Mount Rusanov ( Russian Гора Русанова Gora Russanowa ) is an isolated mountain in the East Antarctic Queen Maud Land . It rises north of the Russkiye Mountains and 55 km northeast of Zhelannaya Mountain .
Cartographers from the Norsk Polarinstitutt mapped it using aerial photographs of the Third Norwegian Antarctic Expedition (1956–1960) from 1958 to 1959. Scientists from a Soviet Antarctic expedition mapped it again in 1959 and named it. It is named after the Russian polar explorer Vladimir Alexandrowitsch Russanow (1875–1913). The Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names translated the Russian designation into English in 1971.
