ALMAR sets the task of developing diamond deposits in the Arctic of Yakutia and creating a modern high-tech enterprise that combines the experience and traditions of Russian diamond miners with the flexibility and dynamics of a small private company and modern world achievements in the field of exploration and mining.
The company’s development is based on modern approaches that allow us to provide the necessary growth dynamics, flexibility in a rapidly changing world and sustainability:
- Development of small sites with good transport accessibility, providing short terms of their commissioning with relatively low investment costs and return on investment. Formation of a balanced portfolio of mineral resources in the future, including both small placer deposits for rapid growth, and medium and large indigenous deposits for sustainable long-term development.
- Application of modern technologies in the field of geological exploration, mining and processing works, shift mining method allowing to reduce capital investments in production, to provide high mobility of production resources and their effective use at once on several license sites at the same time. The use of the most modern world practices and technologies that ensure high efficiency of production processes.
- Foundation of a competence center in the field of diamond exploration, mining, concentrating and sales by attracting the best specialists, the formation of a well-coordinated highly professional team of the enterprise.
- Customer focus, which we understand primarily as convenience for our customers, transparency of business processes, as well as adherence to international best practices and flexible adaptation of sales policy to changes in the global diamond market.
- Attitude to the Arctic and Yakutia as a home, which the company plans to continuously equip and develop taking into account the traditions and nature of the region.
- Following the high standards adopted by international diamond organizations such as Kimberly Process, Diamond Producers Association and Responsible Jewellery Council in the field of diamond production, trade, human capital and ecology.
