Abstract - Summary 
(short description):
The Mineral cadastre of the Verkhnekamskoe Salt Deposit includes 155 names, including 105 mineral species belonging to chlorides, carbonates, sulfates, borates, sulphides, oxides, hydroxides, silicates, phosphates, fluorides, native elements. By origin, they are divided into 4 associations - chemogenic, clastogenic, epigenetic and technogenic. The most representative is epigenetic association, for which the minerals formed as a result of various transformations of salt rocks are characteristic. In particular, the processes of the folded catagenesis repeatedly led to the mobilization and spatial redistribution of brines within the salt bed, which reflected on the mineral composition of the rocks. In addition to the \"standard\" set of evaporite minerals, we also note uncharacteristic phases for the evaporite phases.
Key words: evaporate mineralogy, Verkhnekamskoe Salt Deposit, mineral cadastre
