Facility

EVRAZ KGOK (Russia)

EVRAZ KGOK is located in the Sverdlovsk region, around 140 kilometres from EVRAZ NTMK, its primary consumer. EVRAZ KGOK develops the Gusevogorskoye deposit of titanium magnetite ores, which contain vanadium, allowing production of high-tensile alloyed steel products. EVRAZ KGOK produces sinter and pellets rich in vanadium oxide, which are shipped by rail to end consumers.

Key Developments

EVRAZ KGOK

Produced more than 59 million tonnes of iron ore in 2015. A decision was made to postpone the start of new dump construction untill 2022.

Evrazruda

In the project to reconstruct the Sheregesh mine, scheduled target production volume was achieved (4.2 million tonnes in 2015 compared with 2.2 million tonnes in 2014). It was decided to continue operation without additional CAPEX at the Abagure’s ore stockpile. Options to extend operation of Tashtagol mine untill 2025 were considered.

EVRAZ Sukha Balka

Production was launched of ore with an iron content of more than 60% (114 thousand tonnes) for EVRAZ DMZ Petrovskogo.

Timir

License extension has been granted. Feasibility study continued.

Outlook

EVRAZ intends to maintain production level and high capacity utilisation as well as continue implementation of the key investment projects according to the plan.
