Almazy Anabara (a subsidiary of ALROSA) have summed up the washing season of 2018, which has lasted from the twenties of May to the 24th of September. According to the Company’s data, over 5.4 million carats of rough diamonds were mined, which is a record mining level throughout the Company’s operation. The production target was exceeded by 9 per cent. Indicators of mining operations, carried out mostly in winter, were fully achieved as well — the Company mined and processed about 14 million cubic meters of rock mass.

“Such results were achieved due to, without limitation, the advanced diamond-bearing sand processing technology. In particular, we have upgraded the X-ray luminescent separation line to decrease workload of dense-media separation units at the Bolshaya Kuonamka deposit and to increase capacity of grading units,” said Pavel Marinychev, CEO of Almazy Anabara.

He also noted that favourable weather conditions essentially helped to achieve positive dynamics, as the production time at placer mines was extended. But, most importantly, concerted efforts of all services involved are the main factor of success.

Almazy Anabara continued development of the new promising sites in 2018.

“We opened the new Khara-Mas site in tundra zone this year. In accordance with the results of the completed the washing season, we can confirm that the site turned out to be promising, and all of its planned indicators were confirmed by the final results,” said Pavel Marinychev.

The mineral resource base of Almazy Anabara is constantly developing — so, a subsidiary of ALROSA got six new fields for disposal in 2017.

Production will be expanded at the existing sites as well. The Company plans to increase production at the deposits of Ebelyakh group by 1 million carats next year. According to Marinychev, some preliminary work has been carried out for this purpose — the tank parks of fuel and lubricant materials have been expanded, new special-purpose equipment has been ordered, rotation camps are being developed.

Almazy Anabara started ancillary mining of gold in 2017. Over 80 kg of gold were mined last year, and 113 kg of gold — in 2018.
