Siberian Coal Energy Company (SUEK) owns and operates the mine. A majority of coal from the mine is exported to European and Asian markets. Domestic consumers include power plants and coal distribution companies supplying households. [1]

The coal is supplied to the Novosibirsk-4 power station, along with the coal from the Chernogorsky coal mine; as well as to the Novosibirsk-2 power station, along with the coal from the Chernogorsky coal mine and Zarechny coal mine. [3]

The mine originally had a planned capacity of 1 million tonnes but as of 2022 that appears not to have been realized [1][4]
