RMK masters the East

RMK masters the East

The President of the Russian Copper Company (AO RMK), Vsevolod Levin, and the Governor of the Khabarovsk Territory, Sergey Furgal, signed an agreement on cooperation in the development of the mining industry in the region. The signing ceremony took place on February 14 of the year on the site of the Russian investment forum "Sochi-2019".

The parties agreed to develop cooperation in the exploration of new deposits in the Khabarovsk Territory, as well as the implementation of investment projects in the field of mining and mineral processing using the best available technologies and the most environmentally friendly solutions.

The regional government, in particular, expressed its intention to support RCC in the implementation of the project for the development of the Malmyzhskoye gold-copper-porphyry deposit located in the Nanaisky district of the Khabarovsk Territory. Last year, RMK acquired Amur Minerals LLC, which owns the license to develop the Malmyzhskoye field.

The development of the Malmyzhskoye field will be one of the most ambitious and high-tech projects in the global mining industry. Its implementation is of high importance for the solution of the priority state task for the development of the Russian Far East.

The Malmyzhskoye porphyry gold-copper deposit was discovered in 2006. Its balance reserves are estimated at 5,156 million tons of copper and 278 tons of gold. The average copper content in the ore 0,41%, gold - 0,22 g / t.

The RMK Group plans to build a modern mining and processing plant at the deposit, which will process up to 35 million tons of ore per year. Investments in the project will be about 115 billion rubles.

Currently, exploration continues at the field. The construction of the mining and processing plant is planned to begin in 2021 year after the completion of the design work and the passage of all necessary procedures for the coordination of the project.



It is planned that the company will create 1,4 thousands of high-tech jobs. Since one of the priorities of the personnel policy of the RMK is the development of the labor market in the presence areas, employment will be given preference to local specialists, including residents of the Nanaisky and Amursky districts of the Khabarovsk Territory. The total amount of deductions to budgets of different levels and extrabudgetary funds during the operation of the enterprise will exceed 100 billion rubles.

Governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Sergey Furgal: “The Malmyzhskoye deposit is one of the largest copper deposits in Russia at the moment. This project can be one of the largest in the mining industry in the world. But it is also important for us that when such an investor comes to us, he is ready not only to take, but also to help develop the territory in which he works. The government of the Khabarovsk Territory is open to such projects. ”

President of RCC Vsevolod Levin: “Today, the assets of the Russian Copper Company are concentrated mainly in the Urals and in Kazakhstan. The development of the Malmyzhskoye field will be for us the first project in the Far East. The rich natural resources and favorable geographical position together with support from the Russian government and the leadership of the Khabarovsk Territory make this project extremely attractive and promising for us. Over the 15 years of work, we have accumulated a unique experience for our country in the construction of modern, efficient and environmentally friendly mining enterprises. And we are ready to bring our advanced technologies and expertise in the field of mining and mineral processing to the Far East. In addition, RCC always strives to be a reliable social partner for the areas of presence, creating favorable conditions for the socio-economic development of local communities. ”.
