We are happy to announce that Nornickel Bystrinsky GOK is going to optimize it’s grinding circuit using our innovative advance control system SMCS.

Bystrinsky GOK processes ores of the Bystrinskoye Deposit to produce copper, magnetite and gold concentrates. The concentrator is designed to have two separate processing streams, both of which were launched in 2018 as part of the pre-commissioning stage.

Copper and magnetite concentrates are sold to third parties, while gold concentrate is further processed at Polar Division.

The Bystrinskoye Deposit is located in the Trans-Baikal Territory, 16 km east of Gazimursky Zavod.

The deposit is developed through open-pit mining at Verkhneildikansky and Bystrinsky-2 mines, with Medny Chainik and Yuzhno-Rodstvenny mines to be commissioned in 2030.

Nornickel also holds licences for geological exploration of the adjacent Bystrinsko-Shirinskoye Deposit and the Zapadno-Shakhtaminskaya and Tsentralno-Shakhtaminskaya Areas.
