Gold miners in the Magadan Region increased precious metal production, despite coronavirus restrictions. Since the beginning of the season, 13,03 tons of gold have been mined in the region.

Now restrictions due to patients with coronavirus remain only in one artel - "Status". Due to the pandemic, the plans for the extraction of the artel did not change, while the cost of gold increased by about 25%.

According to the press service of the regional government, most of the total production is ore gold - 11,623 tons, miners mined 1,407 tons in placers. The increase in volumes amounted to about 238 kg.

Among the regions in terms of production, the Ten'kinsky urban district is the leader, where 8,58 tons of ore gold were mined. The Yagodninsky region became the leader on placers with a result of 618 kg, in the Susuman region a little less was mined - 564 kg. 

In total, according to the plan this year, 46 tons of precious metal are to be mined in the Magadan Region. After the commissioning of the Natalkinsky and Yolochka deposits, the production level will increase to 50 tons.
