Primorye: Dalnegorsk
November 12, 2017 01:24


The easternmost and highest mountain town of Primorsky Territory. The rocks located in the vicinity of Dalnegorsk were once depicted on a bill of 1000 roubles. Dalnegorsk was founded in 1897 as a settlement of Tetyukhe (translated as “wild boar valley” from Chinese).

This settlement was named this way after its location on the Tetyuke River (now called Rudnaya River). The history of the town began with an expedition led by the mining engineer S.V. Maslennikov who discovered a deposit of lead-zinc ores on the spurs of the Sikhote-Alin in 1897.

The expedition was sent by Yu.I. Brinner, a famous Far-Eastern merchant, a mining industrialist and a public figure. By the way, it was his grandson named Yul Brinner who became one of the most famous Hollywood actors. A mining company was soon created on the basis of the deposit, so that to start its development. Over time ore production grew, and production methods were improved.

Before the Second World War the Sikhote-Alinsky Polymetallic Industrial Plant was a complicated enterprise with a complete cycle of tin production.

In 1930 the settlement of Tetyukhe became an urban-type settlement. In 1965 the Primorsky Mining and Chemical Industrial Plant was opened there, later it was renamed as “Bor” Production Association. Even now it is one of the town-forming enterprises.

In 1972 the settlement was renamed as Dalnegorsk, and in 1989 it received the status of a town.
