Amur Oblast ranks first in gold mining in the Far Eastern Federal District

In the Amur Region, 30,6 tons of gold were mined last year (6,6% more than in 2012), and only the Petropavlovsk Group of Companies raised more than 22 tons of precious metal. The second place belongs to Chukotka, where 24,6 tons of gold were mined. Production growth is a record 35,14%. The largest subsoil user was Chukotka GGK, which produced 13,4 tons of gold at the Kupol deposit and 3,5 tons at the Dvoinoe deposit.

The mining enterprises of Yakutia increased gold production by 4,6% over the year - to 22,3 tons. Ore gold production increased by 7,6% to 11,5 tons, alluvial gold - by 5,8% - to 10,8 tons. The increase in production in the 2013 year was due to the exploitation of new deposits. Total gold mining in the region last year engaged in 59 enterprises, including 10 - at the ore deposits and 49 - at placer deposits.

In the Magadan Region last year 21,4 tons of gold were produced, which is 3% higher than the results of 2012. Subsoil users of the Khabarovsk Territory increased their gold production by 2013% in 15 year and received a total of 20,8 tons. The gold miners of Kamchatka increased their gold production by 2013% to 19,4 tonnes by the end of 2,5.

Indicators of the gold mining industry in the Far East could have been even higher, but summer flooding in some areas of the Amur Region, Yakutia and the Khabarovsk Territory significantly complicated work and led to the shutdown of many enterprises.
