Khokhlovskoye Project Got Favorable Expert Review
The Khokhlovskoye deposit is being developed by Dalur, JSC (part of the Mining Division of Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation/managed by ARMZ Uranium Holding Co.), while the project was elaborated by VNIPIpromtechnologii, JSC (Engineering Center of ARMZ Uranium Holding Co.). «Now at the Khokhlovskoye deposit, we are developing the Central lode. The favorable opinion from Glavgosekspertiza of Russia will allow us to start erecting infrastructure and further developing three more veins, such as Western, Eastern and Far Eastern lodes,» said Dinis Ezhurov, Director General of Dalur, JSC.
The favorable opinion from the State Expert Review Authority (Glavgosekspertiza of Russia) means that the construction of infrastructure and development of the lodes will be in full conformity with all the relevant requirements. The operations involve using environmentally friendly technologies to produce the strategic metal efficiently and safely for the environment. All the supplies have the required certificates and meet the requirements of process/environmental standards; this ensures no harmful effects on human health.
Previously, residents of the Shumikhinsky district approved the Khokhlovskoye project at the public hearings.
The core facility will be the second local sorption unit. When commissioned, it will allow the enterprise to process product solutions coming from the lodes, with the processing capacity of 900 cubic meters per hour. This will double the extraction of uranium at the Khokhlovskoye deposit, and the total production in the Trans-Urals will remain at the same level. «Any deposit can be developed for a certain time until all useful components are totally depleted. The Khokhlovskoye project will compensate for a decrease in production at the Dalmatovskoye deposit as the development of the latter is coming to completion in accordance with the schedule,» said Dinis Ezhurov. It should be noted that approximately 60 new jobs would be created at the Khokhlovskoye field in 2022. The amount of assistance for socially oriented projects is also increasing year after year. In particular, in 2021 the uranium enterprise sponsored the renovation of School No. 9 and Kindergarten No. 12 and supported the launch of a sambo martial art club. In 2022, it will continue to provide support to educational institutions and will repair the roads within the Trusilovsky rural community.
In the Shumikhinsky district, Dalur, JSC continues to build new railroad facilities and connected access roads. Moreover, it has commissioned 110/10 kV electrical substation and completed the construction and installation work to erect a water tower, while the construction of a warehouse is coming to the end.
