60% of ALROSA’s investments are used for diamond mining development – Sergey Ivanov
The Company invested a substantial amount – almost RUB 5.5 billion – into the construction of Udachny underground mine. Persistent efforts were also taken to support existing facilities at Mir, Internatsionalny, and Aikhal underground mines.
The Company started developing a new primary diamond deposit – Zarya. It is one of ALROSA’s largest investment projects and its development guarantees loading of existing capacities of Aikhal Mining and Processing Division for at least two decades ahead.
Mir underground mine reached its design capacity of 1 million tons of ore per year, its proved reserves will be sufficient until 2057.
