Kryvyi Rih Iron Ore Plant (KZHRK) intends to carry out biological reclamation of the tailings depository and dam of the Pokrovska mine. This is evidenced by Unified Register of Environmental Impact Assessment of the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources of Ukraine’s data.

The planned activity includes the reclamation of the tailings storage facility and the dam. The lands are located in Pokrovsky district of Kryvyi Rih

The works belong to category 2.1 – agricultural and forestry development and land reclamation in areas of 20 hectares or more. Details of planned activities are not specified.

The method of tailings reclamation includes drainage of water from the massif, application of clayey rocks to the surface, the next fertile layer and sowing of perennial crops.

As GMK Center reported earlier, formerly KZHRK renamed the mine Zhovtneva to Pokrovska, which is part of it, within the framework of the legislation on the prohibition of totalitarian regimes symbols.

In January-July 2022 the plant reduced production of sinter ore underground mining by 19.7% compared to the same period last year – up to 2.034 million tons. In June, 280 thousand tons of sinter ore were produced.

The pre-war plans of the enterprise for 2022 predicted an increase in the production of sinter oer with an iron content of 58.94% by 8.6% compared to 2021 – up to 4.67 million tons.
