Coal Mine Background

Mining at Yubileynaya started in 1966 as Baydayevskaya-Severnaya No.1.[3] In 2007, 38 miners died in the mine following an explosion.[4] From 2010 to 2013 the mine was mothballed.[1] In February 2013 the Yubileynaya mine was sold to TopProm by EVRAZ Group.[5] In 2013 it was significantly upgraded. In 2016 regular coal output was restarted.[1]
