Chapter 2. Main requirements to mountain branches

19. Mountain branch is provided to the subsoil user on all square and depth of the approved inventories transferred to industrial development under the act of transfer acceptance of the field to industrial development.

This requirement extends also to the complex fields provided by several types jointly of the lying minerals.

20. On development of the giant field of minerals mountain branches in exceptional cases can be provided to two or several subsoil users having licenses for right to use by certain sites of this field.

21. In need of development of the fields of different types of the minerals lying on one square, mountain branches are provided separately for development of each field. In this case, and also in case of development of the giant field of minerals by several subsoil users the sequence of working off of fields or their parts and agreement of mining operations shall provide the most complete, complex and economically reasonable extraction from subsoil of explored reserves, fulfillment of requirements of the legislation on subsoil and safe operation.

In case of development of the oil and gas horizons on one platform by two subsoil users two independent mountain branches according to the procedure, determined by this Provision shall be drawn up.

22. Borders of mountain branch for development of the fields of solid minerals are determined by contours of the approved GKZ of inventories or their parts, including categories C, in the amounts resolved GKZ for designing taking into account zones of displacement of rock formation or rating of pit walls.

On oil and gas fields of border of mountain branch are established on contour of the approved GKZ of inventories of categories A+B+C1, separately for each deposit. For the fields finished with investigation with recoverable oil reserves to 1 million tons and gas to 3 billion CBM of border of mountain branch can be established on contours of inventories of categories A+B+C1 and C 2, of the accepted GKZ.

For fields which development is provided using edge water flooding borders of mountain branch are established on perimeter of arrangement of zakonturny delivery wells.

It is forbidden to leave outside mountain branch the sites of the field, ore bodies, veins and deposits unsuitable for independent development.

23. Prirezka for the purpose of involvement in development of the sites of the field located outside mountain withdrawal of operating plant is drawn up as new mountain branch according to the procedure, determined by this Provision.

24. Mountain branches for the coal fields put by suite of layers and ore bodies are drawn up on all layers and ore bodies of deposit. Provision of mountain branch on separate formations and ore bodies of deposit is allowed by way of exception if dredging of these inventories does not exert adverse effect on other layers and ore bodies or does not complicate their development further and will not lead to additional losses of mineral raw material in subsoil.

25. Provision of mountain branches for coal production within the coal fields developed by method of underground gasification, and also provision of the mountain branches for underground gasification within the coalfield developed by open or underground method is allowed only on special projects and in the presence of the expert opinion on safety of mining operations around underground gasification and about lack of adverse effect of gasification on the neighboring mineral deposits.

26. Mountain branches for development of the fields of minerals can be termless and urgent.

In cases of urgent use mountain branches are provided for the term provided by the license, and for oil and gas fields - for the term of no more than 5 years. If necessary the validity of mountain branch can be extended. In case of prolongation of effective period of mountain branch only the act of mountain branch and text on topographical plans are renewed.
