The West-Taymyr Industrial Cluster is a proposed mining complex in the Syradasayskoye coal field in the Taymyr peninsula of Russia. Annual production is supposed to reach 10 million tons, and reserves are estimated at 5.7 billion tons.[1]

In addition to the mine, the industrial cluster involves construction of the Yenisey Seaport, a processing plant, a highway from the open pit to the sea terminal, storage facilities for combustive-lubricating materials and gas stations, as well as a residential camp for staff.
