Cost for Raspadskaya recovery an estimated 8.6 bln rubles

MOSCOW. July 14 (Interfax) - The price tag for the recovery of the Raspadskaya coal mine is tentatively put at 8.6 billion rubles, a company statement says.

That figure is based on the company's plan for redressing the aftermath of the deadly methane mine blasts that left scores dead.

According to the protocol for a meeting with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on June 24, there will be discussion of allocating federal budget monies for building a scheme of grids for the external supply of electricity to the town of Mezhdurechensk and Raspadskaya.

The company is currently taking operational measures to increase output at its other enterprises with the aim of offsetting volume because of the disaster. It is mining and shipping K (KO) coal from the mine CJSC Koksovaya, acquired this past April.
