At the end of 2019, the new Gross gold mine in Yakutia, part of the international company Nordgold, exceeded the plan for the production of precious metals, producing 8,2 tons of refined gold.

Last year, Gross confirmed its status as the flagship mine of the international gold mining company Nordgold and one of the largest modern mining enterprises in the Far East. As the executive director of Neryungri-Metallik Vitaly Zagan noted, the Gross team achieved impressive results with their effective work. There, they managed to overfulfill the initial production plan for 36 by 2019%. They predicted to produce 5,9 tons of gold, and produced more than eight tons.

“Gross achievements are evidence of the teamwork of the enterprise, the rich resource potential of the field, the success of the investments made in the project and the optimal approach to the development of the field,” said Vitaliy Zagan.

According to the company’s press service, high production results were achieved due to the expansion of ore production and processing capacities from 12 million tons per year to 14 million tons per year, as well as due to the company's quick access to planned capacity and a higher metallurgical capacity than planned retrieval.

Gross is a year-round heap leaching mine with open cast mining and a service life of about 17 years from the date of commissioning. The field is located in the south-west of Yakutia near another Nordgold mine - Taborny.
