The article discusses the prospects of the Malo-Chipiketsky zone in the southern part of the Patomsky quartz-bearing region of the Baikal province, as a potentially probable new raw material base for granular and transparent quartz in the east of the country. The assessment of the area prospects was carried out according to the algorithm developed by FSUE TsNIIgeolerud for studying quartz objects, which includes a set of the most effective methods for assessing quartz raw materials, quartz concentrates and products from them. The research results showed high efficiency of the algorithm. The studies made it possible at the stage of prospecting to expressly, with a high degree of probability, sort out objects according to the quality of raw materials, identify ore-formation types of quartz and outline possible directions for the use of raw materials. The results were used in the selection and contouring of promising sections of quartz veins to assess the predicted resources of the selected ore-formation types of quartz.
