Taryn business unit of GV Gold — Joint Stock Company “Taryn Gold Mining Company” (TGMC, JSC), is the operator of the project.

Productive capacity of Stage 1 of the plant is 700 kt of ore p.a. After the plant attains its full capacity, the annual gold production will total 2.7 t (87 koz) of gold. Within the framework of the project implementation, the Company has obtained a state subsidy for construction of the infrastructural facilities.

After the Taryn Mine processing plant attains its full capacity, the annual tax payments to all levels of the budget of the Russian Federation will total RUB 500 million, 450 additional jobs will be created, financing of the region’s social programs will be expanded.

Chairman of the Board of Directors Sergey Dokuchaev:

“In just two years, in severe climatic conditions, the Company has built the largest mining enterprise in the Oimyakon province — the Taryn Mine. I’d like to express my sincere gratitude to the team of TGMC and GV Gold for its high professionalism and successful implementation of the project!

Commissioning of the enterprise has expanded the Group’s productive capacities to 8 Mt of ore p.a. We are not going to rest on our laurels: next thing on the agenda is a commissioning of the Ugakhan Mine in the Irkutsk Region and development of the new projects. By 2020, we are planning to ramp up the annual gold production to 10 t (320 koz) of gold.”
