The government of Yakutia abolished the state expertise of geological prospecting

The government of Yakutia has approved a draft amendment to the legislation on mineral resources, which cancels the state expert examination of geological exploration, the press service of the head of the region reports.

The purpose of the amendments to the federal law "On Subsoil" is to remove administrative barriers, reduce the time required to prepare geological exploration projects and start geological exploration, reduce the financial burden on subsoil users, and improve the investment climate in the field of geological exploration of subsoil.

“Today, geological exploration projects are undergoing state expertise for methodological and economic components. We consider this procedure to be redundant, since in connection with the adoption of Federal Law No. 94 and subsequently Federal Law No. 44, the need for an expert examination of geological exploration has lost its relevance. The legislation in the field of procurement provides, within the framework of the tender documentation, to indicate all types of work, the price of the contract, as well as to monitor the targeted use of state budget funds, ”explained Leonid Kovalev, head of the State Committee for Geology and Subsoil Use of Yakutia.

In order to create favorable conditions for expeditious exploration from all sources of their funding, the draft law proposes to exclude requirements for state examination of exploration projects by establishing the procedure for approving a project by a state customer and subsoil user conducting exploration and coordination with the commission established by the authorized management body state fund of mineral resources

Adoption of the draft law should increase the level of investment attractiveness of geological exploration activities carried out at the expense of all sources, which will positively affect reproduction rates and further expansion and qualitative improvement of the mineral resource base.

The draft law on amendments to Articles 23.2 and 36.1 of the Law of the Russian Federation "On Subsoil" has been submitted for consideration to the State Assembly (Il Tumen) of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia).
