History[edit]

Ust-Nera flood of 1959

Ust-Nera was founded in 1937 in conjunction with gold mining and exploration in the Indigirka and Kolyma regions.[citation needed] In the Soviet era, it served as a base for forced labor camps of the gulag. Urban-type settlement status was granted to Ust-Nera in 1950.[2]

Administrative and municipal status[edit]

Within the framework of administrative divisions, the urban-type settlement of Ust-Nera[1] serves as the administrative center of Oymyakonsky District.[2] As an administrative division, it is incorporated within Oymyakonsky District as the Settlement of Ust-Nera.[2] As a municipal division, the Settlement of Ust-Nera is incorporated within Oymyakonsky Municipal District as Ust-Nera Urban Settlement.[11]

Economy[edit]

Gold mining is the main occupation. The Kolyma Highway was extended northwest to Ust-Nera in 1937; this section is now the main route between Yakutsk and Magadan. The Ust-Nera Airport is serving air traffic. River traffic on the Indigirka is limited by the rapids 100 kilometers (62 mi) downstream.

Culture[edit]

There is a small museum in Ust-Nera.
