CuMo MINING

Ore body of the copper-molybdenum deposit in the “Erdenetiin-Ovoo� stretches to the west from the east, 25 km in the length and 1.5-3 km in the width and consists of 4 main parts. 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 120 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, bench of 30 m and the least stripping area of 50 m. The ore body of copper-molybdenum consists of the minerals including chalcosine (Cu2S), chalcopyrite (CuFeS2), turquoise, bornite (Cu5FeS4), brochantite (Cu4SO4(OH)6), azurite (Cu3(CO3)2(OH)2), molybdenite (MoS2), delafossite (CuFeO2), tenorite (CuO), sericite and other minerals.

Today LIEBHERR-994B hydraulic excavators from Germany, chain excavators including ЭКГ-10 and ЭКГ-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 PK-764, Komatsu D-275A, WD-500, Caterpillar 824G, wheeled loaders L-581, WA 800, WA 600 and, motograders GD-825, CAT 16G etc., from USA, Japan, and Germany are used for spoil heap, road construction and repair for technological haulage. A powerful maintenance centre is running to perform all kinds of repair of mining equipment. The open pit annually produces 15000 tons of water resistant emulsion explosives. Australian “Orika Exsel” has been used for blasting and since 2009, the blasting has been conducted using the remote control blasting devices and apparatus from “Rothenbuhler engineering”, USA.

CuMo PROCESSING

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. Two technological lines for ore preparation are operated 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 million tons of ore for grinding. The future commissioning of the Section 6 enables us to process 35 million tons of ore per annum.

10


11

Ore is crushed using jaw crushers and grinded by the autogenic grinder MMC-90x30 having the 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 enrichment section autogenously in the form of pulp. Ore processing technology is operated in collective flotation methods and the copper and molybdenum concentrate is extracted using separation process. Waste pulp 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.

Rougher concentrate section was launched into operations and the annual capacity to process ore had reached 24 million tons. Year of 2001 Thanks to a complete technical modernization of coupled section I, the ore processing capacity of the same section reached up to 10 million tons. Year of 2002 Launched the BELAZ-75145 heavy Dump trucks, with capacity load of 130 thousand tons, for transportations at Vehicle Transport Unit. Year of 2005 Launched the “LIEBHERR” excavators, with a bucket volume capacity of 18 m3, for transportations at Open Pit mine. “EMC produced 3 million tons of copper in concentrate since its commencement of operation. Year of 2006 Thanks to a complete capacity achievements of the 5th stage of operations of Mineral processing plant, the designed capacity had been increased by 50 percent, allows processing 6 million tons of ore annually. Year of 2008 Chained excavator ЭКГ-15, the first in Mongolia , with capacity for loading 15 m3 of ore was launched. Meeting for 30th Anniversary of Erdenet Mining Corporation was held on December 13, 2010. Year of 2010 Launched the fully replaced Section#3 of which the capacity to process 6 million tons of ore per annum. Year of 2011 Replaced and commissioned the flotation Section #4 at the Mineral Processing Plant. Year of 2012 Reached the ore processing capacity up to 26.0 million tons. Year of 2013 Replaced and launched the flotation Section #6 at the Mineral Processing Plant.

FORWARD THE DEVELOPMENT

Strategy

CuMo

According to the strategic plan of development of Erdenet Mining Corporation for the years 2010-2015 /until 2020/, approved by the 43rd Board Session, Erdenet Mining Corporation has set the tasks: to improve the equipment of the plant, to extend the ore processing capacity up to 35 million tons per a year, to reduce cost of unit product, to produce a final product with added value by introducing new techniques and technologies, which are environmentally-friendly and energy saving. Increase of the reserves of raw materials is essential in order to ensure possibility of the long-term operation with high capacity. We planned to do much more for the purpose to increase raw materials and as a result, the lifetime of the operation will be extended. We see that the reserve should be increased thanks to the geological survey and prospection.

Innovations In 2005, a productivity movement titled Productivity Improvement “Erdenet Program” has been commenced at the Mineral Processing Plant, Erdenet Mining Corporation. In this framework, numbers of creative innovations and initiatives have been realized thanks to the improvements on employees’ innovative attitudes. In order to adopt this practice, a program “Khun Erdene” has been conducted successfully since 2011. Based on the requisites to make the new ideas and initiatives suggested by the employees as innovations, the regulation “Adoption of innovation system to Erdenet Mining Corporation” has been implemented since 2003. Adoption of the innovation system ensures each of the employees to propose their intellectual creations or works or to give their real contributions to the productivity oriented works including production efficiency, enhancement of productivity, environmental protection, labor safety, hygienic improvement, etc.
