Slavsky PIMCU Continues Developing Existing Mines
4d-617 stope has been put into operation at PIMCU’s Underground Mine No. 1; thereby, the increase in the key reserves will exceed 181 tons of uranium.
The stope is located in the southwestern part of the Vostochny site within the exploration boundaries.
In order to prepare the stope for operation, mine tunnellers drove 4 vertical workings. The team of Mine No.1 carried out operational and exploration works, mounted manway raises, and installed roadway supports. They also mounted all necessary communication lines.
Aleksey Tyukavkin, Acting Director of PIMCU’s Underground Mine No.1: «Putting into operation the new 4d-617 stope allows us to increase the mineral resource base and to create new jobs. When developing the stope, we will use modern shortwall battery-powered ARGO L140B load-haul-dumper.»
