Abstract


While relatively small in size, the Kaliningrad region has abundant deposits of minerals, many of which are actively exploited (amber, oil, peat, building materials, mineral waters and muds). There are, however, other mineral resources that can be developed here, and some are already being prepared for exploitation (rock salt, potassium and magnesium salts). But any extraction of minerals in a small, economically developed area with unique natural resources requires an assessment of potential risks to the environment. Implementing mine reclamation measures is mandatory. No new fields can be developed without an approval from the community of citizens obtained during public hearings.
