Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine to Allocate 20K Tonnes of ‘Social Coal’ to Myski Residents in 2022

At present, the coal company is the only one in Kuzbass that provides fuel at below-market prices

Next year, Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine will continue to provide ‘social coal’ to private citizens in the Myskovsky Urban District. Agreements have already been reached on further cooperation between the enterprise and the municipal administration. At the same time, despite a significant increase in coal prices in Russia and the world, the management of the Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine has decided not to raise the cost of its fuel and to continue to sell it to the town at below-market prices.

According to the chairman of the Regional Energy Commission, Dmitry Malyuta, Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine is the only coal mining company in Kuzbass that sells its product for such a low price: “The situation with coal in the world is unstable. Our region exports coal in huge volume, but it’s very important to provide the local population with fuel as well. For several years now, Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine has been selling coal at prices that are affordable for residents. It is very important that coal companies do not inflate prices and, thus, help Myski residents get through the autumn-winter period safely.”

Myski’s residents are provided with high-quality fuel  which is the best for furnace heating due to its low ash content and high energy value. This coal makes it possible to comfortably heat homes, even when it’s -40° outside. Myski Urban District head Yevgeny Timofeev noted that Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine has been a reliable partner for the town since its first day of operations: “There are a lot of private houses in Myski where people live in large families with small children and elderly relatives. Our task is to ensure that none of the townspeople freeze in the cold Siberian winter. People buy coal in the summer and autumn, and we try not only to ensure that there is enough fuel stored in the warehouses, but also to make the price of it as affordable for Myski residents as possible. Among other things, I am grateful to Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine for consistently taking part in the city’s social programs and helping us to survive our long frosty winters.”

Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine is the only supplier of ‘social’ coal in Myski and Mezhdurechensk. This year, the company has already shipped 18,408 tonnes of fuel to the Myski Urban District, and another 2,500 tonnes will be shipped by the end of December. In total, 37,000 tonnes of fuel will have been sent to provide for the town’s municipal and household needs. In addition, 300 residents received charity coal from the company for free in 2021 – a total of 1,200 tonnes. These are retired people, poor families with children, and residents who have fallen into a difficult life situation. This year, Kiyzassky Open-Pit Mine has donated another 280 tonnes of coal to rural clubs in the villages of Chuvashka, Chuazas, Podobas, and Kazas, as well as paramedic stations in the villages of Chuvashka and Berenzas, and the church of St. Andrew Pervozvanny.
