Korshunov Mining Plant Boosts Stripping

In May, Korshunov Mining Plant (part of Mechel Group) increased stripping volumes by 48% year-on-year, moving 856,000 cubic meters of rock mass every month.

Stripping works at iron ore deposits is necessary for further mining and processing. Both of the plant’s deposits demonstrated major growth year-on-year, with Korshunov Open Pit stepping up stripping by 37% and Rudnogorsky Pit by 17%.

“We continue implementing our program on restoring the mine transport fleet. It will enable us not only to preserve what level of iron ore mining we have, but to build on it,” Korshunov Mining Plant’s Managing Director Mikhail Mazhukin explained.
