The Russian Far East possesses significant reserves of minerals. Mineral resources are rich in species diversity. The development of resources is faced with several problems, such as the depletion of active proven reserves in the exploited fields; high costs of transporting raw materials and finished products to processing sites or end-user markets; lack of availability of deposits; significant financial investments in the construction of new transport routes, etc. This means a transition from the extraction of raw materials to obtaining a product with a high stage of processing and the construction of transport routes. In this article, the authors examined the structure of investments in fixed assets by type of economic activity in the subjects of the Far Eastern Federal District. The values of the volumes of reserves and production of major minerals (for 2018) are presented, and resources are allocated based on which it is necessary to develop processing industries in the region. A comparison is made of the transport accessibility of options for locating a metallurgical plant in the Far East. The conclusion about the need for state support of resource projects and the development of measures to improve the conditions for investment has been substantiated.
