Discussion themes:
The bulk of existing precious metals and diamond output along with the production of some other
essential solid minerals (SM) are concentrated in the North-Eastern Russia. The region's harsh climatic
conditions are one of the major obstacles to sustainable development of existing mining operations, not to
mention the establishment of new ones. Due to the limited availability of mining projects in other parts of
Russia, interest to the projects located in the north-eastern part of the country is rising. The seminar will
offer a unique opportunity for Russian and International companies to share their experience and the most
efficient ways of overcoming these difficulties and will help participants make strategic and operational
decisions to succeed in their business development in this region.
Issues proposed for the discussion:
The analysis of the new mining projects development in the North East of Russia.
The typical mining projects in the North East of Russia and challenges.
Technological and technical risks of the projects and ways of their minimisation.
Infrastructure challenges and solutions.
Environmental and social aspects of the mining and mineral exploration in the North East of Russia.
Challenges of financing projects.
