22 October 2015. Above the Arctic Circle, near the East Siberian Sea and far into the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug of Russia, is the Kupol Gold Mine. It is located in a notoriously isolated part of the world. Under Stalin, gulags were established in the region, many of which were used to mine for natural resources. Deposits of gold were first discovered in the 1940s. In 2005, construction began on Kupol.
