Authors consider possible development ways of the Russia coal industry. Researchers recognize that the world economic crisis had an essential negative impact on the coal industry in general. Research relevance consists in resource analysis of the East Donbass coal basin, whose social and economic situation represents a particular interest in connection with a political situation in the Ukraine border regions, in the Donetsk national republic. East Donbass (160 billion t) is in the west of the Rostov region. Basin coals, as well as in the main Donbass have high quality. The predominant energy, anthracite coal with a high calorific value, there are almost no coking coal. The small power of layers (the majority from several centimeters to 1 m), a deep water of development (on average 350 m, the greatest - over 1000 m) do an expensive coal rather. The coal industry state and development are defined by the following factors: size of mineral reserves; coal quality; mining-and-geological conditions; mine fund; scientific-technical progress; working conditions; economic factors.
