The new production capacity will provide the enterprise with work for the next 4 months
The Sukha Balka mine, which is part of the DCH group, launched a new unit at the Yuvileyna mine with reserves of 46,500 tons of iron ore at the end of October. This is reported in the corporate newspaper DCH Steel.
Blocks 31-37 are located in the Golovny deposit at a horizon of -1340 meters. The production capacity reserves will ensure the company’s operation for the next four months. The iron content in the ore is over 58%.
Technological processes at this production site are carried out using modern self-propelled mining equipment. This approach will increase the efficiency of technological processes. The miners of section No. 7 were engaged in cutting operations. Mining operations will be carried out by miners of section No. 17.
«Using modern equipment will allow miners to mine at this production facility for four months. It is expected that this will have a positive effect on the final performance indicators of the mine in the current year,» the company summarizes.
In September, Sukha Balka started production at the Frunze mine after almost a year of downtime.
