In current year volumes of extraction of iron ore of mine to them. Artema PJSC "ArcelorMittal Kryviy Rih" is planned to increase to 1.013 million tons (in 2017 - 757.6 thousand tons). This will allow the company to fully meet its needs in sinter ore.
The increase in the volume of underground mining will be achieved thanks to the launch of the crushing and bunker complex of the horizon - 1 135 meters and the inclined-transport production No. 2. Only on this horizon of the mine production will grow threefold.
Earlier here, for lifting the ore to the surface, trolleys and crates were used, the process was laborious and time consuming. The new complex will promptly transport the extracted ore with the help of the existing technological chain in the mine and skip hoisting. For this purpose, a belt conveyor with a total length of 380 meters with an inclination angle of 16 degrees is installed. The maximum productivity of the conveyor is 400 tons per hour.
