Development of gold-containing nanospers on the shelf of the Сhukot sea

In order to fulfill the tasks for the development of the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation and especially its north-eastern part, which adjoins the North American continent (Chukotka — Alaska), it is necessary to develop the shelf part of the Chukchi Sea, where rocks carrying gold-containing fractions have been washed off over hundreds of thousands of years, and also other useful components. The question is raised about the development of this coast, as the most promising for increasing the gold and foreign exchange reserve. Based on this, a description of the coastal zone of the Chukchi Sea is carried out. The past and present conditions of the territory of Chukotka are given, where in prehistoric times goldbearing deposits were formed with huge gold contents, which, by right, can be attributed to very rich ores. Showing geographic maps. The region is described where gold mining was most actively carried out and which was most closely bordering the shelf part. The technique and technology of soil extraction from the bottom of reservoirs are considered. The optimal equipment for these purposes was selected. His work is described. Additional devices for the maximum extraction of finely dispersed gold, which can be washed off by water flows, are considered. The technology of particle capture is given. A quantitative assessment of gold reserves for a specific region was carried out. The economic efficiency of the development of the shelf and the start of work is determined

Keywords: Chukotka, region, coastal zone, rocks, valuation, gold, shelf, equipment.
