Mining began at the Shestaki coal mine in 1970. The mine joined the Stroyservis group in 2000. It produces around 0.8 million tons of coal per year.[2]

In 2018, they planned to put into operation the Ubinsky blocks of the Guryevsky district. It is unclear if this operation has been instated yet.[3]
