The possibility of using morphostructural (structure-geomorphological) and neotectonic analysis to identify criteria and indicators of different types of natural resources fields formation and transformation. The principles, main tasks and methods for small, medium and large-scale morphostructural and neotectonic research in the areas of known concentration or for prediction of new natural resources deposits have been defined.

Key words: 
morphostructural-neotectonic studies, morphostructural analysis, neotectonic analysis, endogenous deposits, exogenous deposits
