Vladimir Ilyukhin and Viktor Vekselberg discussed the development of the mining industry in Kamchatka

Governor of Kamchatka Territory Vladimir Ilyukhin and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Renova Group of Companies Viktor Vekselberg discussed the development of the mining industry in Kamchatka, the press service of the head of the region reports. The meeting, which was also attended by Evgeny Olkhovik, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Gold of Kamchatka, was held as part of the Far East 2014 investment forum.

“By 2020, we plan to increase the volume of gold production in Kamchatka to 15-20 tons,” noted Vladimir Ilyukhin. - Forecasted reserves of gold in the region are large - up to 1000 tons. We are just starting to develop the industry. I would like the mining industry to become one of the main sectors of the regional economy, along with the fishing industry. "

“For us, Kamchatka is a long-term perspective of work,” said Viktor Vekselberg. - This is a beautiful land and a reasonable balance in development is needed here - it certainly needs to be made industrial, but with the preservation of large territories in the status of reserves, wildlife preserves, with special modes of use.

During the meeting, the head of the region and the head of the Renova group of companies discussed issues of supporting projects in the mining industry, including the possibility of removing infrastructure barriers.

Vladimir Ilyukhin stressed that it is necessary to look for new methods of support for priority investment projects in the mining industry, including in terms of creating the necessary infrastructure.

“Lack of infrastructure in remote northern regions makes it difficult to implement projects that are significant for the economy of the territory. This issue is no less significant than tax incentives and preferences, ”said the governor of the Kamchatka Territory.

Currently, a subsidiary of the Renova group of companies, JSC Zoloto Kamchatka, is mining gold at three deposits in the Kamchatka Territory. Geological exploration is underway at 5 more fields. In addition, work is underway to build the largest mining and processing plant in Kamchatka at the Ametistovoe deposit in the Penzhinsky District.

Viktor Vekselberg noted that up to 1200 people are employed in construction and maintenance of deposits in the Penzhinsky district. There are not enough local specialists, so the company is forced to attract employees, including those from other regions of Russia. According to him, now employees working at the field live in the rotational settlement.

The head of the Renova group of companies and the regional governor discussed the possibility of building the third stage of a residential microdistrict in the village of Tilichiki with all the necessary infrastructure.
