Description:
Nyurba (; ) is a town in the Sakha Republic, Russia. Population: 10,309 (2002 Census); 11,934 (1989 Census).

Geography

The town is located on the Vilyuy River, a right-hand tributary of the Lena, 846 km north-west of Yakutsk.

History

Nyurba was founded in 1930, although the area has been settled since the middle of the 18th century. In the 1950s, the town grew rapidly as a base for exploration of the nearby diamond deposits, receiving urban-type settlement status in 1958. Town status was granted in 1998.

Economy and infrastructure

Production of diamonds is the primary industry in the town, both as the site of a diamond cutting works operated by the state-owned ALROSA company, as well as its status as a supply town for nearby mining operations.

Nyurba has a small airport and a river port.
