Located in the Perm region near Russia’s traditional potash production sites, the Verkhnekamskoe potash deposit is one of the largest in the world. Within this deposit, EuroChem Usolskiy has secured rights to over 2.3 billion tonnes of reserves with an average KCI content of 30.8%, providing it with an active mine life of 35-plus years. With a sophisticated mine and processing plant built and entering operations, the facility is currently producing potash at a rate of 1.1 million tonnes (MMT) per year, and well on the way to its full phase one ramped-up capacity of 3.0 MMT of potash annually, expected to be reached in the early-to-mid 2020s with the help of two shafts and four production trains. The second phase comprises the construction of a third shaft, which has already commenced, and an expanded processing plant, which will increase ore mining capacity by nearly 50% to 14.4 MMT, lifting final production capacity to 4.0 MMT.source:https://www.eurochemgroup.com/project/eurochem-usolskiy-potash/
EVRAZ KGOK is one of five key mining companies in Russia. Located in the Sverdlovsk region, 140 km from EVRAZ NTMK, EVRAZ KGOK mines titanomagnetite iron ore with vanadium content at the Gusevogorskoe deposit. The vanadium content makes it possible to produce high-strength grades of alloy steel. Mt. Kachkanar is the only source of vanadium ore in Russia. Surveying of this deposit began in the early 1930s. In 1956, the government of the USSR decided to construct a mining and concentrating complex at Mt. Kachkanar to supply Nizhny Tagil Iron and Steel Works and, later, all steel works in the Urals region with vanadium ore. Over the years, KGOK became one of the leading mining companies in the USSR and in Europe. EVRAZ KGOK has a capacity of about 55 million tonnes of iron ore per year. EVRAZ NTMK is a primary consumer of EVRAZ KGOK’s products. At the moment, EVRAZ KGOK uses three open pits to produce the ore that is then processed by its crushing, processing, sintering and pelletising plants. The final product (i.e. sinter and pellets) is loaded into railway cars and shipped to consumers, including those abroad.source: https://vistgroup.ru/upload/iblock/444/015_0078.jpg
The Port of Sabetta is a new seaport on the western shore of the Ob Bay in the Yamal Peninsula of Russia. The new port is being developed by the Russian gas company Novatek, in partnership with the Government of Russia.The new port will facilitate shipment of LNG from the Yamal facility to the countries of Western Europe, North and South America, and the Asia Pacific region. The is a part of the artic SILK ROAD.The port is expected to export 15 million tonnes of cargo in 2018. Annual shipments of cargo at Sabetta are expected to reach 30.7 million tonnes and 50 million tonnes respectively in the years 2020 and 2030.Yamal LNG project involves the development of Yamal Peninsula’s Yuzhno-Tambeyskoye field, which has estimated gas reserves of 1.3 trillion m³, and the construction of a gas liquefaction plant with an annual capacity to produce 15 million tonnes of LNG and up to one million tonnes of condensate.
