Smirnov A. A., Nikitin I. V. Justifying the types and methods of adapting the mining technological system of a mining enterprise to changing conditions of underground mining. Izvestiya vysshikh uchebnykh zavedenii. Gornyi zhurnal = News of the Higher Institutions. Mining Journal. 2019; 6: 14–20 (In Russ.). DOI: 10.21440/0536-1028-2019-6-14-20

Research aim is to study the process of adapting the mining and technological system of a mining enterprise to the changing external and internal conditions of deep-seated deposits underground mining. By the term mining and technological system of a mining enterprise we mean a set of interrelated technological processes and organizational solutions for mineral extraction from the subsoil and its further dressing.
Research methodology. The paper uses a complex method of research, which includes the analysis of conditions and generalization of the experience of underground mining of deep ore and non-metallic deposits, systematization and assessment of conditions and factors affecting the functioning of the mining and technological system of the mining enterprise, the establishment of types and development of adaptation methods based on the method of scientific induction.
Results. The substantiation of types (micro- and macroadaptation) and methods (reservation or
diversification of production, regulation or modernization of production, organizational changes
or restructuring) of adaptation of mining and technological system of the mining enterprise to the changing external economic (market), natural (mining and geological), production (technological), social and environmental conditions of underground mining of deep-seated deposits on the basis of accounting and management of factors causing transition processes.
Results application area. The results can be used in the feasibility study and design of mining and technological systems of mining enterprises with underground method of ore mining (for example, in the mining of deep-seated iron ore deposits).

Key words: deep-seated deposit; underground mining; adaptation; transition process; systematization; economic stability.
