The coal company, Energia-NK, will be mining the Bungurskoye deposit. The development of these reserves for stage I of the mine is underway.

The project is part of Russia's 'Programme for Coal Industry Development up to 2035', released in June 2020.[2]

Energia-NK acquired the license to develop the section in 2015. In 2018, some unauthorized mining activity was recorded near the village of Maneyha.[3] The company was ordered to suspend operations for 90 days and it also promised to offer alternative housing to the affected residents.[3]

As of January 2020, hearings on environmental impact assessments (EIA) were being held in two settlements of the Novokuznetsk region.[4]

It appears that a second round of public hearings took place in summer 2022.[5]

There is no information about the status of construction.

In September 2022, the governor of Kuzbass stated that new mine projects are on hold due to infrastructure restrictions of coal exports through the Eastern route of Russian Railways, only the projects that are nearing completion are being finished.[6] However, the project is not considered Shelved yet as public hearings still progressed in summer 2022.[5]


Residents of Kuzbass have organized against the proposed coal mine. They are concerned about its proximity to a nearby cemetery and the river Bungur which crosses the licensed section. Environmentalists are also against the construction of a new road for the coal mine.[4][3]
