Sovrudnik LLC completes the construction of a GOK at the Vysokoye field

Since 2018, Sovrudnik LLC has been implementing the investment project “Construction of a mining and processing plant (GOK) for gold production on the basis of the Vysokoe deposit in the North Yenisei district of the Krasnoyarsk Territory”. The project creates 1.5 thousand jobs. The construction project of the plant is included in the KIP “Yenisei Siberia”.

The purpose of the project is the industrial development of the Vysokoye gold deposit, the extraction of ore by open–pit mining, its processing at a gold extraction factory directly at the deposit to obtain the final product in the form of ligature gold.

Ruslan Kurbanov, General Director of Sovrudnik LLC: “Due to its large scale, the project is being implemented in several stages. By 2025, the project will be brought to the production capacity of the first stage of the ZIF: it is 4 million tons of ore processing and the production of 4 tons of gold. The second phase of the ZIF will be built by 2027. From 2028, the total volume of ore processing at ZIF will amount to 6 million tons of ore, which will produce at least 6 tons of gold. At the same time, the mining complex will be developing all these years.”

The large-scale project is being implemented in conditions of considerable distance from areas with developed infrastructure. Over the past years, 80 km of highways, 2 bridges over the Teya and Uvolga rivers, 100 km of power lines, 110 kV transformer substations have been built in the conditions of the northern taiga and difficult terrain.

In 2023, a quarry was commissioned at the Vysokoe deposit, and gold ore mining started.
