First Talnah ore was gift to Norilsk

This photographs selection shows one of the most memorable City Days in the history of Norilsk. It was celebrated on July 17-18, 1965.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. At that time, in addition to the three main dates – the Combine’s birthday, City Day and Metallurgist’s Day – one more occasion was added: the First Ore Festival.

From the Mayak mine, cars drove along the new Norilsk-Talnah highway. True, they crossed Norilskaya river using a pontoon bridge, because although the new bridge was just built that summer, its road part was handed over only by November.

A column of trucks solemnly rolled along Leninsky prospect. The best drivers were behind the wheel, they even competed for the right to deliver the first ore.

Red slogans hung on the cars sides: “The first ore of Talnah is for the Motherland!”, “Our gift for the combine 30th anniversary”, “Glory to the Talnah discoverers!”

In the last issue of the History Spot photo project, we told about why Molodezhny passage received this name.
