Solving the problem of calculating and distributing mining rent between the members of subsoil use will help to create an effective mechanism for balancing the interests of the mining companies and the state as the owner of natural resources. This explains the importance of studying the economic nature of the mining rent, identifying the specific features in formation of its varieties, distinguishing between the rent income, due to the diversity of natural characteristics, and the business profit, which includes other types of rents, the technological rent being one of them. The authors pay special attention to the key principles that should form the basis of the methodological approach to calculation and distribution of the mining rent.
