Natalka is located in the Magadan Region on the northern Pacific coast of Russia, in one of the most remote and cold parts of the country. It is a major open-pit gold deposit which was discovered in 1942.

Polyus acquired Natalka in 2008. The construction of a mining complex began in 2012, and active full-scale mining was launched in early 2013. However, mining and construction works at the mill were soon halted.

Construction at Natalka restarted in 2016. Mining operations were relaunched in January 2017, and hot commissioning was successfully completed at the mill. Polyus fully ramped up production at Natalka in the second half of 2018, and today the asset is operating at its full design capacity.
