Mining regulation

MINING REGULATION (EN: mining regulations; DE: Berg-Reglement; FR: Berg-reglement; ES: reglamento minero; RU: Берг-регламент) is the legislative act of the 1739, which has been issued in addition and for the development of the Mining privilege.

The Mining regulation has decreased the taxation of the industrialists, obliging them to deliver into the treasury not all, but only 2/3 of the smelted copper; they have been permitted to sell the remaining copper freely. They have been permitted to assign the governmental peasants to the private industrial plants. The industrialists have been exempted from the duties onto the food and supplies, which were delivered into the industrial plants. There have been provided to the foreigners the privileges, which were equal to the ones of the Russian industrialists. The main significance of the Mining regulation was that it has eliminated the prevalent right of the land owners on the development of the useful minerals on their land, recognizing this right for those people, who have been the first to discover these minerals. This regulation has been abolished during the 1782. The Mining regulation has lost the significance during the 1806.
