    UMMC: A 250-million tonne of coal mined at Kedrovskiy open-pit mine by Kuzbassrazrezugol

    May 31, 2022 - Russia Business News


      May 30 -- UMMC issued the following news release:

      The miners of the branch "Kedrovsky coal mine" of the management company "Kuzbassrazrezugol" (an enterprise of the raw material complex of the UMMC) solemnly mined a symbolic jubilee 250 million ton of coal from the moment the enterprise was put into operation.

      “This beautiful significant date - 250 million tons of coal - can be converted into wagons, into kilowatts, but I would translate it into the fate of those people who connected their lives with this particular cedar ton. And today we need to preserve the traditions that our veterans laid down, multiply them with new traditions and knowledge, and move on!” Elena Drobina, Director of Kuzbassrazrezugol Management Company JSC, emphasized in her address to the participants of the solemn event.

      The honorary right to extract the commemorative ton was entrusted to the hydraulic excavator operator Sergey Kashinsky and the driver Sergey Batluk. In recognition of the professionalism of the team, today the cut was presented with a Commemorative Address from the Governor of the Kuzbass-Kemerovo region Sergey Tsivilev, which was included in the treasury of the company's awards.

      The Kedrovsky coal mine has a rich history. It was put into operation in 1954 with a design capacity of 300 thousand tons of coal per year. In 1959, for the first time in the region, a walking excavator ESH-6/60 with a bucket capacity of six cubic meters was mounted and put into operation. In 1961, the miners of the enterprise produced the 10 millionth ton of "black gold". In 1982, the Kedrovskaya concentrating plant was put into operation at the mine. In 2006, one of the first holders of the new highest award of the Kemerovo region - "Hero of Kuzbass" - was Nikolai Dorofeev, Honored Miner of the Russian Federation, foreman of the enterprise's excavator team.

      On November 29, 2013, for the first time in the world history, the Olympic flame visited the coal enterprise: the Kedrovskiy mine hosted the stage of the Sochi-2014 Olympic Torch Relay. In 2021, the enterprise appeared on the tourist map of Russia - it was included in the regional brand route "Kuzbass. Fire in the Heart”, approved by the Federal Tourism Agency.

      The Kedrovsky coal mine is equipped with the most productive equipment and the latest technologies that meet all international standards. In February 2021, the EKG-35 excavator number 2, the most powerful in the line of electric mining excavators of domestic heavy engineering, was put into operation at the Kedrovsky open pit. At the end of 2022, the miners of the enterprise plan to extract 5.1 million tons of coal.
