Raspadskaya Coal Company, a subsidiary of Evraz, operates the mine and the whole Yuzhkuzbassugol coal mining complex.[1]

60% is supplied to Evraz ZSMK steel plant and 40% to Raspdskaya washing plant. The steel business of EVRAZ, coke-chemical and steel mills are the main customers of the mine.[3]

In the first half of 2022, the mine produced 0.9 million tonnes, this is 35% lower than in the same period in 2021.[4] 2021 production was 3.2 million tonnes.[5]

Working Conditions

In November 2021, smoke occurred at the Alardinskaya mine and miners were evacuated. There were no casualties.[6]

An article from August 2022 refers to 8 active underground fires in the mines of Kuzbass, including at Alardinskaya, as detected by the Federal Authority for Technical Supervision 'RosttechNadzor'. The fires are being managed, but not fully eliminated. [7]

In February 11, 2003, a methane outbreak killed 2 miners and 11 were hospitalized.[8][9]
