The diamond mining sector added about 2 billion rubles to the Arkhangelsk Province’s budget

03 december 2019

AGD DIAMONDS and Severalmaz, which mine diamonds in the Mezensky and Primorsky districts of the Arkhangelsk Province, contributed 2,366,553 thousand rubles to the regional budget in the form of a mining tax, as per a report in ARCTICINFO.
This shows an increase of 16.24% compared to last year.
According to the report, during the nine months of 2019, both companies extracted a total of 5 million tons of ore of which 6.77 million carats of diamonds were produced.
Despite a decrease in ore production this year, diamond recovery showed growth due to the beginning of mining ore with high grade.
Thus, AGD DIAMONDS, which is developing the Grib diamond deposit has produced a number of specials this year, four of which exceed 100 carats. In particular, unique diamonds weighing 222.09 and 127.34 carats were mined in May, and in July a crystal weighing 212.53 carats was unearthed. In October, the company mined an exclusive gem-quality diamond weighing 104.12 carats.
