The Bolshesyrskoye coal mine is a surface coal mine that became operational in 2007. It is operated by Sibugol LLC, which appears to be owned by private individuals.[2]

The Bolshesyrskoye coal mine is located in the Bolshesyrskoye coalfield.

Its stated capacity is now 5.5 million tonnes[3] (as of 2022). The company's website mentions 2 million tonnes as the mine's capacity over 2010-2018[4] so the mine must have undergone a significant expansion over the last few years.

However, production levels are lower at around 3 million tonnes. Over 2019-2022, the mine has reached its maximum production levels of more than 3 million tonnes.[4]
