Development of companies should aim to increase their value; it is provided by applying the concept of value-based management. This approach can also be the basis for the growth of the value of integrated companies or groups, strategic projects and economic sectors. The mineral resources sector is characterized by a high level of vertical integration, and its own effect of technological, economic and institutional factors that determine the value of mineral assets and products. Assessment of value of the projects of the sectoral level can be carried out with the application of the concept of added value and value chains designed on this basis. The aim of the present research is to substantiate scientifically an approach to assessing the project for establishing the tin industry in the Republic of Kazakhstan taking into account the concept of value added. We use the following research methods: comparative analysis, system approach, strategic analysis, and managerial decision-making methods. Scientific novelty of the research consists in the following: the research identifies specific differences in designing value added chains in the mineral sector that include economic, technological, and institutional factors; the research shows that the specifics of mining projects determines the value of mineral assets and the entire value added chain; the algorithm for assessing the strategic investment project of the sectoral level in the mineral resource sector includes an assessment of effects for the main stakeholders ; the organizational-economic mechanism for creating the tin industry based on the development and comparison of different options of value added chains. The object of the research is a project on creating the tin industry in the Republic of Kazakhstan on the basis of Syrymbet tin deposit. The research justifies the application of the value added concept for selecting one of the options of the project of deposit development; we propose a model for designing the value added chain in the mineral sector, develop an algorithm for creating the tin industry, taking into account the interests of the state and subsoil users.
The results of the study can be used by mining companies and by state authorities that manage subsoil use, because they complement existing methods for assessing strategic sectoral projects with new effects and help manage them. In continuation of the research we plan to carry out quantitative evaluation of various effects of the strategic project and comparative analysis of the variants of value added chains in the organizational-economic mechanism of formation of the tin industry in Kazakhstan
