The article focuses on the manifestations of the modern «pandemic» crisis in the key resource industries (mineral resources and forest complexes) of the Far Eastern macroregion. The features of the crisis dynamics of production are shown depending on the predominance of some types of natural resources in the structure of the regional economy, their connection with Russian and world markets, the character of the impact of market factors. The influence of external shocks and national institutional imperatives on the change in the parameters of different branches of the natural resource sector has been investigated. There were found new crisis manifestations associated with the peculiarities of staff formation in the resource sector («shift workers factor»), their consequences for the regional economy and raw materials companies, the need to update the relevant scientific and methodological assessments and management decisions. It was revealed that with all the novelty and multidirectionality of manifestations of the crisis in 2020, the key characteristics of the situation are determined by the traditional set of fundamental reasons that define the development of a region with a resource specialization both in crisis and recovery periods
