The enterprise “Russian Coal” planted 27,000 pine seedlings in the Krasnoyarsk Territory

The Krasnoyarsk Krayugol company (an asset of the Russian Coal Holding in the Krasnoyarsk Territory) and its Pereyaslovsky Section branch planted 27,692 pine seedlings as part of the biological stage of recultivation of disturbed lands.

On the territory of the Krasnoyarsk Territory, miners have planted an area of 10 hectares. With proper planting, 95% of seedlings will take root — and this is about 26 thousand plants.

Reclamation is the most important work that completes the production process of solid fuel extraction. The restoration of waste lands is carried out at the enterprises of “Russian Coal” on an ongoing basis. This year was no exception.

“This is the second stage of reclamation work carried out at the Pereyaslavsky section. The first one was technical, it included the layout of the surface of disturbed lands (internal dumps). The biological stage of reclamation is carried out no earlier than two years after the first one, and the planting of forest crops is one of the environmental measures aimed at reducing the harmful effects of the coal mine on the environment. The age of the planted seedlings is 2 years, and in the next five years our specialists will observe and take care of the plantings,” explained the representative of the section.

Russian Coal enterprises in the Krasnoyarsk Territory also systematically carry out measures to restore biological resources in water bodies. In 2022, JSC “Krasnoyarsk Krai Coal” and the Sayano-Partizansky section together with specialists of the Federal State Budgetary Institution “Glavrybvod” released about 18 thousand sterlet fry into the Yenisei River.
