Mr. Roman Kopin, Governor of the Chukotka Autonomous District discussed plans for the development of the river port in the village of Anyuisk with representatives of the “NTService” company, a resident of the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation.
The company is implementing a program to construct a port hub in the village of Anyuysk. This hub will support the delivery of goods as part of the implementation of the largest investment project in the region – the “Baimsky GOK” (mining and processing facility) for the development of the Baimsky porphyry copper deposit in the Bilibinsky district of the Chukotka Autonomous District.
“The port has been expanded, reinforced with people and equipment,” Governor Roman Kopin said in his Telegram channel. According to the governor, “Chukotsnab” is preparing to renovate the tank farm in Anyuisk and to expand its capacity. This will make it possible to use the port of Anyuisk as a hub for the delivery of large volumes of fuel.
Remarks. The construction of the Baim Mining Facility in Chukotka began in 2020. The Baimskoye deposit is the world’s largest in terms of gold (64.3 million ounces (2 million kg) and copper (23 million tons) reserves. The mining and processing facility will be launched by 2026, and will reach its design capacity by 2028. By this time, facility should produce 250,000 tons of copper and 400,000 ounces of gold per year.
