The Listvyazhnaya coal mine is operated and owned by SDS UGOL, which is a subsidiary of Siberian Business Union-Coal.

The capacity of the mine is 5.2 million tonnes.[2] In 2020 it produced 4.7 million tonnes.[3]

In November 2021, a methane leak at the mine caused a large accident that killed 51 workers and injured 106. The operations have been suspended, the mine has not produced since then, the consequences of the explosion are being liquidated. The main reason of the explosion has been named as a consistently raised level of methane and poor ventilation equipment.[2] In March 2022, during accident liquidation works, 10 miners were hospitalized, presumably due to insufficient oxygen levels.[4]

In September 2022 the mine has submitted a project to resume mining operations, the outcome of this review is not known.[5]
