Nordgold has received positive results from the preliminary economic assessment of the Tokko project in Yakutia. Experts confirmed the potential for creating a new gold mining enterprise in the south-west of the region: 14 new jobs will be created here in 800 years.

According to the press service of the Nordgold company, 14 years is the mine operation period. The future enterprise is located 13 km from the existing enterprises of the company - projects Gross and Taborny. Geological exploration work is being completed here.

Within the framework of the Tokko project, the Tokkinskoye and Roman deposits will be developed. It is planned to conduct mining in an open way. When it reaches its design capacity, this project will become the second largest in terms of production among the company's facilities. Its reserves will allow producing 160 thousand ounces of gold per year.

This year, the project also plans to begin a feasibility study for Tocco, and the construction of the mine will begin in 2022. The company plans to receive the first gold bar from this deposit in 2024.

According to Vitaly Zagan, executive director of Nordgold's enterprises in Yakutia, the Tokko mine will create comfortable working conditions, just like other gold mining projects of the company. For many years, employees will be able to expect a decent salary. Now shift workers from Yakutia, Chelyabinsk, Khakassia, Transbaikalia, Altai and other regions work at the company's enterprises.
