We are proud of the implementation of the projects we have been working on for a long time, such as Baimka, Beringovsky. The anchor resident of the Torah passed directly to coal mining, and the first export to the APR countries took place. This market feels good, and there are opportunities for development.

The next year, the plan is 500-600 thousand tons, ”the governor’s press service quotes.

"There is something to work on, projects began to appear that we did not see at the time of creation of the TOP, did not expect. At us now on gas look in another way, new prospects were opened. There were five residents who are engaged in gold. These are small deposits, they do not look like the Dome, on the Maiskoye.
