In 2013, ICTH and Oleg Miserva established a joint company — East Mining Company — to develop coal mining production in the Far East of Russia, including the Omsukchan Coal Cluster.[2]

Notably, coal mining development has been stymied in this area because it lacks reliable transport infrastructure between the Omsukchan deposits and the coast of the Sea of Okhotsk. The Omsukchan coal cluster project intends to reconstruct a road section of Omsukchan-Galimy, construct the Galimy-Pestraya-Dresva highway, and construct a coal terminal on the coast of the Pestraya Dresva bay.[3]
