Through thorns to investments

Kamchatsky Krai managed to become attractive for businessmen and useful for their projects

The most beautiful and resource-rich region of Russia - the Kamchatka Territory - has long been deprived of investors' attention, especially against the background of other Far Eastern territories. The relative youth of the region affected, as the Kamchatka region and the Koryak autonomous region united only in 2007. After this event, the issue of economic development of a new subject was sharply raised. The rate had to be made not only for the traditional fish industry, but also for other types of industry.

Since 2011, a new team of the government of the Kamchatka Territory has taken a course to diversify the region's economy - tourism, mining, became the priority sectors. The region has developed a mechanism for implementing the selected program, as well as for interaction with the federal center. New departments also appeared in the region. All this was done to attract investors to the territory, which the region lacked so much. 

Evaluate the results of work by the number of guests on the peninsula. In recent years, the number of tourists has increased at times - now the region takes about 200 thousand people a year. The greatest demand for Kamchatka falls on July, August and September, but the flow of foreign visitors does not stop and in the middle of autumn - guests from China are happy to come to the region in October. Popular tours to the peninsula are also in the winter months. 

Another important direction of development of Kamchatka was the mining industry, which originated in the region in 2005, with the beginning of operation of the Aginsk mine by the company "Kamchatka Gold". The second wind she received in 2015, when in the region the same company launched production at the Ametistovoe ore mining and processing enterprise. It became the largest enterprise in its industry, in July of this year, a tenth of a ton of gold was produced there. It was the Amethyst deposit that accounted for the bulk of investments in Kamchatka gold mining - in five years the investments exceeded 15 billion rubles. The current state of the raw materials base will allow the mine to operate at least up to 2027 a year, and the successful implementation of the exploration program will prolong this period. 

Thanks to the company's activities, about 1 billion rubles are received annually into budgets of various levels. With the development of promising projects of "Gold of Kamchatka" this amount of deductions will only grow. To make mining projects on the peninsula cost-effective, including the introduced RIP regimes (regional investment project) and TOR (the territory of advanced socio-economic development). 

At the fourth Eastern Economic Forum, the management of Kamchatka's Gold will sign an agreement with the Government of the Kamchatka Territory and the Corporation for the Development of the Far East to include the company's projects in the Kamchatka TOR. Within the framework of these agreements, the company intends to invest in the construction of an underground mine in the Ametistovoe deposit and the establishment of a GOK based on deposits in the central part of the peninsula. 

The company "Gold of Kamchatka" is currently conducting prospective exploration works at the Kumroch deposit, where it plans to build its third enterprise. This project is the future of the company, its implementation will allow Kamchatka to gain a firm foothold in the eighth place among the largest gold mining regions in Russia. 

An example of such an active appearance and development of a new industry for the region speaks of a close and constructive dialogue between business and the state, which allows us to develop the economy of the Kamchatka Territory.
