased by 1.5 to 2 times the import of mineral raw materials (without hydrocarbons)-cut by 60-70 percent. In total, it will give an annual savings of $5 to $6 billion.

It also has a comprehensive geological study of the territory of Ukraine (including the aquatoria of the Ukrainian part of the Black and Azov Seas) and the natural and anthropogenic changes in the geological environment in monitoring mode.

With regard to world-wide trends in the use of useful fossil fuels, the underlying problems of the mineral-raw database are associated with the following factors:

The value and non-renewable energy of natural mineral resources determine the need for their rational and fruity use. The intensive methods of extraction, processing, and consumption of minerals based on the latest advances of science and technology are an integral part of the world's technical revolution. The development of quality metallurgy as a means to increase the strength and durability of metal products leads to a reduction in the extraction of raw materials per unit of gross national product. The same is due to the introduction of more efficient technologies for the recycling of mineral raw materials, increasing the release of metals from secondary raw materials, energy savings and energy resources, the introduction of synthetic materials as metal replacement materials, etc.

Scientific and technological progress in all subfields of the mineral and raw complex and rigid competition between its producers in the economies of market economy cannot, contrary to all projections, go to the active use of poorer ore. On the contrary, in the last 10-20 years in these countries there has been a trend in unconditional mining and recycling of the richest ore of most types of mineral raw materials;

Despite all the more complete and rational use of the mining and products of its processing, the overall volume of its consumption in the market economy is at a slower pace, but continues to grow. The experience of developed countries (Japan, the United States, South Korea, Italy and others) suggests that increasing the overall level of socio-economic development is inevitably accompanied by increased consumption of natural mineral raw materials. Its level of calculation per capita is slow but is steadily increasing, and this trend is estimated to be preserved in the coming decades. Therefore, these countries continue to increase investment in geological exploration in their territories and on the territories of developing countries;

analysis of world trends over the last 7-10 year suggests that the most high rates in the world continue to grow and consume energy resources, leaguing metals and individual species of color and rare metals, noble metals and diamonds, raw materials for agriculture.

Chapter II.

The aim of the Program is to develop strategies and plan actions aimed at reducing Ukraine 's dependence on imports of scarce mineral raw materials and strengthening the country' s export capacity by domestic utility fossil fuels. have a great demand in the global market.

The main tasks of the implementation of the Programme are determined by the following priorities:

1. Energy resources

Gas, oil, condensate

Within the territory of Ukraine 4 oil and gas provinces are allocated, which are composed of 11 regions and 35 oil and gas promising areas. Three oil and gas regions are then considered: Eastern (Dnipro-Donetsk and north-western part of Donbass), Western (Volino-Podilsk Plate, Carpathians, Carpathians and Transcarpathia) and Southern (Black Sea, Crimea and within the exclusive). (Marine) Black and Azov Sea Economic Zone.

The state's mineral reserves are affected by oil, gas and gas condensate for 355 deposits. The main number (207) is concentrated in the East Region, 106 in the West, 42 in the South.

The annual production of hydrocarbons in recent years averaged 4 million tons of oil from condensate and 18 billion cubic meters of gas, which equates to 10 and 20 percent of the country's consumption.

On 1 January 2005, the initial production resources of hydrocarbons in the amount of 9322.7 million tons of conditioned fuel, oil with condensate-16,43.4 million tons and gas-7479.3 billion cubic meters. A significant portion (27 percent) of Ukraine ' s hydrocarbons resources are concentrated on the large (5-7 kilometers) depth. By the beginning of 2005, 25 per cent were mined and 37 percent of the original resources were produced. Therefore, the level of resource implementation is 37 percent. The remaining unexplored resources, which are the base for the development of geological exploration and oil and gas production in the following years, are 5468 million tons of conditional fuel.

According to the optimal development of geological exploration work on Ukraine, it is planned to increase by 2010 almost 167.2 million tons of conditioned fuel both at the expense of the existing facility fund and by the development of new enhanced facilities. Quality.

In the Eastern Region, to ensure the growth of intelligence reserves in full and the creation of a reliable reserve for further work is to prepare 270 new facilities with a total area of 4340 square kilometers and discover 290 new objects.

In the Western Region to ensure the growth of reserves and the creation of a reliable reserve for further work, the search and geophysical work of 30 objects is to be discovered and 25 facilities with a total area of 370 square kilometers. A further 10 facilities are planned to be discovered and 5 to prepare for the geologist's view.

In the South Region, it is expected to detect 12 and prepare 10 new facilities with a total area of 130 square kilometers.

Within the exclusive (maritime) economic zone of the Black Sea and Azov seas, the optimal option is expected to detect 73 and prepare 55 new highly promising sites with a total area of 1,580 square kilometers. This will allow the rational placement of planned amounts of search and reconnaissance drilling, and will create reliable prerequisites for further development of the geological survey.

The main task of this direction is the growth of reserves: free gas-145.9 billion cubic meters and oil-21.30 million tons.


If it is believed that Ukraine consumes mainly imported oil and gas resources and has limited consumption of other energy, further reduction of coal production becomes dangerous. The increase in carbon production requires significant amounts of funding.

The volume of coal mined in Ukraine is constantly decreasing-from 218 million tons in 1976 to 80 million tons in 2005 (by 63 percent).

The main tasks of this are:

The reexploration of deposits developed to continue the life of exploitation and reconstruction of active enterprises;

Conducting search and evaluation work and exploration of the most promising areas and deposits of coal;

The completion of a detailed exploration of Elizabeth and Krynychuvate.

Conducting a preliminary exploration of the Melchivskaya region of the Sula-Udaya deposit;

Conduct search works on separate areas of the Sula-Uyaya deposits and the Alexandria Complex;

Conducting a detailed exploration of the Melchiv region of Sula-Udaya oblast;

Conducting a preliminary exploration of Gaivo-Veselisk deposit and the Senchinese and Dubrovsk section of the Sula-Udaya field.

Coal mine methane

Methane is an explosion-and an ejected substance that prevents coal mining, but is also a valuable utility. Each year, the coal mines of Donbass are thrown into the atmosphere above 2.7 billion cubic meters of methane, and its usage is only 4-5 percent. The experience of the United States suggests that the removal of methane as a companion of a useful fossil can reach 70 to 80 percent.

The main tasks of this are:

To develop methods of study and assessment of methane reserves;

Implementation of efficient technologies and technical means for exploration and extraction of methane from coal deposits;

In 2010, the proof of methane production amounted to 8 billion cubic meters.

The Burning Shale

The previous reconnaissance of Bovtysky was carried out between 1964 and 1970. Now, the intelligence grid of wells does not meet the intelligence requirements for establishing the geological structure and reserves of the field. Analysis of the mining and geological conditions of the field showed a sharp variability in the power of the posters of the combustible shale.

The main tasks of this are:

In 2006-2008 the career field, which has the best mining and technical indicators on exploitation in an open manner;

He was an intelligence officer in 2007-2010 career field No. 4.


The share of atomic energy from total electricity consumption (as of 1998) was: in Lithuania-77.21 per cent, in France-75,77, in Belgium-55.1, in Ukraine-45.42, in Japan-35.86, in Germany-28.29, in the United States-18.69 per cent.

Five Ukrainian nuclear reactors operate 14 reactors, which currently produce about 50 percent of Ukraine's total electricity.

The satisfaction of the needs of the raw energy for nuclear power is 30 per cent achieved by the development of the currently active deposits-Vatutinsky, Central and Mishurian, and the introduction of the Novokotkotannian deposit.

State of uranium mineral and raw materials. It is based on the large deposits of uranium deposits. However, the uranium ore of this type is poor for quality. The product of uranium due to its relatively high cost ($40-80 per kilogram) cannot compete in the global market.

Second place for its industrial importance is on the paleogene-sandy-sandy deposits of the Paleogene. Part of the fields-Devladivskaya in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, Bratske in Mykolaiv Oblast-is almost designed by using the method of acidic underground removal. Although the individual deposits of this type are small in stock, their common resources are significant. Today, the exploitation of these deposits has been halted mainly due to environmental issues. However, in the world practice, the co-pre-oxygen removal that does not create environmental problems is used.

The main tasks of this are:

Build-up and improvement of the structure of industrial reserves at the Novokostänkotanni-Document Mining Complex, which is projected, conducted a detailed drilling exploration of the Documentayevsky deposit with the completion of it in 2007 and the apation of these The State Commission on the reserves of mineral resources of Ukraine;

Exploration and preparation for the industrial development of Krypchansk and Novogouryevsky deposits in the pyrotic sediments of a paleogene for their development by means of underground removal using carbonate-soda removal, as well as the previous Testing the oxygen-soda pattern on the Safon Field with the Eastern Mining and Enrichment Plant;

Searches for rich uranium facilities in the north-eastern part of the Kirovohrad block, including the Kazakkiv-Zhovtovodinsky mine;

Searches for rich amenities in the structures of the discrepancy on the northwest slope of the Ukrainian Shield;

Mass searches for radioactive raw materials that accompany the entire complex of geologists and other works related to the study of the interior.

2. Metalics are useful

Black Metal

Iron ore

There are 53 iron ore deposits in Ukraine, of which 30 are in operation (58.6 per cent of the reserves). Rich iron ore and quartzite iron are extracted in the fields of Krivoy Rog, Kremenchutsk and Bilostar iron basins, and by 1992 the Kerch basin's tobacco ore was also used.

The reserves are estimated to be 25.9 billion tonnes-about 6 percent of the world's reserves and 29.9 percent of the CIS countries ' reserves.

As a result of the closure of the nervous career, the Krivbasi mines complex engineering and environmental issues related to the harmful effects of groundwater. It is not only economic and ecological, but also an important social problem: the population of the nearly millionth city of Kryvyi Rig is occupied primarily in works related to the mining and processing of iron ore.

The main tasks of this are:

Reconnaissance and transfer in the industrial development of new deposits mainly of oxidized quartzites (Inguletsk-as an orphaned base of the combination of oxidized ruds) and to examine the flanks of deposits developed;

Study of the hydrogeological conditions of the southern part of the Kryvbas to take effective measures in the fight against watercourses;

The study of narrow zones of grassland metasomatosis on iron ore deposits, which may be the source of the extraction of scandium, vanadium or rare lands;

Preparation of small deposits of high quality flammable magnetite quartzites in Kryvbas (Western bands, Orthodox Magnetic Anomalies) and Priazoja (perhaps with the participation of foreign investors).

Manganese ore

According to the volume of exploration and extraction of manganese ore, Ukraine ranks first in the CIS (75 per cent reserves and 86 percent of mining) and the leading in the world. The reserves of these ores and their careers are up to 40 years. Intelligence and training for the exploration of the manganese ore of Ukraine (The Nicopal Basin and Tokmak Basin) account for 2.26 billion tonnes with an average margin of manganese at a rate of 23.1 per cent. More affluent (28.6 per cent of manganese) and readily-enriched oxide ore make up only a fraction of them (15.2 per cent)-0.33 billion tons, poorer (21.9 per cent manganese) and heavy-enriched carbonate ruds are dominated by the remainder of the reserves (77.3 per cent) -1.76 billion tons.

The existing structure of the reserves and technology of enrichment of manganese ore cannot satisfy the growing needs of black metallurgy in the higher varieties of manganese concentrations, above the low-phosphoric. It is also important to provide chemical industry with so-called peroxide high quality concentrations previously produced from Georgia. Addressing these relevant problems will be the aim of preparing for the industrial development of ore deposits, which includes a large proportion of oxygenated and mixed carbonate, located near the Nicopolis Basin, as well as technological developments. Study on the study of efficient enrichment technologies for carbonate ores.

The main tasks of this are:

The exploration of the promising on the oxides of individual areas of the fields;

Conducting a geologist economic revaluation of manganese deposits with regard to market economy conditions;

Predicting the estimated resource potential of the mine districts of Greater-Tokmaki and Feodorovsk deposits;

The allocation of promising areas of manganese ore deposits in the Meshuiti Ingul-Ingutles;

Predicting estimation of the industrial reserves of the Greater-Tokmaki and Feodorovsk deposits;

The allocation of promising areas of industrial manganese ore in the Meshuiti Ingul-Ingutles;

Detection of new mine deposits of manganese ore within the eastern and western flank of the Nicopolis lineage;

Hydrogeological modes of observation on the territory of the Nicopolis Basin;

Solving geoecological problems in the territory of the Vasilkivsky District of the Zaporizya region in the Tavrian mining-enrichment plant.

Chromium ore

There is no need for the industrial development of chrome ore deposits in Ukraine. The potential resource capabilities of these ruds are related to the chromytic hyperbasite arrays in Popozhzhi, where the Capitanic's deposit is already pre-estimated. His exploitation would allow in part to provide the domestic needs of its own chromium and chrome-nickel raw materials.

The main tasks of this are:

Capitanic intelligence.

Thematic work on the analysis and interpretation of geologic geophysical information and estimates of the promising resources of chromites;

Search and evaluation work on the first-order sites of the Capitaniv mine field and the exploration of the two best of them after the industrial significance of the Capitansky field.

In the process of these works, the soulmate minerals-gold, platinum group metals, bauxite, and vermiculite.

Colored and Flying Metals


Potential internal resources of aluminium raw materials (iron ore boating of the High-copy deposits in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, non-feline ore in Priazovya, Zakarpathian alonites, kaolin and others) according to preliminary techno-economic calculations competitive compared to imported raw materials and cannot be cost-effective in domestic enterprises by operating technology.

For the final definition of the Industrial Value of the High-term deposits, the total resources estimated to be 72 million tons, and the exploration reserves-17 million tons, need to make a special feasibility study with the consideration of all possible options The use of raw materials that contains clay.

As a potential aluminium raw material can be considered to be a Carpathian alonite under the terms of their complex use. There are two large deposits on the state balance-Bigana and Beregivka with the exploration reserves of alunite ore according to 290.3 million tons and 51.4 million tonnes, in addition to the area of the Berehiv mine field. Alunite deposits and rudimentary, associated with secondary quartites.

The main tasks of this are:

Reconnaissance of Bigana's field of complex alunite-barit-gold-polymetallic ores;

Conducting works on the search for bauxite in Transnistria;

Geological survey and assessment of industrial reserves of high-iron bauxite ore.


Ukraine's forecast for 2006-2010 will be 159.3 and 171.5 thousand. Tons. Today Ukraine does not have the intelligence reserves of copper ore, but the prospects of finding them are rather significant. They are related to the self-born copper mineralization in the trageway Formation of the Volyn Mine District, where it has already been identified as the most promising Raphalovski and Girna runes.

The main tasks of this are:

Concentrating on the geological survey on the self-type copper in the formation of a formation in the territory of Volyn mine district;

Conduct search and search and evaluation works on the Rafalovsky and Girnitsky mine nodes in preparation of prospective labor (deposits) before the intelligence service;

Exploration of one of the best discovered deposits and preparing it for industrial development with orientable reserves of 1 million tons of copper;

Conduct search and reconstruction and search and evaluation works on the prospective Workers of Donbass within the southwestern wing of Bakhmut kbolovini;

The geoeconomic assessment of the promising on the copper mine in the Volyn mine area and the prospects of the Workers of Donbass, at the southwestern wing of Bakhmut.

Lead and zinc

The needs of Ukraine in lead and zinc in the near-term (2010) will be: zinc-up to 66,000. The lead is up to 14 tons. Tons.

Lead-zinc ore, high quality, are known in two regions of Ukraine: in Transcarpathia and in the south-eastern part of the Dnipro-Donetsk region. The prospect of lead and zinc is associated with the gold-polymetallic deposits of Zakarpattia. However, the exploitation of the Musiivsk gold-polymetallic deposit can provide the needs of the country only in part.

The most promising objects are considered the Bigana complex alunite baryt, a polymetallic deposit in Zakarpatti and Biłyovsk in Kharkiv Oblast.

Within the Bigana region of the complex alunite-the barite-polymetallic ores are counted 381.1 thousand. A zinc and a thousand tons of zinc. Tons of lead. A technological scheme of enrichment has been developed. Polymetallic ores are installed.

Within the White House there is a mine block with a shallow (up to 500 m) rudder for a possible pioneer development. Within this block, pre-scout C categories 2 That account for 618 thousand. It is estimated that tons of zinc and 265 thousand tons Tons of lead.

The main tasks of this are:

Performing intelligence on the Bigana and Belayiv fields;

Conducting search and evaluation works on Novi-Customs Workers;

Conduct search and evaluation works on the flanks of the White House for the expansion of the raw base of future mining and enrichment plant.

Nickel and cobalt

Ukraine's annual economic needs will increase from five thousand years. In 2001, it was estimated to be about 6.6 percent. Tons of tons in 2010.

Cobalt in Ukraine, as in most countries of the world, does not create independent deposits, but is contained in the nickel ore and the products of their recycling (feronicel-from silicates; nickel concentrate-with sulfide ore).

The deposits of both metals in the territory of Ukraine are represented by silicata ore of the weathering of hyperbastions and concentrated in two regions: the Middle East (Kirovohrad region) and the Middle Transniprovya (Dnipropetrovsk region).

The prospects of Ukraine's sulfide nickel are limited, but some preconditions for the detection of industrial deposits of sulfide nickel are (the Ukrainian Shield of Krasnohibit-Zhytomyr and Azov).

The remaining active nickel in the Middle East is over 60,000. A nickel plant has been provided with an orphan for 9 to 10 years.

In the area of the designated plant there are several new deposits and promising areas with common promising resources of 52 thousand hectares. Tons.

The main tasks of this are:

carrying out the exploration of the most promising Western and North-linen areas and the continuing search and search and evaluation works on promising sites for the discovery of new fields near Pobuzky nickel Plant

Evaluation of technological properties of nickel-sulfide ore with the goal of expanding the production of pheronicel production at the Pobuz nickel plant;

Conducting additional technological tests on the Prudinian field of copper-nickel sulfide ore;

The study of hyperbastic arrays in the process of geologist works.


Ukraine has no reconnaissance of molybdenum deposits, and all the need is provided for supplies from the CIS countries. However, within the Ukrainian Shield there are promising areas and even specific promising rudimentary, prepared for exploration and further development. This, primarily the Verbinsk and Ustyniv rushyvyva in the north-western part of the Ukrainian Shield and East Sergiivsk, was in the middle of the Transnistria.

In recent years, the East Azov Bloc of the Ukrainian Shield in subvolcanic structures has been found to be rudimentary to molybdenum, wolfram, bismuth, lead, silver and other metals. The detection of a new promising type of tungsten-molybdenum convenience significantly increases the prospects of Ukraine on the discovery of its own industrial deposits of tungsten and molybdenum.

The main tasks of this are:

on the north-west of the Ukrainian Shield in the Ustonian ore field-a continuation of search and evaluation works on the prospective rudias-Ustnivnivsky, High and others and intelligence of the Verbinsk deposit to prepare it for industrial use. Development;

At the East Sergiivsk Rudolf, the completion of a complex of drilling, technological research, to conduct a forecast geologist and economic assessment of the rudimentary and feasibility of the feasibility of mining-drilling intelligence in parallel with intelligence Sergievsk gold mine (its mining developments);

(sections) of the Eastern Conquest is to conduct search works for the detection of new and window exploration of discovered objects, and since 2007-the complex of evaluation works to determine their industrial importance.

Tin, tungsten and titanium


The needs of Ukraine in the tin are 600-800 tons per year.

The prospects for the discovery of industrial tin deposits are associated with the manual structures of the Sushsyn-Perjian zone. Among them are Carières, West, Girnice and others.

The main tasks of this are:

Conducting a complex of drilling, mineral-petrographic and technological research on the fields;

Conducting geologist economic assessment and determining the feasibility of intelligence in the West and Gyrnithas.


The need for Ukraine in tungsten products to the nearest prospect is 435-480 tons.

In recent years, the Eastern Republic has defined promising manifestations of tungsten.

The main tasks of this are:

Conduct search works by lithogeochemical methods with a passing of surface mining developments and wells with a complex of geophysical research.


In Ukraine, the powerful mineral-raw base of titanium is 40 deposits, of which 12 are detailed, and an industrial mining operation began.

Extracts of titanium (ilmenite) concentrations carry the Irshansky mining-enrichment plant in Zhytomyr region and Vilnius state mining and metallurgical plant in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast. Their combined power accounts for nearly 20 percent of the world 's issue of ilmenite concentrations and can fully provide Ukraine' s needs and beneficial exports.

The restocked reserves of titanium ore both combine to provide a distant perspective. However, the problem is the rud with fresh ilmenite, from which high quality and competitive pigments are available for the technology of the active sulfuric acid production in Suman and in Crimea. The reserves of such ore in Ukraine are related, mainly with the great Strumurban indigenous lineage prepared for industrial development, and smaller than the size of the Feodorovny deposit, whose intelligence is complete. The exploitation of these deposits will simultaneously produce a scarce apatite concentrate, as well as the rare lands in the Apatite concentration, vanadium and scandium-in Ilmenith.

However, for the exploitation of these deposits, the construction of new mines and enrichment plants requires considerable investment and time.

The main tasks of this are:

Preparation for the industrial development of the Trotternetic discharge of the ilmenite;

Exploration and preparation for industrial development of the Tarasivskoy scattered field of complex circadian-titanium ore in the Kyiv region;

The geological survey and assessment of industrial exploration of Strumurban fields for high quality ilmenite and apatite concentrations.

Along with titanium, removed from the ilmenite and ruthenium concentrations, the removal of the vanadium was also assumed. The technology of its removal has long been developed, but the industry has yet to be implemented.

Rare and rare earth metals


Ukraine has significant reserves and promising lithium resources. The target needs of the lithium carbonate are 100-200 tons. It is expected to increase the need for a petalytove concentration for the production of special glass and special pottery-up to a few tens of thousands. Tons.

In 1994, the Ministry of Industry of Ukraine was invited to prepare for the industrial development of Shevchenko's lineage in Zaporozhye region. A comparative technical-economic reasoning of the Polothiv field of lithium in the Kirovohrad region was conducted. According to economic indicators, these two deposits deserve industrial exploration, but by most criteria, the Polotsk deposit has a number of advantages.

The exploration of the Polochiv deposits of petalite ore could not only provide the need for the litias of various industries, but also to increase its export potential.

The main tasks of this are:

Detection of industrial categories of Polothiv deposits and Shevchenko mine field;

Conducting reconnaissance and training for industrial development.

Tantalum and Niobium

Ukraine owns significant resources of tantalum and niobium in the north-western part of the Ukrainian Shield, within the Kirovohrad bloc and in Priazoja. The most heavily studied Priazovya objects, which have significant resources and supplies, and favorable geological and hydrogeological conditions for development. Due to the integrated use of these reserves (the extraction of zirconia, non-feline, field-shovel) the deposit may be cost-effective.

The most advanced study was the Masurian area, which is located in the Donetsk region near the Donetsk chemical-metallurgical plant. Intelligence is being conducted to prepare the field for industrial development, gain in the industrial reserves of the C category. 1 .

Significant resource potential has insufficient weathering of the weathering cortex in the Souten-Perzanian zone, where there are rare land, tantalum, and other metals combined with niobium.

Small in size, but with high tantalum content (0.10-0.15 per cent), open to the rudimentary area within the Gunnji-Zvenurban zone (Mostowe, Kopanki, Vrye, and others).

The main tasks of this are:

Detection of industrial categories under the conditions of integrated development of Masurian deposits;

Conduct search and search and evaluation works in the Sushana-Pergena zone to determine the industrial value of the core of weathering with a liquid-metered complex convenience;

Estimation of the forecast resources of the Gunnji-Zveniurban zone and detection of category C reserves 2 .

Rare Lands and Itrius

Fifteen lanthanides and close to them are a group of rare lands, or rare earth metals. The demand for these metals is constantly increasing. It is estimated that Ukraine's rare land needs are 60 tonnes in 2006 and 115 tonnes in 2010.

In the Priazov part of the Ukrainian Shield, the Azov field of rare land is studied. According to the results of the search and evaluation works, preliminary feasibility studies were made.

The main tasks of this are:

Completion of search and evaluation work and preparation for the research and industrial exploitation of the large Azov field of circonium land ore;

An assessment of the rare earth rudder in the weathering of the Sushana-Perjian zone in the north-west of the Ukrainian Shield.

Zirconium and Gafna

Circadian and Hafna have close physical-chemical properties (firepower, inertia, etc.). Gaffine does not have its own minerals, but is a permanent home in the minerals of the zircon with the average ratio of 1:50 oxides.

The industry's own needs of Ukraine's industry in 1998 accounted for 90 tons of zirconia during production of 180 tons. In 2006-2010 a total of 360 tonnes of zirconia production was projected.

Precious metals and diamonds

Gold and Silver

There are three gold provinces: Carpathians, Donbass and Ukrainian Shield.

Carpati is one of the most studied provinces. Here the reserves of gold reserves in the number of nearly 55 tons-the Mužievsk deposit and the Saulak deposit.

Mužievskaya gold-polymetallic deposits were introduced in industrial development in 1999. Directly to the Musiivsk field is the Berehiv gold polymetallic deposit which has a similar structure. Within the single mining output of the Musiivsk mine field already at the first stage can be brought to the reserves of up to 80-100 tons of gold, 1,000 tons of silver and about 2.5 million tons of lead and zinc.

The Sauliak deposit is pre-exploration of two curtain-based boxes, with a clear surface. It has been found and has been discovered by three mines. Predicted to get resource category resources 1 35 tons and categories R 2 -65 tons.

According to preliminary estimates of specialists, the common resources of the Carpathian Province are determined: gold-400 tonnes, silver-5.5 thousand. In 2015, the Russian oil production was estimated to be 2.7 million tons.

The golden age of Donbass has been studied for a long time, but due to lack of soil research, there is no one-digit estimate. The total estimated resources of Donbas are estimated at 400 tonnes of gold. Here it is discovered small in the reserves of the Bobrikivka deposits of gold-sulfide ore.

The main gold-made province of Ukraine is the Ukrainian Shield, which is a total of 2400 tonnes of gold. The most perfect is about six fields: Mayan, Klinzewski, Jur'ovsk, Sergiovsk, Balka Gold, and Balka Shirok. The resources estimated at their limits are over 620 tons of gold.

The main tasks of this are:

Intensification of geological exploration works in Transcarpathi for reliable provision of the Musiivsk state gold-polymetallic combination of industrial categories of its own gold ore and increase in the area's promising resources and preparation for The exploitation of the Bobrykivka field in the Donbass

Intensification of search, search and evaluation works in Donbas for the study of the Therigenand carbonate thicknesses of Southern Donbass, promising on rich ore types of Carlin;

The continuation of the search and search and evaluation works on the Ukrainian Shield in the prospective structures of the well-known mine fields and zones (Verchivsevo, Surska and Chornomlic green stone structures of the Middle Transniprovye, Savran-Kadudinsk, The Kürst-Jur'iv runes in the gneyside thicknesses) and potential ore fields of other areas;

Conduct search and search and evaluation works on the perspective areas of the Berehiv and Vishkov mine fields, as well as on the sites and sites of the Rahiv mine district, the exploration of the Berehiv deposit, as well as the flanks of the Musiivsky deposit; Study of the choruses of the Donbass, promising on the detection of the type of Kokpatas, Bakirchik, Murun-Tau;

-Clintons and Jur'hiv in Kirovohrad Oblast;

-The Maya in the Odessa region, with the aim of creating a gold mining complex in Ukraine;

Expanding the geological study of gold deposits in Transcarpathia:

-completion of the exploration of the Musiivsky's deposit and the Saulak deposit;

-Growth of gold reserves on the main part of the Berehiv deposit with a companion of silver, lead and zinc;

the discovery of new deposits within the perspective structures of the Ukrainian Shield.


The need to assess Ukraine's promising geological formations on the available metals of the platinum group is caused by the constant expansion of their use in many fields of science and technology.

Currently, there is no reconnaissance of platinum group metals in Ukraine. There are also unknown areas for the discovery of deposits, although there are quite high general rates of platinum in various geological formations.

The main tasks of this are:

Creating its own laboratory base and, since 2006, the organization of mass-focused search engines of the platinum group in the process of performing all types of geological exploration.

Conducting targeted search works on the detection of platinum group metals in local areas and objects with an assessment of their perspective;

Exploration of one of the alloy fields of a platinum group or by performing a geologist economic assessment by high industrial categories as a companion component of the presence of platinum group metals in a complex field.


Within the territory of Ukraine there are three areas of the kimberlite and lampious magmatism-the indigenous sources of diamonds-the northern Volyno-Podilsk plate, the central part of the Ukrainian Shield and the Priazovsky Massif and its articulated zone. Donbass.

According to the prospects of the detection of industrial diamonds, Kuhotsko-Serhiv area is the leading place. It was near the village of Kuchot Vol in 1975, the first kimberlite manifestation was discovered in Ukraine.

In the central part of the Ukrainian Shield in recent years, near the city of Kirovohrad on the sites of Lelekivka and Szczorsivskaya were installed small bodies of kimberlite and lampids of daikoshaped form. There were no purpose-built searches on diamonds in the area.

There are 7 kimberlite bodies found in the constellation, manifestations of lampious magma, a large number of arrays of ultra-major grassland and carbonate formations, and also known numerous finds of diamonds and their moons in secondary collectors, represented by the heterogeneous (from the Carboniferous to the Quaternary Period) by the terienic deposits.

In addition to the established areas, it is the prospect of detecting industrial diamonds by complex geo-geophysical data and in other areas, but specialized diamond search works need to attract large investments.

Due to this, large-scale search works on diamonds within the entire territory of Ukraine today are complicated.

The main tasks of this are:

Detection by complex methods of diamond fruit;

The concentration of the main volumes of search works on the already known sites, primarily within the Eastern Priazovya, the Volno-Podilsk Plate, the northwestern and central parts of the Ukrainian Shield.

Non-metallic mineral deposits

The main areas of the development of geological exploration work will be aimed at ensuring the active mining enterprises with such types of mineral raw materials:

Non-metallic-for metallurgy;


For mining and agro-industrial complexes;

Other non-destructive raw materials.

Non-metallic metallurgy

For more than a century the history of Ukrainian metallurgy has created a powerful industry with mining and initial processing of non-metallic raw materials. Of all the species of this raw materials (limestone, dolomites, quartzites, flurry clay, land benches) Ukraine by the last time fully provided the needs and needs of the metallurgy of Russia, Georgia, in part-Poland, Slovakia. But already there are acute problems, due to the overall progress of the metallurgy and the significant increase in requirements for the quality of non-metallic raw materials. Some types of non-metallic raw materials (magneite, plaster, grasslands) for the metallurgical sector of Ukraine are imported.

The main task of this direction is the development of geological survey works aimed at maximizing the functioning of the mineral resources of their own mineral raw materials.


The main consumers of the plastic shovel are factories producing ferroalloys and welding flashes, as well as metallurgical combine, factories of heavy engineering, shipbuilding and aluminum enterprises of Donetsk, Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporozhye and Mykolaiv. areas.

The state reserves of mineral reserves are counted among the two deposits of the Pakhta-Bakhtin deposit in Pridnistrovyi, which account for 18 million tons, and Pokrovo-Kiryevka in Priazovya and two deposits with the contents of the satellite to the apathy. " Новоское-Ново-Ново All four deposits are not exploited due to lack of significant capital contributions to their development.

Bakhtinsky's field of fluorite in the Transnistria was trained and prepared for research and industrial exploitation.

The main tasks of this are:

Conduct search and evaluation works within the central section of the Sushana-Perjian zone for preparation of special liquid-fluorite-fluorized reserves;

Conducting research and industrial extraction of a flat shovel on the flanks of the Bakhtin deposit;

Preparation for the introduction of a Bakhtinsky mining-enrichment plant for obtaining its own fluorite and poly-vegetable concentrate;

Preparations for the Industrial Development of the Central Field of the Sushshield-Pergence Zone;

Assessment of the reserves of the deposits of the melting coat of Pokrovo-Kiriyevsky in Priazovya and the fields of the satellite in Apatita-Strmyurban and Novopoltavsky;

Conducting search and evaluation and reconnaissance works on the flank of the Bahtian Field with further approval of the reserves of a flat-spath by the State Commission on mineral reserves.

Floral limestone and dolomites

The reserves of floral raw materials are fully secured, but the vast majority of these reserves are only suitable for the outdated domain-Marthenian steel production. Convertible and electro-plasma steel production requires the same raw material, but high quality (by chemical composition and mechanical strength).

The state reserves of the reserves are estimated to be of 14 fluous limestone deposits, the total reserves of which are 2.5 billion tons; in the contours of the active careers-950 million tons. There are also eight dolomites on the state balance, of which three are being developed.

However, in large reserves, the country has a need for high quality converters, with a total volume of 400 million tons, but industrial output is only 36 million tonnes.

The problem of the raw database remains a shortage of intelligence reserves. The only one in the country is the Stiles (Donbass), which is now closed due to hydrogeological problems.
