To date, Russia is one of the few countries that has huge reserves of gold - over 25 thousand tons. Obviously, the creation of a system of effective exploitation of its deposits and rational use of the extracted metal largely predetermines the possibility of economic recovery in general and its development in the future, this is due to the special importance of gold among other natural formations. This paper considers the prospects of involvement in the exploitation of small watered placer gold deposits and summarizes the practical experience in the use of excavation and processing block-modular equipment in the exploitation of such deposits. At the same time, recommendations for the use of certain complexes of operating equipment in specific conditions are proposed and substantiated. Priority sources of power supply of equipment in the development of small watered placers are determined, the methodology of preliminary determination of the project profitability is presented.
