Mining of platinum at the Kondyor deposit in Khabarovsk Territory
Mining of alluvial platinum and prospects for implementation of Kondyor Rudny project
Implementation

Project Implementation

The man-made part of platinum placer is currently being mined in Kondyor river bed.

Exploration work is in progress: a large platinum ore deposit containing PGM and copper was discovered inside the Kondyor crater.

Development of Anomalny and Yuzhny areas of this deposit within Kondyor Rudny project will significantly increase platinum and palladium production.

Deposit development prospects depend on market conditions.

The prospects for increasing platinum and palladium production are related to implementation of Kondyor Rudny project and dredging development
