Subject. This article discusses the prospects for the development of construction materials deposit mining in the mountain area of the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic.
Objectives. The article aims to identify and evaluate construction raw materials deposits on the balance sheet.
Methods. For the study, we used statistical, predictive, and logical analyses, and the marginal costs and field research methods.
Results. Based on the marginal and predicted individual cost methods, the article ranks raw materials sources for the feasibility and consistency of their involvement in operation.
Conclusions. The article speaks about the feasibility of creating intra-valley complex production and raw materials hubs based on the processing of balance sheet reserves of construction raw materials for each mountain valley. In the medium term, production and raw materials hubs can become the supporting structural elements of the ecological and economic framework of the Republic's mountain area.

Keywords: marginal costs, individual cost price, production and raw materials hub, depressed area, dedicated production links
