THE TASK OF FURTHER STUDY TOMTOR ORE FIELD WITH THE PURPOSE OF INCREASING ITS ATTRACTIVENESS
Consideredсomplex rare-metal Tomtor field is unique in content of niobium, lanthanides, yttrium, scandium and it includes 3 areas: Burannyi, Northern and Southern. By forecast resources it’s one of the largest deposits of the world, but in proven reserves (apart Burannyi area) – small object with unique contents of rare metals. Tomtor field is extremely complex and requires a large amount of research in the technology of the mining and ore processing and marketing of the entire range of possible commercial products. It is recommended to conduct exploration work in Burannyi area and evaluation operations in the areas North and South. It is necessary to conduct the actual assessment of the huge potential of the Tomtor field.

ANALYTICAL APPROACHES TO QUANTITATIVE ESTIMATION OF INDIUM CONTENTS IN VMS AND TIN-SULFIDE ORES FOR REESTIMATION OF DEPOSITS IN SIBERIA AND RUSSIAN FAR EAST
High demand for indium in the world market calls for revisiting the investment prospects of VMS and tin-sulfide deposits in Siberia and Russian Far East. In this respect it is challenging to develop advanced analytical techniques for estimating low and super-low indium contents in the ores and minerals. Reliable indium determination have been performed using X-ray fluorescence analysis with synchrotron radiation (SR-XRF) to a precision of 1-10 ppm indium.
Key words: indium, pyrite-complex ore and tin-sulfide fields, analytical methods of indium determination, Siberia, Russian Far East.
