Korshunov Mining Plant
Korshunov Mining Plant obtained Russia"s Federal Subsoil Use Agency (Rosnedra)’s license to mine the Korshunov iron ore deposit down to 840 meters deep. This will extend open pit mining at the deposit until 2030. The company’s reserves gained 500 million tonnes due to the new license.
Korshunov Mining Plant celebrated its 50th anniversary. A memorial arch was opened in Academician Yangel Boulevard in honor of this event.
In April, the plant received 10 90-tonne BelAZ trucks as part of its technical upgrade program.
In May, the plant’s washing facility produced its 240-millionth tonne of iron ore concentrate. The jubilee tonne was sent to our chief customer — Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant.
In December, Russia’s Federal Service of Accreditation (RusAccreditation) confirmed the quality of Korshunov Mining Plant’s technical and chemical control service’s work.
Korshunov Mining Plant began reconstructing its washing plant’s tailing pond. The project includes building up the dam’s height and the pond’s holding capacity.
As part of the investment program of revamping the mining and transport equipment, the plant launched three new heavy-duty 130-tonne trucks and a new bore for drilling holes.
At its washing plant, Korshunov Mining Plant launched the eighth factory section for washing iron ore. Increasing the washing plant’s capacity will enable the facility to boost output of iron ore concentrate.
