Miner to Double Output

Raspadskaya will pay in excess of $1 billion to more than double output in five years, it said Tuesday.

The company plans $976 million of capital spending and $54.8 million for maintenance through 2015. Output will reach 18.5 million tons in 2015, up from 7.2 million last year.

The producer of coal for steelmaking fell from Russia's second to fifth biggest after blasts at its main mine that killed 90 people in May. It shut its main mine for seven months and halted exports after the explosions. The company plans to resume shipments abroad this year.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
