The Cheremshansky coal mine is operated by Razrez Vinogradovsky LLC, which is owned by Kuzbass Fuel Company (KTK).[1]

It is sometimes referred to as part of Vinogradovsky coal mine.

The reported capacity is 5 Mtpa.[1]

The expansion of the mine capacity to 5.5 Mt by 2021 is mentioned in the 'Programme for Coal Industry Development up to 2035'[3]; this implies capacity increase of 0.5Mt for the mine. It is not clear whether this has been achieved and the recent production figures are significantly lower.

2020 operations were suspended due to the pandemic with production at only 89 thousand tonnes, 2021 production at Cheremshansky mine was 0.9 million tonnes.[4] The expansion project is therefore considered Shelved given the recent significantly lower production numbers.
