At present time, the issue of defining indicators of sustainable development corresponds to the processes of modern economy development such as digitalization, technological convergence. They are going to replace mining from GDP of industrial countries and decease environmental pressure by expanding economy of knowledge. For the first time, the knowledge index was calculated by the World Bank. It should be noted that the World Bank calculated the indices for each individual country. This would allow developing the necessary decisions and government policies to build a knowledge economy. This goal is pursued by the authors of the article, but in relation to the sustainable development of the mining regions of Russia. The article discusses various approaches to assessing the regional knowledge index, and proposes a new methodology for its assessment based on the main determinant of the matrix and its logarithm. Based on the proposed methodology, the knowledge index was evaluated, which shows the conditions for the knowledge economy development in the mining regions of Russia. The rating of the mining regions of Siberian Federal District was built. The main conditions affecting the formation of the knowledge economy in the mining regions of Siberia in the context of their sustainable development are identified.
