In 1958, the Shargun coal deposit with a design capacity of 400 thousand tons per year was commissioned.
A. Eshkulov, Kh. Tursunov, P. Khursanov took an active part in the construction of the mine. They mined coal by hand at a coal mine in Boysun and followed in the footsteps of their fathers and grandfathers.
They were awarded orders and medals of the Government, the head of the mining detachment Parda Khursanov was awarded the title of “Honorary Miner”, and his three sons became heirs to the dynasty of miners.

The Kucharovs were directors.
In the early sixties, due to the fact that 95% of Shargun’s coal was fine-grained (13 mm), the sale of coal products was difficult.
For the use of the young organization, a briquette plant was built in the organization, launched in 1965, and the sale of briquetted (packaged) coal began.
The cable car was built in 1960 and completely solved the problem of coal transportation, and in 1978 the road was repaired and reopened.
The largest production of coal in the history of the mine to date was achieved in 1990, when it amounted to 220 thousand tons.
Coal mined from open pits is loaded by scraper conveyors onto bogies and transported by electric locomotives to an external coal base. From the coal warehouse, coal is loaded into bunkers, from which it is loaded into trolleys on the cable car, 18 km is delivered to the briquette plant, loaded into wagons and sent to consumers.
