In 2022, the Kiyzassky opencast mine will continue to provide social coal to residents of the private sector in the Myskovsky urban district. Agreements have already been reached on further cooperation between the enterprise and the city administration. At the same time, despite the significant increase in coal prices in Russia and the world, the management of the Kiyzasskoye opencast mine decided not to raise the cost of fuel and continue to sell it at prices below market prices.
According to the Chairman of the Regional Energy Commission, Dmitry Malyuta, the Kiyzassky opencast mine is the only enterprise in Kuzbass that sells coal at such a low cost: “The situation with coal in the world is unstable. Our region is engaged in the export of coal in huge volumes, but it is very important to provide the local population with fuel. It is not the first year that the Kiyzassky opencast mine has been selling coal at prices that are affordable for residents. It is very important that the coal enterprises do not overstate their prices and thus helps the Myski to survive the autumn-winter period safely.”
Residents of Myski are provided with high quality fuel – TP brand, the best for furnace heating due to its low ash content and high calorific value. This coal, even in severe frosts down to -40°C, allows for the creation of a comfortable temperature in houses. The head of the Myskovsky urban district, Yevgeny Timofeev, commented on how the Kiyzassky opencast mine has been a reliable social partner of the city from the very first day of operation: “There are a lot of private houses in Myski where people live in large families with small children and elderly relatives. Our task is to prevent any of the townspeople from freezing in the cold Siberian winter. People buy coal in the summer and autumn, and we are trying not only to provide the necessary supply of fuel in our warehouses, but also to make the price of it as affordable as possible for the people of Myskovo.”
Kiyzassky opencast mine is the only supplier of ‘social’ coal in Myski and Mezhdurechensk. This year, the company shipped 18 408 t of fuel to the Myskovo urban district, another 2500 t will be shipped by the end of December. In total, 37 000 t of fuel were sent to meet the municipal and domestic needs of the city. Also, 300 residents in 2021 received charitable coal from the company for free – a total of 1200 t. These are pensioners, low-income families with children, citizens who have found themselves in a difficult life situation. Kiyzassky opencast mine also donated another 280 t of coal in 2021 free of charge to rural clubs in the villages of Chuvashka, Chuazas, Podobas, Kazas, paramedic points in Chuvashka and Berenzas, the church of St. Apostle Andrew the First-Called.
