Berezovksy mine

From Global Energy Monitor
This article is part of the Global Coal Mine Tracker, a project of Global Energy Monitor.

The Berezovksy mine is an operating coal mine in the Kemerovo Oblast of Russia. Two expansions to the mine — Bungursky 7 and Berezovsky-Centralniy — have been proposed that would increase the mine's production capacity.


This map shows most of the massive Berezovksy mine (visible on both the left and right of the image shown).[1] The mine includes the sections "Berezovsky," "Berezovsky West," "Berezovsky Vostochny," "Berezovsky Yuzhny," and "Spichenkovsky." The proposed "Bungursky 7" expansion is located immediately to the east.[2] The mine stretches across parts of the Prokopyevsky and Novokuznetsky Districts of Kemerovo Oblast.

The Berezovksy mine has been in operation since February 2005.[3]

The two expansion projects are being developed to put into operation. Results on a state examination of the Bungursky-7 site were expected in the 2nd quarter of 2019. Completion of the exploration at the Berezovsky-Centralniy section was planned for the 4th quarter of 2019.[4]
