Zaporizhzhia Iron Ore Plant
Zaporizhzhia Iron Ore Plant (ZZHRK) mines iron ore using the underground method at the depth of 301– 1,140 meters. Iron ore is mined at Pivdenno-Bilozerske (reserves – 188.1 million tons) and Pereverzivske (reserves – 393.9 million tons) deposits.
ZZHRK produces sinter iron ore. The company sells 50% of its output in the Ukrainian market. The rest is exported to Europe.
ZZHRK is the only Ukrainian company dealing with filling of voids after mining. The works are performed by a special equipment complex, with the annual capacity of around 1.5 million cubic meters. Crushed stone obtained from the waste rock is used to fill the voids.
Zaporizhzhia Iron Ore Plant belongs to Zaporizhstal and foreign shareholders.

Zaporizhzhia Iron Ore Plant bought a multi-purpose mining machine, PAUS KRF40D. The machine is designed for clearing railway tracks and welding during maintenance of mine machinery and tracks. This is the plant’s first machinery of this kind.
ZZHRK is going to commence development of new deposits of iron ore at the depth of 1,040 meters.
The company will continue to expand its mining equipment stock: it is going to buy self-propelled drilling rigs and auxiliary vehicles for explosives.
Several self-propelled vehicles were put into operation, in particular Sandvik DD 310-40 drilling rig and Spraymec SF 050VC wet shotcrete complex.
The company uses non-TNT explosives in all types of mining operations. As a result, emulsion explosives account for 70%.
