The Cheremshansky coal mine (Черемшанский разрез) is a surface coal mine in Kemerovo Oblast, Russia.[5] The Cheremshansky coal mine is owned by Kuzbass Fuel Company (Kuzbasskaya Toplivnaya Company JSC, or KTK).[5] In December 2022, Omega LLC acquired 99.66% in KTK from Millfast Trading Limited, Kilton Overseas Limited and Daenia Holdings Limited, the transaction was approved by the Russian President, Vladimir Putin.[6] This is part of Russia's response to nationalise energy companies previously held in foreign jurisdictions.[7]

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

The projected capacity of the mine is 5 Mtpa, according to KTK's website.[5] The expansion of the mine's capacity to 5.5 Mt by 2021 was mentioned in the 'Programme for Coal Industry Development up to 2035'[8] released in June 2020.

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.[9] In 2022 production was similar at 0.99 million tonnes.[10]

The expansion project is considered Shelved given no news on the project and significantly lower production numbers in the recent years.
