Mining has taken place at the Azeisky mine since 1969. It is operated by Vostsibugol, a subsidiary of En+ Group.[2][3] The mine is technically part of the Tulunugol mine, together with the Tulunugol-Mugunsky coal mine, even though the two mines are about 30 km apart.

Today, while the Azeisky mine's capacity is technically 7.3 MTPA, Vostsibugol states that production is 1.8 MTPA.[4]
