For 9 months of 2022, the company “Amurugol” (an asset of the holding “Russian Coal” in the Amur region) increased the production of brown thermal coal by 9% compared to the same period in 2021 – from 2.2 to 2.4 million tons.
Solid fuel production is ahead of schedule, the company said.
At the same time, coal production at the Yerkovetsky mine increased by 7% from 1.5 to 1.6 million tons in January – September 2022. As part of the implementation of the investment program in 2022, the company continued to receive new equipment. At the moment, about 30 units of large mining equipment are involved in the Yerkovets section, the company employs over 600 people.
As of the beginning of 2022, the licensed reserves of the Yerkovetsky mine amounted to about 500 million tons of thermal coal, which allows the operation of the mine for more than 180 years. The resources of the entire Yerkovetsky brown coal deposit amount to about 2.0 billion tons, which makes it possible to significantly increase the production capacity of the coal mining enterprise in the future.
B-grade coal produced by Amurugol is used to provide heat and power industry enterprises and the housing and communal services sector of the Amur Region and adjacent regions of the Russian Far East.
