Remains of the Gulag Labor Camp "Rybak Lag" Northeast Taimyr, Russia, July 1990

The development of labor camps during the Stalin period forced many hundred thousand people to "settle" in the Russian Arctic. Some of the bigger settlements, such as Norilsk, have their roots in this period. - The Rybak Lag is one of smaller camps, which were operationg in the northeastern part of the Taimyr Peninsula in conection with geological prospecting. Remains are still visible on the banks of the river Goltsova south of the mouth of the Shirokaya river. On the left banks of the Leningradskya river they used to win coal for the “fisherman’s” needs. Close by is "Zaosyornaya", where they prospected for minerals and carried out geological research.
