Tommot (Russian: Томмо́т; Sakha: Томмот) is a town in Aldansky District of the Sakha Republic, Russia, located on the Aldan River (a right-hand tributary of the Lena) 390 kilometers (240 mi) southwest of Yakutsk and 70 kilometers (43 mi) southwest of Aldan. Population: 8,057 (2010 Census);[3] 9,032 (2002 Census);[5] 9,460 (1989 Census).[6]


The name of the town is derived from a Yakut word meaning non-freezing.


The town was the terminus of the passenger trains of the Amur Yakutsk Mainline. In November 2011, the railway was extended to Nizhny Bestyakh; it will eventually reach Yakutsk.[7] Both the railway and the Lena Highway cross the Aldan at this point.


It was founded in 1923 with the construction of a river port on the Aldan for supplies to the Nezametny gold mine in the present-day town of Aldan.[citation needed] It was formerly the head of navigation of the Aldan River. Tommot was granted town status in 1925.[citation needed]

Administrative and municipal status[edit]

As an inhabited locality, Tommot is classified as a town under district jurisdiction.[1] Within the framework of administrative divisions, it is, together with three rural localities, incorporated within Aldansky District as the Town of Tommot.[1] As a municipal division, the territories of the Town of Tommot and the Settlement of Bezymyanny are incorporated within Aldansky Municipal District as Tommot Urban Settlement.[2]


Mining of mica deposits began in 1942, after they were discovered in a stream near the town by a hunter.
