- mineral - the natural mineral substance containing in subsoil in strong, liquid and gaseous state (including underground waters and therapeutic muds), suitable for use in production;

- loose minerals - natural mineral educations, including precious metals and gemstones, tin, tungsten, rare metals, ornamental stones and others, formed as a result of physical and chemical aeration of rocks, manifestation and fields of radical minerals;

- prospecting and volnoprinositelsky method - the method of the organization of production of loose minerals performed according to permission of authorized state body individual entrepreneurs and legal entities in subsoil plots with not counted inventories and undelivered on the state stock balance of minerals of the Republic of Tajikistan;

- depletion - decline in quality of minerals in case of production;

- permanent subsoil users - physical persons and legal entities which right of subsurface use has termless character;

- temporary subsoil users - physical persons and legal entities which right of subsurface use is limited to certain term;

- the geologist - prospecting works - the works connected with search of mineral deposits and their assessment;

- construction and operation of the underground constructions which are not connected from the geologist - prospecting works and mining of work on construction and operation of underground constructions of general economy appointment, and also for burial of radioactive waste, hazardous substances and sewage;

- the subsoil plot - the part of subsoil allocated in the closed borders for provision in subsurface use;

- payment for right to use of subsoil - one-time payment to the owner of subsoil (state) for provision of the right of their use;
