Background

Mining began as a pilot program at Kolyvansky in 1994. In 2005, open pit mining was scaled up to 1.5 mtpa at the site. This increased to 3.5 mtpa after the owner, Siberian Anthracite, began mining at the Northern mining pit.[3]

In 2007, Siberian Anthracite began to develop the Krutikhinsky pit.[4] In 2014, they expanded to the eastern pit, which aimed to increase the production capacity to 8 mtpa.[3]

With regards to the latest expansion proposal of 10.5 mtpa, project documents have been completed, and the state and environmental assessments have given the project a "positive conclusion."[5]
