General Director of JSC PMGE V. D. Kriukov in the video presentation told about the history of the Expedition, its main achievements and activities in recent years. Special attention was paid in the report to the resource aspect of the works carried out by the JSC PMGE for 55 years. Among the most important achievements of the PMGE, which made a significant contribution to the increase in Russia's resource potential, were the discovery and exploration by geologists of the PMGE of Pavlovsky lead-zinc deposit on Novaya Zemlya (one of the five largest world deposits) and the discovery of the Tomtor giant rare-earth deposit in Northern Yakutia. As for the reserves of basic metals, converted into the dollar equivalent, Pavlovsky deposit alone gives a figure of 62 billion US dollars, which pays off the costs of the Expedition for many decades to come.
