Russian & CIS Coal Summit 2014 in Moscow

The Russian & CIS Coal Summit, the most prestigious event of coal industry, which over a period of ten years has been attracting more than 50 spokesmen and 200 delegates, including heads and specialists of coal mining companies, operators, traders and consumers operating in Russia and CIS, took place from May 14 to 16. 2014 at Intercontinental Hotel in Moscow. The summit was organized by the Adam Smith Institute (UK) and Informa (Australia). The Russian and CIS Coal Summit rounds up top managers of the leading companies operating in Russia, CIS countries, and at the international level. This summit is a place to discuss expert estimates and provides unique opportunities for making business acquaintances. Also, it provides an extensive review of the demand and supply market, regional manufacture of power-station and caking coal, offering a strategic vision of industry growth trends by major Russian manufacturers and international customers. Within the framework of the summit programme panel sessions, discussions and presentations of leaders of coal industry of Russia, Ukraine, Europe and Asia were held. This review contains the most interesting reports and speeches of the summit participants.

Features of Metamorphism Intensity and Grade Composition
of the Apsatsky Coal Field

The papers actuality consists in that the caking fossil ʻ grade premium class coal becomes more and more deficient in the caking coal market not only for Russia, but for abroad as well. The coal raw potential of Eastern Siberia grows considerably due to development of the new for Russia Apsatsky coal-mining field of Transbaikalia, in the nearest decades it should replenish the market with urgent raw material. In 2012, OJSC "SUEK" started a full-scale industrial open-cut mining of the field. The paper examines the effect of the regional northeast overstep on coal metamorphism and of the features of its development in the lower coal-bearing Malm formation.

Technologies of Rock Dump Formation in Regions of the Central
and Eastern Siberia with Large-scale Open Coal Mining

The rock dump are backfilled everywhere in the territory of Siberia in the coal-mining regions. A significant environmental problem consists in the formation of vegetative ecosystems on the dump slopes in ecologically acceptable conditions. The proposed special technology allows to increase the dump intake capacity, as well as to provide creation of a mining landscape relief promoting to accelerated appearance and growth of the ecosystems formed on the dump slopes.
