Canadian corporation is interested in projects in Chukotka

Regional Vice President for Russian Projects at Kinross Gold Warwick Morley-Jepson, at a meeting with Chukotka Governor Roman Kopin, expressed the interest of the Canadian corporation in implementing infrastructure projects in Chukotka, according to the official website of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug.

The subject of bilateral discussion was the issues of business cooperation between the Okrug government and Kinross Gold. R. Kopin recalled that earlier in the negotiations with the management of Kinross Gold, he proposed to consider the possibility of implementing some infrastructure projects in Chukotka. In particular, they talked about the field of road construction. The first project provides for the construction of the Pevek - Komsomolsky road. About 150-200 thousand tons are constantly transported along this section and, according to government estimates, there will be no decrease in activity in the next 25-30 years. The second project is the road from Pevek through Bilibino towards Magadan.

"According to the existing version - through the Baim zone, Omolon - visually the branch makes a rather big hook, which as a result makes the project very expensive. We think that it could be "lowered" below: from Pevek through Rytkuchi, down almost to the Dome, Kekura and further to Magadan. For Kinross this road would also be interesting, since you would not be trapped in the transport of goods only in the winter period, "Kopin pointed out. - There is also a third project of strategic importance. This is a ferry across the Anadyr estuary, connecting the capital of the district and the airport. "

W. Mourley-Jepson expressed interest in the proposal of the governor, assessing the prospects and significance of projects for the region.
