A winder will be arranged between levels 990-1070-1150 m for transporting people. We will proceed with developing the workers’ and haulage equipment positioning system in a shaft that allows a mine operator to keep track of workers and equipment under the ground online due to special technical equipment”, said Yuriy Dolmatov, Deputy Director of Gaysky GOK for Capital Construction.
About 250 million rubles will be invested in technical re-equipment of concentrator, in particular, in replacement and installation of new floatation and pump equipment, ventilation plants and new filter presses.

In the long term, a step-by-step implementation of strategic development program of PJSC “Gaysky GOK” will allow boosting underground mine performance up to 9 million tons of ore per annum and concentrator performance up to 10 million tons per annum.
