The central infirmary of camp outpost No 1 in Abez on the east bank of the Usa River began to operate in 1940. Part of Sevpechlag until 1949, it then was transferred to Minlag, serving both prisoners and free workers. After Minlag itself was disbanded in 1957 the territory of camp outpost No 1 and the infirmary was ploughed up and used as farmland. The numbers buried there has not been established.
As of 2005 the free workers’ section of the graveyard survived, in part, and traces of the camp structures. Local historian V.V. Lozhkin studied the area of the former camp, as did exploratory expeditions from Vorkuta in 2004 (Raduga brigade) and from Inta in 2005 (staff of the Inta museum of history and local studies together with pupils from Secondary School No 6).
(The 2005 plan shows:  burials of prisoners from camp outpost No 5, ОЛП 5;  civilian graveyard next to camp outpost No. 1, ОЛП 1;  memorial graveyard, 1949-1959;  the old civilian graveyard, 1945-1960; and  the new civilian graveyard, 1960s onwards.).
