The Butovskaya coal mine is owned and operated by Shakhta Butovskaya LLC, whose ultimate parent is KOKS PJSC.[3] KOKS Group also includes the Management Company Industrial Metallurgical Holding (IMH)[3], which is often referred to as the owner of Shakhta Butovskaya LLC.[1][4]

The mine produces coking coal for metallurgical industry.

The first stage was commissioned in 2013 and the second stage in 2017.[5] Expansion to the second stage was to reach 1.9 Mt of capacity in 2017 from 1.3 Mt/year previously.[6] The company then expected Butovskaya's full capacity utilization to reach 2.3 million-2.5 million Mt/year, before reaching 2.7 million mt/year in 2021, to boost the group's coking coal self-sufficiency.[5][6] Another source from 2022 reported that the mine's capacity was 2.7 million tonnes already in 2016.[7]

Production at the mine was suspended in September 2020.[4] According to KOKS Group's 2022 annual report, production was suspended due to unfavourable market conditions for grade KO coal.[8] The mine went into the bankruptcy proceedings in 2021.[9]

In 2022, the technical liquidation project of the mine was approved.[10] As at 31 December 2022 restoration and technical liquidation liability related to the mine has been recognized in the amount of RR 701 million.[10]

No historical production figures are available for the mine, but it appears that production was below 2 million tonnes per annum prior to its closure.

The license was revoked in August 2022.[4] The mine's assets were planned to be auctioned off on September 30, 2022.[11]

In August 2023 it was reported that the Kemerovo arbitration court approved a settlement agreement between Shakhta Butovskaya LLC and its creditors and terminated bankruptcy proceedings. Creditors entered into a settlement agreement with the mine.[4]
