The Taldinsky-Zapadny surface coal mine was owned and operated by TALTEK until 2021 when it was sold to Kusbassrazrezugol[2]. Later in 2022, the mine was sold again to a businessman from Altai region Anton Petrov, stating that the mine has been operating with losses recently.[3][4]

In 2020, the mine produced 0.83 million tonnes of coal, of which 0.7 (83%) were exported with 0.5 million of exports delivered to Ukraine.[2] Previously the mine produced about 1.2 million tonnes per year. [5][6]

The mine's remaining reserves are only 5 million tonnes and according to the media article, the mine was acquired to be potentially used as a storage for excavated rocks from the nearby Taldinsky coal mine, operated by Kuzbassrazrezugol.[4]

The number of personnel reduced from 221 in 2021 to 4 in 2022.[4]
