Dalny (Russian: Да́льний , lit. remote or far) is an urban locality (a work settlement) in Bilibinsky District of Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, Russia, located west of Bilibino.

History[edit]

The settlement was abandoned as a result of the extraction of gold no longer being economically viable.[6] The mines were declared unprofitable and that there was no possibility of developing any other form of economy in 1999 and the settlement was closed along with a number of others in Chukotka.[4] The Russian government guaranteed funds to transport non-working pensioners and the unemployed in liquidated settlements including Dalny from Chukotka to other parts of Russia.[4] The Ministry of railways was obliged to lease containers for the transportation of the migrants' goods to the Chukotkan administration and ensure that they were delivered to the various settlements.[4] Despite the mines closing, the Kupol Gold Project environmental impact assessment, still recorded three people remaining in the settlement as of 2005.[7] However, as of 2008 is in the process of being officially liquidated,[1] and a report on the Klen gold deposit for Highland Gold Mining Ltd reported the settlement as being deserted.[2]

In 1981, one of the world's largest iron meteorites, named "Bilibino", was discovered near the settlement.[8]

Dalny is not connected to any other inhabited location by permanent road except the now abandoned settlement of Devichiy.[9] However, there is a small network of roads within the settlement including:[10]
