The establishment of a mining and processing plant for further processing is provided for the development of the Usinsk Deposit in the Kemerovo Oblast.
The design capacity of the processing facilities will be 750 thousand tons of crude ore (manganese content of 19-24%) or about 400 thousand tons of concentrate per year (100 thousand tons of oxidized ore concentrate and 300 thousand tons of carbonate ore concentrates with a manganese content of about 35%).
Output from the processing facilities will be delivered to the plant in the Republic of Khakassia for further processing.
The amount of investment for developing the deposit and constructing mining infrastructure will reach about 15 billion rubles. During the most intensive period of construction activities, about 850 people will be employed at the site, and the launch of the processing facilities will create about 600 permanent jobs.
The company’s payments to the regional budget of Kemerovo Oblast have already exceeded 40 million rubles just for leases, and after the start of production, this amount will increase significantly.
