Читать на русскоя языкеAbstract: The priorities for the development of the industrial complex are to compensate for market risks by dispersing activities into several types of business with the development of new products, the cost of which is reduced due to the use of the existing infrastructure. The prospects of mining enterprises of the North Caucasus in the implementation of production diversification are outlined. The results of substantiating the effectiveness of diversification at various volumes of ore mining in the conditions of the unprofitable Sadonsky lead-zinc plant with a graphical interpretation of economic calculations are given. The results of calculating the efficiency of involving substandard technogenic ores in the development, obtained by comparing alternative options that differ in the size of reserves, are given. An equation for the balance of values is proposed, which establishes the relationship between the volume of production and the completeness of extraction of reserves of deposits during the development of reserves of substandard ores and wastes. To assess the effectiveness of actions during diversification, an integral indicator of flexibility is proposed and the method of marginal analysis is used to reduce the uncertainty of situations. A graph of the relationship between the volume of ore production, economic indicators and the break-even point is shown. Okha-characterized the mineral resource base of diversified enterprises and diversification products for consumption by related industries. It is shown that the diversification of the ore mining complex is still a little used reserve for the development of the economic system of the depressive type.
