Subject. This article deals with the issues of sustainable development of the mineral resources sector of the Russian Federation.
Objectives. The article aims to select a method for assessing the impact of various factors on the economic performance of enterprises of the mineral resources sector.
Methods. For the study, we used the mathematical analysis.
Results. The article finds that the method of entropic weight makes it possible to objectively weigh the various factors affecting the effective feature.
Conclusions. The method of entropic weight is optimal for assessing the economic efficiency of the development of mineral deposits.

Keywords: mineral resources, econometric model, economic efficiency, raw data normalization
