The Group’s mining operations in Khabarovsk are located at the Urgal deposit in the Bureinsky basin. The Bureinsky open pit, the Severnaya underground mine and the Pravoberezhny open pit launched in 2017 produce hard coal. This coal is washed at the Chegdomyn washing plant and a processing facility at the Bureinsky open pit, which increases its calorific value from 4,300 kcal/kg to 5,850 kcal/kg. SUEK supplies coal from Khabarovsk mines primarily to China and South Korea. The proximity of the Urgal assets to our Vanino Bulk Terminal represents a significant competitive advantage in terms of ease and cost of transportation. Mines in this region also supply coal to Russian power generation customers located in the Khabarovsk and Primorye regions.
