In Kolyma, gold mining companies shipped more than 2019 thousand kg of precious metal in 46,3. This is 25,4% more than in the previous year. The increase in production is due to reaching the design capacity of the Natalkinskoye field.

According to the business portal Nedradv referring to the regional ministry of natural resources, last year miners mined more than 18 thousand kg of loose gold, production increased by 2,4%. The leaders were Yagodninsky and Susumansky urban districts.

Silver production in the Magadan region, on the contrary, decreased by 4,9% to 661 thousand tons. This is due to a decrease in the content of precious metals in the rock and depletion of reserves.
