General and specialized metallogeny

General and special metallogenic works include studies of geological patterns of ore deposit location, criteria for the relationship of mineralization with a set of geological conditions that affect the mineralization processes, systematization and study of typical features of ore-bearing areas; forecasting new ore-bearing areas. The main methods of metallogenic studies are regional metallogenic analysis, the method of metallogenical analysis of ore-controlling factors, formation analysis, etc.

Support for general and special metallogeny is assigned to the department of metallogeny and geology of mineral deposits and the department of geology of uranium deposits and radioecology.
