Due to the processing of reserves of the Middle stretch of the Mezhrurechenskiy Titanium Ore Deposit at Irshansk Mining and Processing Plant, PJSC UMCC subsidiary, in 2017, the plant plans to transfer capacities of open-pit mine No. 7 to processing of own middling products, accumulated over the years of operation of the open-pit mine during the development of Emilivskiy and Middle stretches of the deposit.
 
The middling  products of processing of the open-pit mine's plant accumulated in the tailings storage and processed space of Emilivskiy stretch. Transfer of production capacities is planned for July 2017. It will be preceded by a stage of preparatory work that will last one month.
 
This stage includes a change in the technological scheme of processing, taking into account the specifics of middling products processing, strengthening the carrying metal structures of the plant, moving of the mining equipment (waterpipe, tailings pipe, walking excavators), as well as reconstruction of the recycling water supply system.
 
The volume of middling products (around 2.5 mn m3) allows to process it for nearly three years with output volume at 40,000 t per year. Conditions of its deposit allow not to perform mining and preparatory works, which considerably reduces production costs.
