The Natalkinskoye field’s gold reserves exceed to 31.6 million ounces, while its resources are 59.7 million ounces. Its projected annual ore and gold capacity are 10 million tonnes and about 500,000 ounces respectively. The field will be launched June-August, 2015. Gold producer Polyus Gold owns the license for the field’s development.
Mechel, which is on the verge of bankruptcy, plans to launch the Elga field’s first stage with projected annual capacity of 11.7 million tonnes of coal by 2017 with the investments standing at about $5 billion, while the company’s net debt amounts to $8.3 billion.
Dmitriyev also said that the fund expects an undisclosed Russian retailer to hold its initial public offering by the end of this year at the Moscow Exchange.
