The Yubileyno-Snegirikhinskoe, (also known as Yubileyno-Snegirikhinsky) deposit is a small polymetallic VHMS deposit within the Rudny Altay Volcanic Arc, in the Leninogorsk/Ridder district of eastern Kazakhstan. It is located 35 km NNW Ridder (#Location: 50° 38' 31"N, 83° 37' 12"E).

The deposit was brought into production in 1964, and in 2009 treated 0.60 Mt of ore averaging 3.26% Cu and 2.45% Zn.

Ore is present in a number of orebodies occurring as a series of sub-parallel pods that are elongated in a steep to sub-vertical direction and are gently folded. Individual orebodies vary from 2 to 30 m in thickness, averaging 18 m. The Western orebody, which comprises around a third of the resources, is ~150 m wide, and persists for 600 m down-dip. The Central orebody is ~20 m wide and also extends for ~600 m down-plunge, while the deeper Central No. 2 orebody is 150 to 200 m wide and ~500 m down-plunge. The No. 7 lens, which is located to the east of the Central orebodies is ~100 m wide and extends for 600 m down-dip.

Mineral resources remaining as at 1 January, 2011 were (IMC Group Consulting Ltd, 2011. Competent Persons Report to Kazakhmys Plc):
    Measured resource - 1.177 Mt @ 3.41% Cu, 5.22% Zn, 0.61 g/t Au, 41.05 g/t Ag, 0.89% Pb;
    Indicated resource - 0.318 Mt @ 3.59% Cu, 1.72% Zn, 0.29 g/t Au, 17.94 g/t Ag, 0.23% Pb;
    TOTAL resource - 1.494 Mt @ 3.45% Cu, 4.47% Zn, 0.54 g/t Au, 36.14 g/t Ag, 0.75% Pb;
Ore reserves (same date and source - included in resource)
    TOTAL reserve - 1.718 Mt @ 2.76% Cu, 3.58% Zn, 0.43 g/t Au, 28.91 g/t Ag, 0.60% Pb.
