Construction was previously started at the mine in 1960s, but the project was then mothballed. Construction again started in 1994, but stopped again, due to lack of financing.[3] In the late 2010s, the project was once again restarted.

A full range of exploration work has been completed at the proposed mine site, according to a document from the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation.[1]
