The need to build the sixth mine was supported by Coordinating Council under Plenipotentiary in the Siberian Federal District
Coordinating Council for Social and Economic Development of the Baikal region under Russian Federation Presidential Plenipotentiary in the Siberian Federal District decided to support the construction of Mine No.6 of Priargunsky Industrial Mining and Chemical Union.
The participants of the meeting in Chita were unanimous in that the development of uranium mining is an integral part of creating a Priority Development Territory (PDT) in Krasnokamensk. "Krasnokamensk is a real PDT. This is a self-contained city: we have industry, agriculture, and young population there. We will pay particular attention to the development of Krasnokamensk. Its prospects are much better than in many other cities and areas of the Baikal region ", - said at the meeting the Plenipotentiary of the President Nikolai Rogozhkin.
The Coordinating Council recommends to include in the Federal Targeted Program "Economic and Social Development of the Far East and the Baikal region for the period up to 2025" funds for the construction of engineering infrastructure of Mine No.6 of PJSC PIMCU. This proposal was made at the meeting by General Director of ARMZ Uranium Holding Vladimir Verkhovtsev. It was supported by the Plenipotentiary, as well as Governor of Zabaykalsky Krai Konstantin Ilkovsky and other participants in the meeting.
Mine No.6 construction project was created for the development of Argunskoye and Zherlovoye deposits of Streltsovskoye uranium ore field. Mineable reserves are about 38 thousand tons. Construction is scheduled to start in 2016, to be completed in 2022.
