Baykaimskaya coal mine (шахта Байкаимская) is an underground mine near Mokhovo, Kemerovo Oblast, Russia.[8]

The Baykaimskaya coal mine is owned and operated by Kuzbassrazrezugol, which in turn is majority owned owned by Ural Mining Metallurgical Company.[9][8][10]

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.[11] In 2022, the Federal Technical Supervision Authority 'Rostechnadzor' confirmed fire safety violations at several underground mines in Kuzbass, inlcluding at Baykaimskaya.[12] In total, 13 inspections were conducted at Baykaimskaya during 2022.[13]

The annual report of Kuzbassrazrezugol referred to the underground portion of production at Mokhovsky (ie at Baykaimskaya) at 2.4 million tonnes in 2020 and 0.85 million tonnes in 2021.[14] The mine's production was very negligible in the first half of 2022, a 90% reduction compared to the same period in 2021.[15] It appears that the mine's operations were suspended in 2022 following the inspections and the uncovered safety issues. Kuzbassrazrezugol's 2022 annual report did not refer to any activity at the mine.[9]

As of July 2023, there was no news on whether the mine is operating and it was considered mothballed. January 2024 news stated that the mine's operations were suspended again, suggesting that it was operational before.[16] It was not clear whether the suspension is temporary.
