NGK Resource plans to invest more than 300 million rubles in additional exploration of the field near Nikolaevsky-on-Amur
The boundaries of the territory of the advanced social and economic development of "Mykolayivsk" have been expanded specifically so that the beneficiary of benefits and support is another enterprise - the gold mining company NGK Resource. Why expand the boundaries of the TOP, found out EastRussia.
"I was impressed by the operational efficiency of the Corporation for the Development of the Far East," Valery Guminsky, General Director of NGK Resource, said. - We are helped in all organizational aspects. I worked in Yakutia, Altai, Transbaikalia and I can say that in the Far East, really comfortable conditions for doing business have been created.
NGK Resource will develop the Polyanka gold deposit, located at 80 km from Nikolaevsk-on-Amur. According to the Ministry of Natural Resources of the Khabarovsk Territory, the balance reserves of the field are estimated at more than 12 tons of gold and 27 tons of silver. It is planned to extract ore in an open way. To obtain gold, the heap leach method will be used. The annual volume of ore extraction will be about 1,2 million tons, the production of ligature gold - 1,3 tons. Further ingots will be sent for refining.
Until 2012, the license for development of the Polyanka deposit was owned by Nizhneamurskaya Mining Company LLC. She received permission to mine gold in 2011. However, a year later the company was sold to NGK Resource LLC, and the license was transferred to a new owner. The founder of NGK Resource is the Cyprus offshore company Dubaste Investments Limited. Owners of this company did not disclose the information, however, in Resource, they explained that it has several founders "who have been engaged in gold mining in the region for a long time."
Investors plan to invest in the project more than 3 billion rubles, of which in the construction of the production complex - over 2,5 billion rubles.
"We will build the enterprise on our own," Valery Guminsky explains. - If you hire a contractor, it will cost several times more - about 8 billion rubles.
First of all, a hostel for workers will be built. At the beginning of this year, construction of an enrichment plant, a crushing and sorting complex and a laboratory will begin. According to Valery Guminsky, the road that will provide year-round transportation with Polyanka, the enterprise has already built up at its own expense.
Investors are expected to start production in less than a year.
“We plan to pour the first gold bar from the Polyanka deposit on October 20, the day of the 80th anniversary of the Khabarovsk Territory,” says Valery Guminsky.
Initially, the company will create 260 workplaces, after reaching the design capacity, their number will increase to 500.
Having become a resident of the TOR "Nikolaevsk", NGK "Resource" receives not only tax benefits, but also state support in the development of the necessary infrastructure. Now one of the most pressing issues for the company is the connection to the gas pipeline.
"We will have an autonomous power station with the capacity of 2,5 MW," explains Valery Guminsky. - It consumes just a huge amount of diesel fuel. And it costs a lot - about 64 rubles per liter. Of these, 14 rubles worth its delivery by road to the field. Shipping by sea will cost from 4 to 6 rubles per liter. However, the power plant can also run on natural gas. Its cost is only 6 rubles per kilogram. But for this it is necessary to connect to the line of the gas pipeline passing near the deposit. Now the KRVV is helping us in this matter.
The plans of NGK Resource also include additional exploration of the Polyanka deposit. This is planned to spend about 330 million rubles.
"There are approved reserves, but we believe that this is not the limit for this field," explains the head of the enterprise. - Therefore, we will invest in additional exploration. In addition, there are two more prospective ore shows - Gold Hill and the Savings. In the search and evaluation work on these sites, we plan to invest about 100 million rubles.
In 2017, there was a clear trend towards an increase in ore gold production in the region. According to the regional Ministry of Natural Resources, by the end of the year, more than 22 tons of precious metal will probably be mined in the Khabarovsk Territory. The last record - 21,1 tons of gold - was set in 2004. According to the head of the subsoil use department of the Ministry of Natural Resources of the Khabarovsk Territory, Nikolai Ishchuk, for 10 months of 2017, the growth of ore gold production was 22,9%.
Leaders in the extraction of ore gold in the region remain the enterprises of the Polymetal Group: Resources Albazino and Svetloye. Also, a significant excess of production volumes showed the company Mnogovershinnoye (owned by GC Russdragmet) and Amur Gold (part of the GC Russian Platinum).
