Russia is among the top three producers of diamond, gold, platinum group metals and nickel. It is also a key supplier of iron ore, steel and aluminium, alongside seaborn and metallurgical coal to European markets. Meanwhile Ukraine is principally a supplier of coal, iron ore and uranium, though on a much smaller scale. 


Of the leading miners, Nornickel initially stated that operations were continuing and in May confirmed supply of palladium and nickel sales were unaffected with no change to its 2022 guidance. However, while not directly affected by sanctions, it is adjusting its supply routes. 


Linked to Australia's response to the war, Rio Tinto severed ties with Russian businesses and took sole control over Queensland Alumina, which operates an alumina refinery in Australia, in which Rio owns 80% and Rusal 20%. Rusal has since filed a lawsuit to win back access to its share. 


In March, Canadian miner Kinross announced that it was suspending all activities in Russia, including its Udinsk development project in Khabarovsk Krai, and operations at its Kupol gold mine. Further to that, in June 2022 it sold its operations to Highland Gold Mining, one of the larger gold producers in Russia, for $340m.
