Gold mining company has become a new resident of TOR in Kamchatka

Special project TORA and Free Port

The new resident of TOR "Kamchatka" became JSC "Amethystvoe" (included in "Gold of Kamchatka"). The company will build an underground mine and modernize the mine at the Ametistovoe deposit. Investments in the project from 2019 to 2027 will be about four billion rubles a year.

The basis for obtaining resident status was the signing of an investment agreement with JSC Far East Development Corporation. According to the press service of Zolota Kamchatka, the start of the preparation of the document was given in September 2018 at the Eastern Economic Forum, when the parties and the government of the Kamchatka region signed a tripartite memorandum of intent.

Since 2015, Ametistovoe mine has been processing ore mined at the deposit of the same name using the open pit method. According to the Director General of Zolota Kamchatka, Alexander Golovanov, it will soon be necessary to switch to an underground mining facility.

As noted by the Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Kamchatka Territory, Marina Saturday, the launch of the enterprise will create new jobs on the peninsula around 500, and tax revenues up to 2028 can be more than six billion rubles. In addition, the construction of the mine and the modernization of the GOK will give an additional impetus to the development of the northern part of Kamchatka. By the 2020-2021 years, the region will be able to reach 10-12 tons of gold per year. Now about five tons are mined on the peninsula.
