For 80 years of geological exploration in the Arkhangelsk region, deposits of the following minerals have been discovered and explored: bauxites, diamonds, polymetals, fresh and mineral groundwater, carbonates for pulp-and-paper industry and cement production, gypsum, building stone (basalts, granite gneiss), building sand, sand-and-gravel materials, brick-earth, basalts for production of mineral rock wool, iodide water, peat, and others.

The North Onega bauxite formation contains 18% of all the Russian bauxite reserves. The Arkhangelsk region takes the second place in the country after Yakutia in terms of registered diamond stocks which account for nearly 20% of all the Russian diamond reserves. There are two diamond fields under development that were discovered on the territory of the region: the Lomonosov diamond deposit (license holder is JSC Severalmaz) and the Grib diamond deposit (license holder is JSC Arkhangelskgeoldobycha).


Two diamond deposits, second region after Yakutia rich in registered diamond reserves

In 2001 Pavlovskoye silver-containing lead-zinc ore field was discovered on the Novaya Zemlya Archipelago. The production is planned to start in 2018. The deposit is not only in the top 5 similar deposits in Russia, but it also has a number of important advantages:

• Ore bodies are not deep under the surface
• The geological structure is relatively simple
• The ore is characterized by good preparation characteristics
• Cheap logistics (the largest European concentrate treatment factories are in the vicinity)

The State Register of Reserves also has on the books limestone stocks from 2 deposits: Shvakinskoye and Ust-Pinezhskoye. At present, mining operations are in progress in the Eastern sector of the Shvakinskoye field (license holder is Shvakinskiye Izvestnyaki ltd.).

The most popular types of all the common commercial mineral resources produced on the territory of the Arkhangelsk region are sand-and-gravel mixes and sand, as well as building stones, used in both industrial and civil construction. Most of the customers are local companies from the Arkhangelsk region.
