And today, due to too much mining demand, gold reserves in the world are declining. Therefore, gold becomes more expensive.
There is a gold mine in the world where there is gold everywhere, but there are no miners.
Huge lonely gold mine at the end of the EarthThe gold mine mentioned here is Kupol Gold Mine, located in the most remote region in the Northeast (Russia). This is the place with the harshest climate conditions in the world with very low average temperatures.
Kupol gold mine was discovered around the 1940s, deep in the ice. This is where there are huge gold reserves of up to 4,500 tons of gold. So, it’s no exaggeration to say that we can just pick up a shovel and scoop a lot of gold.

Why is there a huge reserve but no one exploits the Kupol gold mine?
Kupol gold mine has large gold reserves, but due to its location in the Arctic circle, the weather here is extremely harsh, covered with snow and ice all year round, so few people exploit it.
During the day, the temperature here can be very high, but when night falls, the weather suddenly drops to – 50 degrees, causing people to suffer from heat stroke, susceptible to cardiovascular diseases, and extremely dangerous for their health.
Besides, the terrain here is extremely complex, with limited movement conditions, barren surroundings, making it impossible to stay, making all human activities difficult. Therefore, the gold mine was isolated for many years.
Kupol gold mine is one of the most difficult gold mines to exploit globally.

However, despite the harsh conditions, in 1990 the Russian Government planned to exploit this gold mine and invested a lot of money to buy modern mining equipment. But they face difficulties when no one wants to exploit even though they are paid extremely high salaries.
It is the harsh natural conditions that have created a major barrier for humans when accessing this giant gold mine. Therefore, for thousands of years, not many people have had the courage to come here to exploit.
Human footprints have appearedToday, with the rapid development of modern technology, people have finally introduced the most advanced and modern hooks to exploit Kupol gold mine.
However, due to its remote location, located more than 200km from the nearest city, people have only two ways to get to the gold mine, which is to travel by plane or take a 200-mile temporary road (but the road only appears from November to April of the following year when the weather is warmer).
Currently, Kupol mine currently has more than 1,200 workers mining.

Many people could not stand the climate here and gave up mining. That’s why Kinross Gold Group – the mining licensee – has invested in building warm houses with amenities to serve dedicated workers.
