JSC Almazy Anabara is one of the leading companies in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). It has been a wholly owned subsidiary of ALROSA since 2007.
Almazy Anabara is engaged in rough diamond production at the placer deposits located near rivers and brooks in the northwest part of Yakutia, in the territories of six uluses (administrative districts). The enterprise develops 7 placers: Morgogor, Istok, Kholomolokh, Ebelyakh, Gusinoye, Ruchey 41 and Kurung-Yuryakh. In view of the harsh climate of the Far North, the development of the placer deposits is of seasonal nature and is conducted in summer months.
