Dear Authors and Readers of our Journal,

This year saw a lot of remarkable developments in the Russian mineral and industrial sector, among which many were truly life-changing.

I believe that one of them is the shift in thinking and strategic planning towards complete life cycle chains in mining and processing of minerals. At the same time, I should say that this is not a forced change due to restrictions imposed by unfriendly countries, but a global trend.

All the developed countries and their associations implement programs of self-dependence on supply of critical minerals and technologies to process them into materials with unique properties, which are designed and created at the quantum and nuclear levels. The future of civilization is evolving in this realm, the quality of life is shaped for the generations to come, and national sovereignties are put to the test.

Understanding the significance of this topic and being aware of the importance of their mission, the Russian miners have made consolidation of the mineral industry, which is required both to overcome the effects of sanctions and to ensure the scientific and technological sovereignty of the Russian Federation, the main topic of their GORPROMEXPO-2022 Forum. It is essential to understand that consolidation is not limited to centralization of management. Even the concept of a federal authority with the functionality and ideology adequate to the task has not yet been defined. This is rather an assembly of a single organism from the small pieces, which the industry has been fragmented into by the excessive use of exports and imports. Despite the effective representation of the Forum's participants and the extensive discussion of a wide range of topics, many questions still have to be answered.

Валерий Афонасьевич Язев, Президент НП «Горнопромышленники России», Председатель Российского национального комитета Мирового нефтяного совета, главный редактор журнала «Горная Промышленность»The work we have begun will continue on the pages of our Journal and on our electronic platforms.

We invite everyone who has ideas, who works in exploration and mining, who develops technologies to separate, process and recycle minerals, who assesses the market of new materials and determines the needs in minerals.

We are with those who are raising up new generations of professionals and those who are helping the teachers to meet the demands of tomorrow.

We count on participation of those who develop the state strategies and pass laws. I am sure that our Journal will remain a consolidation platform for the industry, a testing ground for new ideas and a tribune for professionals.

I wish you a constructive and fruitful work in the coming year!
