The Bureinsky coal mine is operated by Urgalugol JSC, a subsidiary of SUEK. The mine is situated in the Bureinsky coal field in the Russian Far East.

Coal from the Khabarovsk mines of SUEK (Bureinsky, Severnaya Coal Mine and Pravoberezhny coal mine) is exported primarily to China and South Korea.[1] The proximity of the assets to the Vanino Bulk Terminal is an advantage. Mines in this region also supply coal to Russian power generation customers located in the Khabarovsk and Primorye regions.[1]

In the last few years (2020-2021) the Bureinsky coal mine maintains production at 1.8-2 million tonnes per year.[2] Its reserves are depleting and are only 18 Mt at the end of 2021.[3]
