16 february 2017
Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Natural Resource Usage has issued a final positive ecological survey report on ALROSA's Upper Munskoye diamond field.
"The commission made a clear adequate conclusion on the main characteristics of the diamond field, as well as natural features of the territory. According to the document, there are no species listed in the Red Book in this area. In addition, the commission selected a list of measures to prevent possible negative impacts on the environment and approved measures for soil remediation," says Deputy Environmental Protection Chief Engineer at Udachny deposit Alexander Fedorov. "The positive ecological survey report is one of the permits needed to begin the field work at the deposit. We also plan to obtain additional series of permits and licenses for the operation of various facilities in the area."
Project documentation has been developed and approved to begin diamond production at Polar and Magnetic pipes of the Upper Munskoye diamond field. The depth of ore mining will reach 400 meters. It involves extracting all the resource within the area's borders.
