The main horizon of the longwall is 1213 meters underground. It provided an output of 1000-1200 tons of coal per 24 hours since February 2013. But in the summer of 2014 the 5th south longwall was drowned due to massive shelling, the pile driver was damaged and the electrical substation was destroyed.
