Aleksievskaya Coal Mine (шахта Алексиевская) is an underground coal mine in Kemerovo Oblast, Russia.[5]

The mine used to be part of Zarechnaya Coal Company which declared bankruptcy in 2017, as a result there have been significant layoffs at the mine. Kuzbassrazrezugol bought the mine in late 2021.[6]

The mine has produced no coal since May 2020 and was up for sale.[5][7] Up to May 2020 the mine's production was up to 2 million tonnes per year.[6]

It was not clear whether the mine has been operating and producing under the new ownership, although in February 2022 there was a media report of suspension of activity at several mines, including at Aleksiyevskaya due to non-compliance with safety standards.[8]

As per Argus Russian coal report, no production was reported for the mine in 1H 2022.[9] A media report from July 2022 stated that the mine was acquired by Kuzbassrazrezugol to undertake safety works in order to avoid flooding of the neighbouring Baykaimskaya coal mine, but not to continue production.[10] It is therefore assumed that the mine is mothballed.
