The Oroch field in the Magadan region has reserves of 4,5 tonnes of gold and 198 tonnes of silver

Public hearings on the project for the development of the Oroch deposit were held in Evensk, the press service of the government of the Magadan region reported.

The Oroch field, discovered 35 years ago, will begin to be developed in 2014 year. The corresponding decision was made following the results of the public hearings in Evensk. One of the new projects of Polymetal, a gold-silver ore deposit of Oroch, was discussed by representatives of the public and local self-government bodies of the Severo-Even district. A month before the hearings, materials and project documentation for the deposit were posted in the district library. Everyone could get acquainted with them and make their suggestions, comments, ask questions.

According to the press service of the company Polymetal, the Oroch deposit is located in the Severo-Even district at 110 km from the Kubakinskaya ZIF of the Omolon ZRK. Oroch has reserves: 4,5 tons of gold with an 4,0 g / t and 198 tons of silver with an 177 g / t content.

It is planned that the ore will be extracted in the open pit. The resulting ore will be processed at the Kubakinskaya ZIF. The planned period of field operation is 4 years. According to the managing director of OOO Omolonskaya Zolotorudnaya Kompaniya Vladimir Bloshkin this year, the field will actively create a production infrastructure. Mining will begin in 2015 year. Employees of Polymetal are simultaneously implementing several complex infrastructure projects to begin commercial development of the field. One of the most important is the construction of the road. It will be built taking into account the results of the archaeological survey of the Oroch field.

Polymetal applies a comprehensive approach to assessing the potential impact of the development of the field on the ecological state of the area:
“We apply the most modern solutions in the field of ecology and nature conservation in the North, the new field will be developed taking into account all environmental standards,” said Tatiana Klimenko, head of the ecology department. She also noted that the company has many years of experience in the development of deposits, so environmental risks during the work will be minimized. In the area of ​​the Oroch deposit there are no specially protected natural areas of federal, regional or local importance, as well as the places of permanent residence of the small indigenous peoples of the North.

As explained by Vladimir Bloshkin, all measures were taken to minimize possible damage to the ecology of this territory, a comprehensive survey of the area was carried out, in which archaeological and ichthyological surveys were additionally included.

- To protect the unique remains of ancient settlements located on this territory, the direction of the winter road has been changed, and to protect the Oroch stream, a coastal dam will be built. All this leads to an increase in the cost of the project, but it allows us to have a minimal impact on the environment, which is more important for us.

Vladimir Bloshkin added that 150 jobs would be created for the industrial development of the Oroch deposit, involving local people as well.
