KHABAROVSK, December 14 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s Amur Region produced 26 tonnes of gold over eleven months of the current year, which is by almost 50 percent more than it produced in a similar period of past year, the regional ministry of natural resources reported on Wednesday.
“The Amur Region is behind only the Krasnoyarsk Territory in production of gold,” the ministry said.
The success was made due to highly productive work of the Petropavlovsk group of companies. The Berezitovy and Pioner mines reached full capacity. The Berezitovy produced three tonnes of the metal, which is by one tonne more, than it had produced over the entire year of 2010. The second line of the Malomyrsky mine went operational.
The sector’s experts forecast that “production of gold in the Amur Region will be growing dynamically.” Albynsky mine begins production. Its first production line went operational in November 2011. In 2006, geologists of the Petropavlovsk company opened a gold ore deposit there. In 2009, construction of the enterprise started in the backwoods of taiga. The capacity of the enterprise’s first line is two million tonnes of ore a year, and the second line, which is due in 2012, will double the production. The Albynsky mine plans to produce four tonnes of gold in 2012.
