The Barzasskoye tovarischestvo coal mine is an operating coal mine in the Kemerovo Oblast in Russia. In addition to the existing mine, two expansions to the mine are being considered: Gusinsky-South and Shcherbinovsky. Gusinsky-South was planned to commission in the first quarter of 2020,[1] while Shcherbinovsky is much longer term, with expectations for its expansions in 2033.[2]
