In the current economic environment, the rent-oriented business pattern is basic for various industries and sectors of the economy, including the mining industry. Rent, being a result of monopolizing the production factor ownership, stimulates the owners to effective use their possessions. This article provides a retrospective and comparative analysis of various scientific approaches to studying rent as a factor income, reveals its essence as an economic category, describes the reasons for the emergence and the varieties of rent payments. A particular attention is paid to investigating the mining rent appropriation mechanism with account of ecological needs of the society.
