Udokan copper deposit
Udokan deposit will become one of the world largest copper deposits having ever been developed.
The deposit is located in the Kalar District of the Transbaikal Territory, at the distance of 30 km from Chara rail station of the Baikal and Amur Railway Road, in the mountains, where there is no any infrastructure and there are extreme climatic conditions: permafrost and high seismic activity. There are also complicated mining conditions and deep and omnipresent interpenetrations of sulphide and oxidized forms of copper-bearing minerals.
An industrial complex, which will be constructed in the field, is designed to process 36,3 million tonnes of ore per year. It will be an open pit development.
Copper content ores will be processed using combined flow sheet subject to deposit specifications.
