ABSTRACT
Main criteria of complex development of Krivbas iron ore deposits were studied: 1) quantity, quality and concentration of main reserves and related minerals in deposits, 2) mining technical and technological conditions of development, geographical, economic and environmental operating conditions of deposit’s exploration. Largest iron ore deposits of Krivbas were had been evaluated to define commercial significance of associated minerals. They are characterized by high degree of geological, technical and economic study. Main favorable geological and economic conditions of sustainable complex development of deposits are large proven estimated reserves and availability of industrial particularly energy and transport infrastructure. Negative factor for value of associated mineral’s reserves are market of mineral resources, in particular, demand for products of this quality; environmental risks in development of mineral resources, land use and other environmental components.
