Aleksiyevskaya Mine JSC operates the mine. It was previously owned by Zarechnaya Coal Company which declared bankruptcy in 2017, as a result there have been significant layoffs at the mine.

The mine has produced no coal since May 2020 and is currently up for sale.[1][3] Up to May 2020 the mine's production was up to 2 million tonnes per year.[4]

Kuzbassrazrezugol bought the mine in late 2021.[4] It is not clear whether the mine is operating and producing under the new ownership, although in February 2022 there's a media report of suspension of activity at several mines, including at Aleksiyevskaya due to non-compliance with safety standards.[5] As per Argus Russian coal report, no production is reported for the mine in 1H 2022.[6]
