The Bunguro-Listvyansky 2-4 coal mine (Бунгуро-Листвянский разрез) is a surface mine in Kemerovo Oblast, Russia. The project is part of Russia's 'Programme for Coal Industry Development up to 2035', released in June 2020.[3]

Energiya-NK LLC acquired the license to develop the section in 2015. In 2018, some unauthorized mining activity was recorded near the village of Maneyha.[4] The company was ordered to suspend operations for 90 days, the company also promised to offer alternative housing to the affected residents.[4]

As of January 2020, public hearings on environmental impact assessment (EIA) were being held in two settlements of the Novokuznetsk region.[5]

It appeared that a second round of public hearings took place in summer 2022.[6]

As of September 2022, there was no information on 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.[7] However, the project was not considered Shelved at that point as public hearings still progressed in summer 2022.[6]

There was no news on the status of the project as of September 2023.
