The coal mining at the “Kazakhstanskaya” mine has been temporarily suspended, as reported by the “Korgau” labor union. This comes after a tragedy occurred in August of this year.

“In connection with the accident that occurred on August 17, work at the ‘Kazakhstanskaya’ mine for coal mining and tunneling has been suspended indefinitely,” the statement reads.

Currently, efforts are being made to ensure the well-being of the mine. Approximately 600 employees, who were released due to the suspension of the main operations, have been relocated to other coal department mines.

“The ‘Korgau’ coal miners’ labor union has reached an agreement with the management of ArcelorMittal Temirtau JSC that the relocated workers will be paid based on the work they perform, but not less than the average wage,” the publication notes.

For any questions that workers may have regarding their relocation to other mines, they are encouraged to contact the labor union committees of the respective enterprises.

Recall that on August 17 at 10:05, a fire broke out in the coal incline D6 (horizon – 170 m) at the “Kazakhstanskaya” mine in the Karaganda region. An emergency response plan was initiated. At the time of the incident, 227 people were underground. Evacuation of employees was carried out through a flank shaft. 222 employees were rescued, while 5 employees lost their lives. Their names were disclosed by ArcelorMittal Temirtau.
