2 Mining Gold in Russian Kolyma

Mining Gold in Russian Kolyma

Posted on September 29, 2015 by tim


Remember a recent posting where Sergey went to Kolyma and enjoyed beautiful views there? (If not you can see it here). So here is another report by this brilliant Russian blogger. While staying there - at Kolyma - which is famous in Russia for its large volume gold mining industries - he visited some gold producing sites and made a report on how gold is actually being mined now there. Sergey even found some gold himself! Interesting stuff.

Sergey says that modern mining of gold in Kolyma is pretty much automized. It's being mainly done with "mobile factories". However a few decades before it all was mined by hand with the help of Soviet prisoners.

Wherever Sergey travelled across Kolyma he saw dry rivers - this means that somewhere near some people blocked the stream for their gold mining operation.
