Sverdlovsk region is the second one in Russia as to industrial output. Many industrial plants such as NTMK, Kachkanar GOK “Vanadiy”, VSMPO, Uralmash, Bogoslovsk aluminum plant and the Ural Aluminum Plant are located in this region. Ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgies (industrial output being 31% and 19% correspondently) and iron ore and uranium concentration as well as machine building are the most prevailing industries.

Mining industry presents a low profile at the moment though bauxite mining as well as asbestos, iron ore, vanadium, copper and semiprecious stones mining is of great importance in Russia.
