Ilovaisk mine resumes winning coal

A new longwall face at the Ilovaisk mine of the Torezantratsit state enterprise has been put into operation today (on November 22). Coal, stocks of which amount to about 250 thousand tons, will be supplied to the Starobeshevo power station, a correspondent states. 

“We have put into operation the third longwall face this year,” said acting General Director of the Torezantratsit state enterprise Sergei Lubovenkov 

Besides, we are planning to launch a new longwall face at the Zarya mine and by the end of January there will have been launched a longwall face at the Shakhtyorskaya-Glubokaya. This year we should put into operation five longwall faces. 

In early July, miners of the Ilovaisk mine were left without winning соal face lines and proceed to prepare a new face.
