Kimkano-Sutarsky GOK may start production of hot briquetted iron (HBI). The plans for the construction of additional capacities have already been announced by the investor - Petropavlovsk-Ferrous Metallurgy LLC (owned by IRC Ltd). 

According to the portal NEDRADV, iron ore concentrate has been produced by the GOK since 2017. New products may be in demand among the shipbuilding companies of the Far East: the Zvezda plant, the Amur shipyard, the Khabarovsk shipyard and others.

Preliminary production of iron ore concentrate will increase to 3,5-4 million tons per year. For this, three deposits will be put into operation at once: Sutarskoye, Kostenginskoye (EAO) and Garinskoye (Amur Oblast). The mining and processing enterprise now produces about 3,2 million tons of concentrate, with 65 percent iron content.

Development of infrastructure and gasification of the region can help to increase production volumes. Earlier in 2019, due to a lack of funds for gasification, the Garinsky field development project was excluded from the priority ones.
