MAGADAN, January 13 – RIA Novosti / Prime. LLC « Evenskaya GRK » intends to annually process 1 million tons of ore per year of poor ore from the Sopka Kvartsevaya, Dalnee and Oroch deposits in the Magadan region, follows from the message of Glavgosexpertiza.
The Krasnoyarsk branch of the department studied the design documentation and the results of engineering surveys for the construction of facilities for processing poor ores and issued a positive conclusion.
It is assumed that the ore will be processed using heap leaching technology with subsequent processing of productive solutions by cementation for zinc dust (MerrillCrowe) to obtain gold-bearing zinc sediments. Designer – « Geotechproekt ».
As reported, in March 2020, Polymetal sold the assets of the Omolon hub in the Magadan region to a Russian mining company for 800 million rubles ($ 10 million) and 1% royalty. The assets sold include warehouses of low-grade precious metal ore from the Sopka Kvartsevaya, Dalnee and Oroch deposits, as well as the subsoil use and exploration licenses for the Sopka Kvartsevaya, Dalnee and Irbychan deposits. Mining from these deposits ceased in 2018, and the high grade ore was processed at the Kubaki plant.
According to the Unified State Register of Legal Entities, since the end of March, 100% of Zolot Irbychan has been owned by the Evenskaya Mining Company, the main founder of which (53.49%) is its director Andrey Gorbov.
