Norilsk Ups Investment 7%

Norilsk Nickel, Russia's largest mining company, plans to increase capital spending by at least 7 percent in 2012 as it develops a copper project in East Siberia and explores for new resources.

Investment will exceed $3 billion in 2012, Norilsk said in a statement on its web site. The figure compares with the $2.8 billion in investments the company planned for 2011.

Norilsk plans to invest 7.5 billion rubles ($233 million) to develop the Chita copper project in East Siberia and spend $100 million on geological exploration, it said.


… 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.
