Zapolyarnaya mine, a part of Vorkutaugol, has commissioned a new long face at the Troynoy layer.
Its reserves are estimated at 1.12 million tons of coking coal.
The breakage face 1312 has been put into operation 4 months earlier than planned.
Having commissioned the new long face, Zapolyarnaya has become the only Vorkutaugol mine to operate at three faces at the same time.
The new face will be in development until May 2021. (Ukrainian metal)
