UrBC, Yekaterinburg, November 7, 2018. EVRAZ Holding’s Tyva-based Mezhegeyugol Coal Company’s miners (Section 1 team, run by manager Andrey Balek and foreman Alexei Perchuk) did 1,731m worth of headwork in October, thus setting a new national record, EVRAZ Holding’s press service reports.

Once their record-setting shift was over, the miners received a perpetual trophy and special thank-you letters in the course of a solemn ceremony. The symbolic piece of coal was handed over to Mezhegeyugol Coal Company’s Director Alexander Lukinykh.

‘Mezhegeyugol’s production record was made possible due to the concerted efforts of the entire staff team and their competent director. Our miners proved highly organized, and their output is a great benchmark to go by for all of EVRAZ Holding’s stoping/headwork teams,’ says EVRAZ Vice President and head of Coal Division Sergey Stepanov.

EVRAZ Miners managed to do so well on the job thanks to infallible mining appliances, clever organization of labor, and some successful experimenting: they adopted a new mining technique in which one mining machine worked in a quintet with two self-propelled trolleys and two roof-bolters. The ancillary divisions of the mine ensures an uninterrupted supply of necessary stuffs into the mine face, with all the teams working in unison. The miners were thus able to do 60 to 70 m worth of headwork every day.
