The Pervomaisky coal mine is an operating coal mine located in Kemerovo Oblast, Russia. (It is not to be confused with Pervomayskaya coal mine, a separate mine also in Kemerovo Oblast.)


The map below shows the location of the mine, near Kotino, in Prokopyevsky District, Kemerovo Oblast, Russia.[1]

The Pervomaisky coal mine — which was also known as the Mayskaya or Mayskoe mine, at one point — was put into operation in May 2012 by SDS UGOL.[2] In its first year of operation, Pervomaisky mined 1.9 million tons of coal.[3]

By 2019, they increased annual production capacity to 7 mtpa.[4]

But the ultimate goal is production of 10 million tons per year.[3] It is unclear when that target will be reached.
