General problems of geology, tectonics, and metallogeny of Mongolia are considered. The radiogeochemical and metallogenic subdivision of this territory with respect to uranium was carried out for the first time. The economic and prospective types of uranium ore mineralization are characterized and the uranium ore provinces and districts are outlined along with estimation of their possible uranium resources. The main attention is focused on the known and permissive uranium ore districts as targets for further geological exploration. The book is intended for a wide circle of geologists dealing with geological exploration of uranium deposits and study of uranium ore provinces and districts in Mongolia. The conclusions drawn in this book may be helpful in the decision making related to the development of mineral resources of Mongolia and particular provinces of this country. 22 tables, 29 figures, 63 references.
