Location and History
Gross is Nordgold’s new flagship mine in Russia. Launched in September 2018, it is the third greenfield project developed by Nordgold from exploration to production over the last six years, cementing the Company’s position as a leading developer of world-class gold mines.
The mine is located in the southwestern Yakutia, some 125 km northeast of the Ikabya station on the BAM railway and only 4 km to the east of another Nordgold mine, Taborny.
The Gross mine is an open pit heap leach operation with expected average annual gold production of 200 koz over a period of 17 years.
Gross created nearly 900 new high-skilled jobs, and we expect the mine to become a major contributor to the economic and social development of the Far East of Russia.
The proximity of Taborny creates a number of synergies allowing Nordgold to benefit from economies of scale, expert knowledge of local geology and experienced personnel..
