Background

The Berezovskaya coal mine is operated by a branch of Severny Kuzbass Coal Company JSC, a subsidiary of TalTEK.[2] TalTEK acquired Severny Kuzbass in 2019.[3] In April 2023 media sources announced that Taltek is selling Severny Kuzbass to a private entrepreneur Stanislav Lupiy. However no official deal documents have been prepared yet.[4]

Pervomayskaya coal mine is another underground mine operated by Severny Kuzbass.

Extracted coal is delivered to the washing plant 'Severnaya'. The enriched coal is then sold on to metallurgical and coke-chemical facilities in Russia.[5][6]

Production has declined significantly in the last few years, from close to 1 million tonnes in 2019 to 0.45 million tonnes in 2021[7] and 0.545 million tonnes in 2022.[2] The mine's initial capacity was 1.5 million tonnes per year.[6]

In September 2022, the Federal Service for Environmental and Technical supervision (Rostechnadzor) ordered to suspend the operations of the mine due to higher-than-allowed methane content, inappropriate fixtures of the mined material and insufficient space for emergency exits in the mine.[8][9] However it appeared that the mine resumed operations later on.[10] Another suspension of operations for in a part of the mine for 30 days was ordered in April 2023.[11]
