The coal mine is operated by Skakhta Bolshevik JSC, which was owned by Sibuglemet.[2] The majority shareholder of Sibuglement was the State Development Corporation VEB.[3] In 2022 following the sanctions against many Russian companies, a new company Novaya Gornaya Management Company LLC was formed to replace Sibuglement Holding LLC as the manager of the coal assets.[3] Later in March 2022, VEB ceased to be the the 71% majority shareholder of the Novaya Gornaya Management Company LLC following the management buy-out of the company. Now 4 private individuals each hold 17.6%.[4]

Evraz was planning to acquire the assets of Sibuglemet in 2020, but this deal fell through.[5] Evraz also used to manage Sibuglemet assets from 2015[5], the management services agreement was terminated in November 2020.[6][7]

In 1H 2022 the mine produced 0.2 million tonnes of coal, which was 14% lower than in the same period in 2021.[8]

It is expected that the mine will stop producing in 2025.[9]
