The borders of the Tannoulsko-Ulugousky gold-polymetallic minerogenic and Kalbaksky coper-molybdenum ore areas and the Tapsa –Kaakhemsky alluvial gold area were specified. Within the borders of the latter the Terektigsky golden ore hub and Ondumsky ore zone were separated. The first object was issued a passport with the assessment of forecast P1 copper and gold resources - 1.7 mln tons and 33 tons respectively.
