Pokrovsk Mining from November has suspended its core operations of ore mining and concentrate production. The company’s staff will be involved in providing services to customers. Among the main issues affecting the plant’s operations is the economic downturn in terms of demand and the cost of manganese products.

As GMK Center reported earlier, Pokrovsky Mining in the middle of July 2023 after a 4-month standstill, the Chkalovsk enrichment plant was put into operation again. The issue of factory operation directly depends on the demand for concentrate, which is not increasing yet.

In September, the plant produced the first tons of manganese sinter ore at the Bohdanivska beneficiation and agglomeration factory after a long period of downtime. BZAF planned to produce 15,000 tons of agglomerate per month.

Pokrovsk Mining is the largest producer of manganese ore in Ukraine. The main consumers of products are enterprises of the steelmaking and ferroalloy branches of the steel industry.
