Gold production in Kamchatka increased by 20%

The head of the Kamchatka Region, Vladimir Ilyukhin, summing up the work of the regional government in 2013, reported that the volume of gold production in the region increased by 20%.

“We pay tremendous attention to this sector of the economy, since the mineral resource complex is one of the most promising areas for the development of the Kamchatka economy,” Ilyukhin added. The regional leadership is currently working on the introduction of incentive mechanisms and tax incentives for industrialists. The draft of a new regional law on measures to support enterprises operating in the mining industry is already ready and should be presented at the next session, the governor's press service reports.

Industrialists began to actively invest in the development of production, including in the exploration and construction of new processing facilities: “It's nice that mining companies are increasing their presence in Kamchatka. In particular, Interminerals, which manages the Kamchatka Gold enterprise, as well as Sigma, transfer their head offices to the peninsula and intend to actively develop existing production, including in the northern regions of the region, ”Ilyukhin commented.

In addition, the situation with the enterprise “Geotechnology” is gradually improving, which this year has almost completely ceased its production activities, and many-million wage arrears have accumulated before the employees of the enterprise.

“The company has changed its owner, who promises to pay off wage arrears by the end of the summer and start production again after a long period of inactivity,” the head of the region added.
