The Dzhebariki-Khaya coal mine is a surface mine, operated by Yakutugol, a subsidiary of Mechel.

The mine began in 1940 as an underground mine. In 1973, following an explosion at the underground mine, the mine was switched to opencast mining. In 1985, a new underground mine was reopened. Starting in 2014, Yakutugol began a planned transition in which the underground mine will be shut down, and the mine will continue solely as an opencast mine.[3] The last coal from the underground mine was extracted in 2016 and the mine started operating as a surface mine in 2017 with capacity of 0.32 million tonnes.[4]

Coal from the Dzhebariki-Khaya coal mine is sold to state housing and municipal services in the northern and central parts of the Republic of Sakha.[4][5] The mine is only accessible by means of the Aldan River.[5]
