The road leads to the quarry.
Burden removing started in 2009. To reach the ore they need to go 70 m deep.
They also plan to construct a concentrating mill in the nearest future.
The quarry is 6 km long and 400 m deep. It is so huge that it is impossible to take one photo of it at once.
Today the depth of th pit is already 400 m, its width – 7 km.
