About future opportunities of the private-public partnership development in the coal sector of Russia

The article attempts to analyze the future opportunities of the privatepublic partnership development in the coal sector. For this purpose, an analytical research has been performed into the current state of the coal sector in the world in general, and in Russia in particular. Analytical research was undertaken into types, quantity and costs of self-sustained infrastructure projects implemented by legal entities, which financial assets are supported by the National Wealth Fund on a repayable basis. Based on the analysis results some top-priority areas were identified, where such projects were implemented, and most promising coal deposits and large investment projects of the coal sector development based on the mechanisms of private-public partnership were selected.

Main research and methodological principles of the decision tree formation within the framework of a computer-aided mine planning and design system

The article actualizes an opportunity of knowledge formalization and structuring in mining engineering system simulation. The authors propose a decision-tree fragment for the selection and substantiation of cost-effective coal deposit access and development methods and plans in computer-aided planning and design. This fragment works correctly in conditions of fuzzy or incomplete data on a modeling object.
