The anchor resident of the South Yakutia ASEZ - Kolmar Management Company - launched the first stage of the Inaglinskaya coal mine, the largest in Russia. The Inaglinskaya-2 enrichment plant also started operating, with a processing capacity of six million tons of coal per year.

The commissioning of the facilities will allow Russia to confidently gain a foothold in the top three world leaders in the production and export of coking coal. The Inaglinskaya mine is considered the main ambitious project of the country's coal industry, since there have been no such construction projects since Soviet times.

According to the press service of the government of Yakutia, the industrial site of the processing plant is combined with the surface complex of the Inaglinskaya mine. This reduces the cost of transporting raw coal from mine to factory.

The Inaglinskaya-2 plant plans to enrich scarce coal grades, which are valuable technological raw materials for ferrous metallurgy. Coal concentrate will be supplied to the domestic market, as well as to the countries of the Asia-Pacific region.

Access tracks and a railway station were built at Inaglinskaya-2 to receive empty wagons and send loaded trains. There were also installed two longwalls with coal mining by the method of chamber-and-pillar mining. This technology can significantly reduce the production cost of raw coal and reduce its losses.

Today the mine employs 645 miners, after the launch of the second stage, their number will increase to 1. The phased production capacity will increase to 900 million tons of coal per year.
