Buturichak was one of the most horrible and repressive camps in Kolyma. At the end of the 1980s, and the beginning of the 1990s people learned about the camp as a place where uranium was mined. There were more then 7.5 thousand prisoners between 1937 and 1950. Prisoners didn't have any idea of what they are dealing with. In 1955 the mine was closed and the camp was shut down. The eighteen years' activity of Buturichak became history.
