The article discusses the mechanism of economic availability of minerals and raw materials and stimulation of their extraction using redistribution of mineral mining finance allocated between a region and the federation on the strength of reduction in the pollution damage. The models to calculate minimum sales price of a mineral and to calculate mineral mining investment with regard to the pollution damage are presented. It is suggested to use the method of analysis of hierarchies to predict reduction in the pollution damage in the course of application of an advanced (ecology-friendly) technology. The authors put forward a mineral mining technology based on the principles of the Green Economy, i.e. the model accounts for the difference in the mine planning and operation at the levels of a company, a region and the federal authorities. The result for the regional and federation authorities, together with the money flow in the budget, includes the environmental pollution reduction in the area of responsibility of a mining company. In the capacity of the optimality criterion, the proposed optimization model uses leveling of values of the modified internal rate of return for the parties of a project within the public and business partnership. The resultant multi-criteria model allows for compromised Pareto investment distribution. The developed mathematical tool will enable stimulation of introduction of pure technologies, elimination of closure of unprofi table mines and job cuts, avoidance of mineral-induced increase in the ecological damage, all of which make the Green Economy framework of mineral mining.
