Abstract : The translation is a discussion of the tectonic structure of the Yakutian Autonomous SSR. Various commercial minerals were disclosed in this area. In order to provide a scientific base for detection of these minerals, a seven-year period of extensive geological studies is being conducted. An attempt is being made to find laws governing the distribution of commercial minerals. This is the first works on tectonics of Yakutia taken as a whole. It contains personal observations by the authors. As far as possible, the whole complex of existing geological and geophysical data was taken into consideration for the compilation of the tectonic map of Yakutia, since the completed geological studies of it were of a very diverse quality. The existing tectonic charts and diagrams of different scales were taken as a base for relatively small sections. (Author)
