The Baykaimskaya coal mine is operated by Kuzbassrazrezugol, which is owned by Ural Mining Metallurgical Company.[1][3]

It is the only underground mine operated by Kuzbassrazrezugol, producing 2-2.5 million tonnes per annum.

In November 2021, 55 miners evacuated from the mine following a smoke alarm, there were no casualties[4]. In 2022, the Federal Technical Supervision Authority 'Rostechnadzor' confirmed fire safety violations at several underground mines in Kuzbass, inlcluding at the Baykaimskaya.[5] In total, 13 inspections were conducted at Baykaimskaya during 2022.[6]

The mine's production was very negligible at in the first half of 2022, a 90% reduction compared to the same period in 2021.[7] It appears that the mine's operations are currently suspended following the inspections and the uncovered safety issues.
