Geographically, the company is located in the city of Zhitikara, Kostanay region, 200 km southwards to the regional center, e.g. the city of Kostanay.


The company comprises: a mining and conveyor complex,  a processing complex, a motor transport company, Electricity Board and a number of specialized services and divisions.  Dzhetygara chrysotile – asbestos deposit is being developed by open pit mining. It is enhanced by transport development system with external dumping. Overburden and mining operations are performed with horizon layout using blast hole drilling. The modular dimensions of the open-pit field according to the plan are: its length – 4000m, width – 1600m, depth – 290m (design depth – 640m).

The ore mined in the open-pit is the raw material for the processing plant.

The ore treatment process is represented by a complicated processing scheme, including:

– ore cleaning;

– technology of ore processing;

packaging of finished products.

As a result of chrysotile-asbestos ore processing, depending on the length of the fiber, chrysotile asbestos of 3-6 groups and 12 grades, is obtained. Its quality corresponds to the established GOST standards and meets the consumer’s requirements. No wonder that the number of regular consumers has been growing for the last years.

 Apart of the main divisions, the company has some service facilities, such as: a warehouse, a non-state fire-fighting service, a labor protection and industrial safety service, a workshop for the processing of inert materials.
