Development of the Udokan field started ahead of schedule

Development of the Udokan deposit began ahead of schedule - the timing of the start of capital mining with associated ore mining at the Zapadny open pit was postponed from 2021 to 2020. The Baikal Mining Company will develop two sections of the open pit as part of the first stage of the Udokan development project.

This year, production of 335 thousand tons of associated ore and more than 800 thousand meters is forecasted3 rock formations. During the preparatory work at Zapadnoye, before the opening of the open pit, it is planned to extract over 1,1 million tons of ore.

According to Valery Kazikayev, Chairman of the Board of Directors of BGK, this is an event that the industry has been waiting for 70 years since its opening. Capital mining operations envisage "opening" of the Udokan deposit in order to open access from the surface to mineral deposits.
