Chukotka will receive 500 billion rubles for development

Chukotka will receive more than 517 billion rubles as a result of public and private investment. Immediately, three large mining projects will start in the region. The relevant agreements were signed on the eve of the plenipotentiary Yuri Trutnev and representatives of investment companies.

360 billion rubles will be spent on the development of deposits in the Baim zone. It is one of the largest porphyry copper mineralization in the world. According to expert estimates, 23 million tons of copper and 2 thousand tons of gold lie in it. By 2026, a mining and processing plant will appear here. It will allow to create 3,5 thousand jobs in Chukotka and will provide an increase in gross regional product by 45 billion rubles a year.

Two more mining and processing plants will appear on the gold and silver deposits "Maple" and "Kekura". Investments will be 25,9 billion rubles. They are taken to build companies that are among the residents of the Tor of Chukotka. These are CJSC Base Metals and LLC Maple.

During the meeting in Anadyr, Deputy Prime Minister Yury Trutnev noted that if it were not for the problems with the provision of energy, the projects would have been launched a year earlier. He recalled the responsibility for this by various authorities.

"We reviewed gold mining projects, discussed the development of the Baim zone. These are the largest projects implemented in Chukotka. We need to help investors to implement projects, create new jobs, create new opportunities for the development of the region," the deputy prime minister said.

Successful implementation of projects will make the Chukotka budget bezdotatsionnym. Only according to preliminary estimates, the growth of the CDF in the region in the next 10 years will increase by more than 3,6 times. It is planned to create 5 thousand jobs, as well as more 10 thousand jobs in related industries. More than 124 billion rubles will be invested in the development of the region’s energy infrastructure. The reconstruction of the airport and the seaport of Pevek will send about 7 billion rubles. Another 2,4 billion rubles will be provided for the construction and reconstruction of roads.
