Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine helps southern Kuzbass prepare for heating season

The company has allocated over 50 thousand tonnes of coal to Myski and Mezhdurechensk residents

Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine has a program that provides coal to some of their region’s more vulnerable residents free of charge. This year, there were 300 beneficiaries in the Myskovsky Urban District.  The recipients are large and single-parent families with children that do not receive federal or regional aid for purchasing fuel, as well as retirees with incomes less than 150% of the minimum subsistence level, and people in difficult life situations. Each family received four tonnes of coal.

The program also provides coal to the Myskovsky Urban District at rates lower than those set by the Kuzbass Regional Electricity Commission. This year, more than 36,000 tonnes of T-grade coal were sent to meet Myski’s municipal and residential needs. Another 14,000 tonnes were allocated for Mezhdurechensk residents.

“We’re always ready to lend a helping hand. Winters in Siberia are harsh. Sometimes the thermometer drops below 40°C. Therefore, it’s necessary to work together to make it warm and cozy in private houses, apartment buildings, hospitals, nursery schools, and schools,” said Andrey Borshchevich, General Director of Open-Pit Mine Kiyzassky.

Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine has also shipped 150 tonnes of free coal to public facilities in the Myskovsky Urban District this year. “Thanks to the support of the company, a paramedic station, St. Andrew’s Church, a community center, and village halls received coal. We’re grateful to the company for its help in preparing settlements in the Myskovsky Urban District for heating season,” said Evgeny Timofeev, head of the Myskovsky Urban District.

For reference:

Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine has been providing coal to the residents of the Myskovsky Urban District on a charity basis since 2016. Over 200,000 tonnes of coal have been shipped over 5 years.

All employees of Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine living in private housing are allocated 7.8 tonnes of coal for the heating season free of charge.
