KTK

Kuzbasskaya Toplivnaya Company (“KTK” or the “Company”) is one of the fastest-growing thermal coal producers in Russia. In terms of 2010 production volume, it was ranked 7th among the largest thermal coal producers in the country. In the ten years since its establishment in 2000, the Company has commissioned and launched three open-pit mines and an enrichment plant, achieving annual production volume of 6.8 million tonnes of coal in 2010. The Company expects to continue to grow its production volume, ongoing investments into its high performance modern mining technology, aimed at achieving the aggregate structural capacity of existing mines of 11 million tonnes of coal per year.

The Company’s JORC coal resources totalled 402 million tonnes of ROM coal as of January 1, 2011. The Company produces exclusively thermal coal, classified as grade “D” under the Russian classification system, with a naturally low sulphur and phosphorus content, as well as a relatively high calorific value.

The Company’s mining operations are supported by an extensive production and logistics infrastructure, including its own railway network and facilities, which enable the Company to transport 100% of produced coal from the open-pit mines to the main railway hub at the long-distance railway network, operated by Russian Railways. Furthermore, as the Company’s mines are located within 5 km from each other, a number of operations are centralized, thereby minimising overhead costs and expenses.

In 2010, the Company’s total coal sales amounted to 8.5 million tonnes of coal, of which 6.4 million tonnes were produced by the Company and 2.1 million tonnes were retailed after purchasing from other coal producers. The Company maintains a diversified sales structure balanced between export and domestic sales with approximately 56% of the coal sold to domestic consumers and approximately 44% exported, primarily to Poland, South Korea and China, in 2010.

The Company’s strong regional presence is supported by an extensive retail distribution network, located throughout the Kemerovo, Novosibirsk, Omsk and Altay Regions of Western Siberia. As of January 1, 2011, the Company’s distribution network included 65 owned and operated points of sale and delivered 3.3 million tonnes of coal in 2010, positioning KTK as one of the principal suppliers of coal to retail customers in Western Siberia.
