Tigers Realm Coal’s (“TIG’s”) vision is to become a significant supplier of high quality coking coal to the seaborne market through the development of its assets located in the vicinity of the Bering Sea coast in the Russian Far East, Chukotka Autonomous Okrug (District). The two TIG controlled Licences, Amaam and Amaam North, together comprise the “Amaam Coal Project”. Integral to the realisation of the Amaam North project is the TIG owned Beringovsky Port and Coal Terminal, located 35km to the north east of the Amaam North tenement. TIG is planning to achieve this goal through gradually realising its resource potential and becoming a meaningful supplier of up to 10 Mtpa of coking coal to the seaborne market via the development of the Amaam Coal project in three stages.

Duratray International is a world leader in mining technology. With more than 47 years of experience in the mining industry, the company specialises in the design, engineering, manufacturing and commercialisation of dump bodies for mining haulage equipment.
In 2001, Chile-based Conymet International Group acquired Duratray from Pacific Dunlop and decided to establish Duratray International’s headquarters in Victoria, Australia. Since then, Duratray has gone global with its international footprint expanding more than ten times in less than 20 years. Today, from its Australian headquarters the company manufactures and exports globally to over 34 markets around the world, including key mining jurisdictions such as Canada, United States, South Africa, Russia and Latin America.
Since 2014, the Russian market has been a key commercial priority for Duratray. Today, the company is proud to be one of the few Australian owned businesses operating in the country. Through its local distributor, Kuzbass Mining Service (KMS), Duratray serves the largest mining companies in Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia and Ukraine.
Having commenced in the region with sales to Kyrgyzstan in 2014, Siberia in 2015 and Western Russia in 2016, Duratray then exhibited in Mining World Russia 2017, together with other 240 major players within in the mining industry and has been an exhibitor ever since. Mining World Russia provided Duratray the opportunity to feature its customized heavy-engineering technology, showcasing the Suspended Dump Body (SDB) and the XP Steel Light Dump Body to the Eastern European mining market.
The SDB is Duratray’s staple equipment, offering a unique lightweight tray that consists of a flexible rubber wear mat, supported by high capacity synthetic suspension ropes and a steel frame resistant to abrasion. This design has demonstrated a wide range of benefits catered to specific mine and quarry applications, including increasing payload, eliminating carryback and reducing noise.
Likewise, since 2016 the XP Steel Light Dump Body has been the perfect match for the fleet of CAT 793D trucks in a large iron mine located in north-western Russia. The XP enables clients to optimise payloads and production output, while minimising vehicle wight and maintenance periods. The tray is made with high-technology steels that enhance the weight of the component, which enables weight reductions up to 40% and reduction on transportation costs per tonne by 25%.
In 2018, Duratray experienced a great growth in Russia, delivering 26 XP units to one of its biggest clients in the region. As a result of these new 240 tonnes dump bodies, the mine was able to increase 9% its production in its truck cycle.
Currently, Duratray XP Steel Light Dump Bodies have sold six different fleets into Russia and adjacent countries.
