Kemerovo

The enterprises of СС "Kuzbassrazrezugol" (UMMC Group) have achieved key production performances during the first quarter of this year.
From January to March the company's enterprises produced 10.8 million tons of coal (including coking coal – apprx. 1.5 million tons), which is almost 300 thousand tons more than in the first quarter of last year. The volume of overburden was 80.1 million m3 of rock mass. The production target for the 1st quarter of the year was exceeded: for extraction - by 1.9%, for overburden - by 2.2%. 
"Baikaimskaya mine produced the coal in excess of the plan, that is over 85,000 tons. It occurred due to the effective operation of the new TIANDY cleaning station installed at the enterprise last year," comments Victor Falaleev, Head of Production Department of the CC "Kuzbassrazrezugol". “The company started Q2 as planned. We are now putting into operation season-related plants for extracting coal from a diluted ROM (rock mass, in which the content of the useful substance (in this case, coal) is reduced due to the high rock content), which will increase the coal production in Q2 and Q3. "
The coal delivery plan is already overfulfilled from the beginning of the year. About 10 million tons of coal were supplied to customers, which is 500 thousand tons more than in the same period of the last year. At the same time, the increase in the scope of supplies has affected both the foreign and domestic markets: 2.9 million tons of coal were supplied to domestic consumers, whilst 7.1 million tons of coal - for export (5% and 6% surplus respectively as compared with Q1 2016)
Almost 9.6 million tons of coal were processed (9.2 million tons were planned ) at the company’s plants and concentrators over the past period. 88.4% of coal was processed, which is 15% higher than the Kuzbass average.
