Application of modern equipment will reduce the emissions of harmful substances into the atmosphere and will increase the comprehensive use of the subsoil by enhancing the drilling volumes.

Technological features of the machine is the presence of a dry dust collector with a continuous cleaning cycle supplied with a powerful compressor. This allows one to pick up particles of various sizes from the pit face and to form samples. Those will later help to characterize the blasting rock block, what type of the material and with what impurities will go to the processing plant.

The technical re-equipment program adopted in 2017 allowed to implement a set of measures for rational and careful use of the most valuable subsoil component natural magnesium hydroxide (mineral - Brucite). As a result, modern mining surveying equipment was purchased, and a 3D model of the ore deposit was described. Year 2018 was marked by the introduction of new loading and conveyor equipment.

The program also aims to increase the safety and productivity of the employees. All new machines are equipped with anatomical anti-vibration seats, dedusting and air conditioning systems, modern protecting devices and flashing beacons. All workers undergo training at the facility before operation the new equipment.

Further development of the investment program will be aimed at increasing the depth and complexity of processing of raw materials. That will allow to involve a larger volume of mineral resources in mining, to provide new jobs and to maintain the stable supply of high-quality magnesia raw materials for many years.
