Trans-Baikal Territory (Bystrinskoye Mining Company)
In 2016, the Group mined 1,893 kt of balance gold-iron-copper ores at Bystrinskoye Field.
The Bugdainskoye molybdenum deposit is located in the Alexandrovo-Zavodsky District of Trans-Baikal Territory. Geological exploration of the Bugdainskoye Field sought to prepare it for commercial development. In 2007, the State Reserves Commission confirmed the availability of B + C1 + C2 reserves. In 2010–2012, the Company conducted an engineering survey of the Bugdainsky Mining and Processing Plant with a special focus on access roads and facilities along with laboratory research capacities. 2013 saw the launch of the development project on the Bugdainskoye Field. In 2014, faced with low international molybdenum prices, the subsoil user suspended its right to develop the Bugdainskoye Field for three years.
