Background

The Beregovoy coal mine is a surface coal mine. It is operated by UK Yuzhnaya OAO, a subsidiary of Sibuglemet, which in turn is a subsidiary of Evraz.

The mine — along with other large surface mines in the area — has faced opposition from Shor people, an Indigenous group that lives and traditionally hunts in the area where the mine is now located.[2]

In March 2019, a judge shut the mine down for 90 days, after multiple mining safety violations were found.[3]
