On November 21 Polyus Verninskoye gold output exceeded 7 tons, and the next day it beat the whole 2018 output – 7024 kg.
The increase in output is due to the replacement of machinery.
In particular, the Verninskiy Mining and Processing Works now operates a Komatsu HD-1500-8 trucks with the lifting capacity of 142 tons.
A new SmartROC D65 drilling machine has been purchased.
In summer a new WK-20 excavator with the 20-cubic meter ladle was commissioned.
Polyus Verninskoye intends to increase the capacity of its gold-extracting factory to 3.5 million tons of ore per year. (Ukrainian metal)
