This was stated on February 27 by the general director of the Kolmar Management Company, Sergei Tsiviliev, during a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Kremlin press service reported.
Tsivilev reported to the President that in 2017 the Company produced 4.5 million tons of coal, now they have bought a lot of equipment, and the plan for 2018 is to produce 6.5 million tons of coal.

"We have, in a short time, thanks to the tremendous efforts of our team, developed two ore mining and processing complexes, we are now rapidly building a terminal in the Khabarovsk Territory, preparing a repair and production base that will become the basis for the development of not only South Yakutia but the entire Far East. This all should be realized by the end of 2021, and then we will become the number one premium coking coal producer in Russia," confirmed Tsivilev.
"How many employees do you have?" asked the President. "Today, three thousand people work," the head of Kolmar replied.
