The company is the third global primary silver producer, the largest silver and the fourth gold producer in Russia.[7] It produced 810 Koz of gold equivalent in 2011. Production output in 2011 consisted of 55% gold, 41% silver and 4% copper.[8] In 2008 it produced 17.2 million ounces of silver and 285,000 ounces of gold.[9]

Polymetal owns gold and silver mines and carries out exploration activities in six regions of Russia (the Magadan Region, the Khabarovsk Territory, the Sverdlovsk Region, the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, Republic of Karelia and Sakha Republic), Kazakhstan and Armenia. Its portfolio of projects contains 36 licences covering a territory of over 7,800 km2. The Group organises its operations into six operational units, which are categorised into centralised processing hubs and stand-alone mines.[3]


  • The Dukat hub consists of the Omsukchan concentrator, which processes ore from the Dukat and Goltsovoye mines, and the Lunnoye processing plant, which processes ore from the Lunnoye and Arylakh mines, as well as concentrate from the Omsukchan concentrator.[3]
  • The Amursk hub is Polymetal's largest project. It comprises two high-grade refractory gold deposits, Albazino and Mayskoye, the Amursk hydrometallurgical plant, the Albazino concentrator and the Mayskoye concentrator. First gold was poured at the Amursk POX facility in April 2012.[3]
  • The Omolon hub consists of the Kubaka processing plant, which processes ore from the Birkachan mine and is expected to serve as a centralised processing facility for the operating Sopka mine, and other new mines.[3]

Stand-alone mines:

  • The Voro stand-alone mine consists of the main production site with two open-pit mines and two processing facilities. It is also currently processing ore from two small satellite mines.[3]
  • The Khakanja stand-alone mine consists of the main production site with open-pit mines and a processing plant. It is also currently processing ore from a small satellite mine and a trial mine at one of the advanced exploration projects.[3]
  • The Varvara stand-alone mine, located in Kazakhstan, consists of a production site with an open-pit mine and a processing plant. The Company believes that due to its scale, location and transportation infrastructure, Varvara has the potential to become a processing hub in the future, treating ore from other deposits in the surrounding region.[3]
