The Dixon project in 2017 developed as planned. Upon the discovery of the coal deposit, the first exploration and production license was obtained for the Malolemberovskoye deposit, and preparations for the start of commercial production were carried out. Several batches of large-capacity test were sent to semi-industrial tests. The geological study of the areas continued, showing positive results at the 5 priority sites of the subsoil.

The shipment of the building materials for the construction of the cargo berth of the coal terminal "Chaika" continued last year as well.
