The activities of each company are subject to a wide range of risks, as the market environment is characterized by a high degree of uncertainty and a probabilistic nature. The existence of risks contributes to an intensive economy development, which is due to correlation between the risk level and the scope of expected results. Each project features certain risks; therefore, while implementing any project, there is a need to manage its risks. The paper presents the investigation results of risk identification and assessment for an investment project based on an example of project implementation in the coal-mining sector. The Russian coal industry is one of the most important areas of economic activities, despite the deep decline in the coal industry worldwide over the past decade. Therefore, the main issues and ways of minimizing project risks in the coal mining industry, that are discussed in this paper, are still relevant. The formed comprehensive and holistic mechanism for understanding issues related to investment project risks can be used in practical activities of various companies that implement investment projects.
