EVRAZ: Uskovskaya Miners Produce 2,000,000,000 kg of Coal

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, October 26, 2017. Miners from EVRAZ Holdings Uskovskaya Mine have extracted 2,000,000,000 kg of coal since the start of the year so far, EVRAZ Holding Siberias press service reports.

This valuable GZh coal came from two long faces, the old 50-10 and the new one 50-08 that got launched in May. The latter has already reached its projected capacity (up to 300,000,000 kg of coal a month).

Oleg Moskalenkos team proved extremely productive: every miner does some 3,700,000 kg a month on average. This is possible due to a range of security measures and efficient use of equipment. Miners rely on automation wherever possible, the press service says.

Moskalenkos team was the third one to reach the 2,000,000,000-kg output figure this year. Albert Yamaliyevs team from Alardinskaya Mine and Rustam Muminovs team from Raspadskaya Mine set the same record in September.

Uskovskaya Mine gets managed by Raspadskaya Coal Company that also runs EVRAZ Holdings Raspadskaya Mine and Yuzhkuzbassugol.
