In the Irkutsk region, gold mining enterprises in the first quarter decreased their volumes by 21% compared to the same period last year. The decrease was due to the drop in results at the Vysochaishy fields.

As the NEDRADV, from January to March, 2 kg of gold were produced. PJSC "Vysochaishy" produced 987,3 kg of precious metal (444,5% less), and at its structural enterprise - 56 kg (389,4% less). What is the reason for the decline is not explained.

Mining operations at the ore gold deposits are also carried out by the enterprises "Druza" and "Polyus Verninskoe". For three months, Druza produced 257 kg of precious metal (an increase of 14%), Polyus Verninskoe - 1 kg (a decrease of 896,4%).

Placer gold mining will start in the Angara region in May. By the end of the year, it is planned to extract 22 164 kg of precious metal in the region.
