Metallurgist Day of 1997

July 17, 2020

For the first time, Vladimir Potanin, the head of ONEXIM-Bank at that time, came to the celebration.

Aleksandr Hloponin, the thirty-two-year-old acting at that time general director of Norilsk Nickel, is next to the legendary leaders of the Norilsk combine of the 1950s – 1960s, Vladimir Dolgih and Aleksey Loginov. Alexey Loginov was a Norilsk resident from 1941 to 1957. The former Monchegorsk citizen managed the combine during the transition of production to civilian rails, but he fulfilled the tasks facing Norilsk in 1954-1957 with honor.

His successor, five years later, Vladimir Dolgih, went down in history with the discovery of the Talnah deposit, on the development of which, thanks to the director of the plant, they saved several years. For Loginov (in the photo he is on the right, next to Dolgih), this visit to the city, which he called his finest hour, was the last.
