Baimsky GOK —
Unlocking the Potential
of the Far East and the Arctic

Baimskaya Area —
One of the world's largest
undeveloped copper deposits

The Baimskaya copper and porphyry area, located in the Bilibino district of the Chukotka Autonomous Region, is one of the world's largest copper deposits.

Twelve promising deposits of copper, as well as gold and silver, have been identified in the ore zone. The deposit was discovered in 1972, and active prospecting was ongoing until 1984. The project was made possible with the introduction of new technology and the provision of preferential treatment in the Russian Far East.

The Peschanka deposit, located within the Baimskaya licence area in Russia, has the JORC-standard measured, indicated, and inferred resources of 9.9 Mt of copper at an average grade of 0.39% and 16.6 Moz of gold at an average grade of 0.21 g/t

The licence area is

1300 km2

Northern Sea Route

Baimsky GOK
is a significant project in the
non-ferrous metals industry

The development of the Baimskaya ore zone deposits involves the construction of a mining and processing plant (GOK) and all relevant infrastructure. Advanced direct flotation technology will be used in the operation of the mine.

To ensure efficient sales of the Baimsky GOK's products, the necessary infrastructure will be built, including a year-round port terminal and a 428-kilometre all-weather road between the deposit and the new port for the shipment of products to the market via the Northern Sea Route.

The forecast cost of major
construction work is estimated
$8,5 billion

The annual ore processing
capacity is estimated
70 Mt

The average annual
copper production during
the first ten full years of operation
300 Kt

Baimsky GOK is a national-scale project with a development horizon of over 50 years

The project is a part of the Far East and Baikal Region Social and Economic Development Strategy until 2025 and the Chukotka Autonomous Region Social and Economic Development Strategy until 2030.
