Peter Tarassoff reports in http://www.mindat.org/forum.php?read,105,376612,376943#msg-376943 , "I have just received this clarification from a leading Russian authority on the mineralogy of the Lovozero Massif:
'...the operating part of the Karnasurt mine is [now] only underground. It consists of two areas, namely the Karnasurt area (underground workings under Mt. Karnasurt) and the Kedykverpakhk area (under Mt. Kedykverpakhk). They are connected via [a] working under the Ilmayok river valley between these two mountains. The Yubileynaya pegmatite is in the Karnasurt area of the Karnasurt mine (under Mt. Karnasurt).'" Also see map on page 686 of Pakhomovsky, Y. A., Ivanyuk, G. Y., & Yakovenchuk, V. N. (2014). Loparite-(Ce) in rocks of the Lovozero layered complex at Mt. Karnasurt and Mt. Kedykvyrpakhk. Geology of Ore Deposits, 56(8), 685-698.
