Mining and coal washing operations

Raspadskaya consolidates EVRAZ’ Russian coal assets, which are located in the Kemerovo region and the Republic of Tuva (Russia).

Mezhdurechensk site

Raspadskaya has two operational underground coking coal mines and two open pits in Mezhdurechensk, including the Raspadskaya mine, Russia’s largest. The site produces hard coking coal (K and OS grades), semi-hard coking coal (GZh grade) and semi-soft coking coal (GZhO grade). Its coal washing plant is one of the most modern in Russia. It has low maintenance costs and is designed to process high volumes with few employees.

Novokuznetsk site

Raspadskaya has five coking coal mines in Novokuznetsk. They produce hard and semi-hard coking coal (Zh, GZh and KS grades), which is processed into high-quality concentrate (classified as HCC grade internationally). Most of this comes from the Yerunakovskaya-8 mine. At the Novokuznetsk site, Raspadskaya has two coal washing plants, which produce customised coking coal blends and pulverised coal injection (PCI) coal. The Kuznetskaya washing plant produces high-quality HCC concentrate for the domestic market. The Abashevskaya washing plant produces a wide variety of products tailored to specific customers’ needs.


In the beginning of 2020, the decision was made to halt production at the Mezhegey mine. Subsequently, in December 2021 the decision was made to resume mining operations in 2022.
