Seligdar participates in projects of restauration of the cultural heritage. In 2011, the Company commissioned an icon and an icon case for the Orthodox Church of Nativity of the Blessed Virgin in the village of Nizhny Kuranakh in the Aldan district. In 2012, Seligdar presented an icon of St. Barbara, patroness of miners, to the St. Petersburg Mining University.

In 2010, employees of Poisk, a subsidiary of Seligdar, found an ancient mine reinforced by a wooden crib at the Murzinskiy deposit. The analysis showed that this unique ancient structure was built in 1772-1789, presumably by the ore miners of Akinfiy Demidov, one of the first gold-miners of Russia. Seligdar covered expenditures of extraction, restoration and conservation of the crib.

The remaining parts of the mine crib gave birth to the exhibition “Murzinskiy Mountain Timber mine”, which was later transferred to the Altai Museum of Local History, where it was located under a glass sarcophagus and became the heart of the exhibition dedicated to the history of mining in the Altai region. Seligdar ordered a model of the mine where were used larch logs of the found crib. The model was donated to the St. Petersburg Mining University and replenished the collection of Department of the History of mining engineering of the Mining Museum.
