Pervomaisky coal mine
|This article is part of the Global Coal Mine Tracker, a project of Global Energy Monitor.|
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.
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. In its first year of operation, Pervomaisky mined 1.9 million tons of coal.
By 2019, they increased annual production capacity to 7 mtpa.
But the ultimate goal is production of 10 million tons per year. It is unclear when that target will be reached.
