In Chukotka, production of coal and brown coal, as well as natural gas, increased. Precious metals production has slightly declined in the first nine months of this year.

According to the press service of the Chukotka government, at the beginning of October, the Beringpromugol company produced more than 560 thousand tons of coal at the Fandyushkinskoye Pole deposit, which is 122% of the level of the same period last year. The amount of mined brown coal is estimated at 95 thousand tons, an increase of 18%. The indicator for natural gas increased by 12% and exceeded 50 million cubic meters.

In the district, 18,6 tons of gold were mined in nine months, which is 0,9% less compared to the same period in 2019. More than 79 tons of silver was obtained, or 93% of last year's level. The mining of precious metals was carried out by the companies "Mine Karalveem", "Northern Gold", "Chukotka Mining and Geological Company", "Rudnik Valunisty" and "ZK Mayskoye". In addition, 14 artels were involved in the extraction of placer gold. They received a total of 1 kg, which is 864 kg less.

The district government notes that budget revenues from the activities of mining enterprises provided funding for anti-crisis measures in the region.
