On December 13, 2019, Polyus Aldan completed the annual gold production plan, reaching figures significantly higher than previous years. The increase in volumes was facilitated by a steady increase in productivity - more than 50 percent over the past 4.5 years.
Aleksey Noskov, Managing Director of Polyus Aldan, notes: “This is a natural result of planned activities aimed at the development of production, the implementation of large-scale technical re-equipment programs. In recent years, these works have been carried out especially actively with the direct participation of the Polyus management company.
The equipment was updated by more than 70 percent, which resulted in that the processing at the Kuranakh gold recovery plant in 2018 amounted to more than 5.4 million tons of ore per year, although in 2015 this figure was at 3.8 million tons.”
Modernization continues at all production stages: at the Kuranakh mine, in the motor vehicle workshop, at the heap leaching site, commissioned last year and today it opens up new perspectives for the enterprise.
The year 2019 is also significant for Polyus Aldan in that the field of labor protection, industrial safety and the environment has received great development. The priority of the company is to work only with the unconditional observance of Russian legal requirements, and the implementation of international best practices. Polyus Aldan has successfully passed certification according to two international standards: ISO 45001: 2018 - occupational health and safety and ISO 14001: 2015 - environmental safety.
