GEOMECHANICS - FOR EFFECTIVE MINING
 
Probably, there is no mineral in nature remained which has not been investigated by geology. Just enumerating the minerals being of value for contemporaries will take away a lot of time.

But, if the object of geological study appear to be separate minerals, the technologists should deal with rock masses, having a complicated composition and structure.

MONEY FOR MODERNIZATION. HOW MUCH MONEY IS NEEDED AND WHOM IT SHOULD BE TAKEN FROM?
 
The slogan of modernization will become (and is already becoming) the next simulacrum, until it is not clear how much money it needs and where from, whom from it is to be taken. This question is not being put by the heads of the Russian state and consequently their numerous appeals to modernization are so far nothing but starry-eyed dreams.
