MINING Ore body of the copper-molybdenum deposit in the “Erdenetiin-Ovoo” stretches to the west from the east and consists of 4 main parts, including Central, North –western, South-eastern and Tsagaanchuluut. The ore body of copper-molybdenum consists of the minerals including chalcosine, chalcopyrite, turquoise, bornite, brochantite, azurite, molybdenite), delafossite, tenorite, sericite and other minerals. Now The North –western part is mined by open method. The length of pit in the primary mining is approx. 2500 m, the width is approx.1500 m, the lowest level is 1265 m and the depth has been reached up to 135 m. The top of the mount was 1606m from the sea level in the initial period of operation. The pit is planned to have the ledge height of 15 m, the sidewall of 370-420, the least stripping area of 45-50 m. LIEBHERR-994B hydraulic excavators from Germany, chain excavators including EKG-10 and EKG-15 from Russia operate for the mining works and drilling machine СБШ-250 MHA-32 are used for drilling. Chain and wheeled bulldozers such as Liebherr PR-764, Komatsu D-275A, 824G, WD-500, wheeled loaders L-581, WA 800, WA 600 and, motograders GD-825, CAT 16H etc., from USA, Japan, and Germany are used for spoil heap, road construction and repair for technological haulage.

PROCESSING

Cu

The Mineral Processing Plant is the main production unit with technological circuits including ore crushing, grinding, flotation, filtration, drying, and shipping of the copper and molybdenum concentrates and collection of technological wastes. Two technological lines for ore preparation operate in this plant. The first line is capable to process 20.5 million tons of ore per year and it crushes ore in three stages using cone crushers and conveys the crushed ore for 2-stage grinding processes using mills МШЦ 5.5 х 6.5, МШЦ 5.8 х 6.9 and МШЦ 3.2 х 4.5. The second line is autogenic grinding section with the annual capacity to receive 5.150 million tons of ore for grinding. Ore is crushed using jaw crushers and grinded by the autogenic grinder MMC-90x30 with volume 160 cubic meters in the first stage and by the ball mill МШЦ 5.5 х 6.5 with the volume 140 cubic meters in the second stage and the grinded ore goes to the grinding and enrichment section autogenously in the form of pulp.

THE MINERAL PROCESSING PLANT The future commissioning of the Section 6 enables us to process 35 million tons of ore per annum. Ore processing technology operates with flotation methods and the copper and molybdenum concentrate is extracted using collective flotation, copper and molybdenum-pyrite and separation process. Waste pulp discharging from the concentration process is compressed to the disposal pond. The precipitated water in the pond is recycled for technological processes. Mineral Processing Plant produces copper and molybdenum concentrates which meet international standards.
