Reserves of the block amount to 60,000 tons of raw ore

Sukha Balka Mine, part of the DCH Group, has commissioned a new block at Yuvileyna mine with reserves of 60 thousand tons of ore. This is stated in the corporate newspaper DCH Steel.

The new production capacity of the Yuvileyna mine – block 19-25 – is located on the 7th floor of the Main deposit at a horizon of -1420 meters. The iron content in the ore is over 58%.

The new block was cut by miners of the 7th section, while mining will be carried out by the employees of the 17th section. This production capacity will ensure the company’s operation for the next 4.5 months.

In February of this year, Sukha Balka Mine commissioned two new units at Yuvileyna mine, which will ensure stable operation of the mine for the next six months. The total reserves of these two operating units – blocks 36-42, 3rd floor of the Gnezdo deposit and blocks 1-4 located in the Golovoye deposit at the -1420 m horizon – amount to 332 thousand tons of ore.

As GMK Center reported earlier, the mine produced almost 931 thousand tons of commercial iron ore in 2023. Last year, the company operated in the mode of maximum resource conservation. In particular, the company repaired equipment at industrial sites on its own and continued to implement the equipment modernization program.

Sukha Balka mine specializes in underground iron ore mining and has an annual capacity of about 3.1 million tons, and includes Yuvileyna and Frunze mines.
