Following the Alardinskaya mine, two more Raspadskaya Coal Company mines have reached their annual output target in advance.
The first is the Yerunakovskaya-VIII mine. Since the start of the year the miners have extracted 2.5 million tons of coal.
In December a new long face (48-7) will be commissioned. It will help extract up to 3 million tons of coal next year.
The Uskovskaya mine is the third Raspadskaya enterprise to have completed the annual output goal. 2.6 million tons of coal were mined from the long faces 50-20 and 50-22.
From 2021 the mine intends to increase coal output to 3.5 million tons. (Ukrainian metal)
