Background

The Bogatyr Coal Mine is a proposed coal mine that was developed by Coalstar.[3] In 2021 a subsidiary of Coalstar obtained a license for exploration works at Bogatyr section.[3]

The company plans to start producing Anthracite coal already in 2023, reaching capacity of 10 million tonnes in 10 years' time.[4] The project also includes construction of a port in Primoriye with 35 Mt of capacity, to be built by another subsidiary of Coalstar. The Aurora port aims to tranship 10Mt of coal from the Bogatyr mine, coal from the Mayrykhsky coal mine, as well as oil.[5][6]

Projected investments amount to RUB 56 billion.[4] In the first year of operations (2023) the company plans to produce 1.5 Mt, and increase capacity to 10Mt in 10 years' time.[4]

It appears that construction has started in the beginning of 2022.[7]

A number of environmental problems were flagged with the construction of the surface coal mine. [2]
