    The Nornickel Group boasts a unique resource base unrivaled in terms of the number of valuable minerals and the high content of key metals such as nickel, copper, and platinum group metals (PGM). Located on the Taimyr Peninsula, the Company’s key production site has over 2 bt of ore in resources, which is sufficient to maintain current production levels for over 80 years.

    Nornickel develops the Talnakh and Norilsk Ore Clusters in the Norilsk Industrial District. In 2018, the total amount of ore mined in these areas was 17.3 mt or approximately 50% of the Nornickel Group’s overall production volumes.

    The key production assets responsible for mining and processing are Polar Division and Bear Creek. Polar Division develops the Talnakh Ore Cluster, which includes the Oktyabrskoye and Talnakhskoye copper-nickel deposits of rich, cupriferous, and disseminated ores, while Bear Creek produces ore from the Norilsk Ore Cluster.
