“ Itera “ will put MMK in coalNGK “ Itera “ has offered Magnitogorsk metkombinatu (MMK) in common to develop the second for stocks of coal a deposit of Russia - Apsatsky in Transbaikalia. For its development it is required all to $500 million at perspective extraction of 2,5 million t coal in a year. MMK thus can solve for itself a problem of maintenance to a quarter of requirements for coal, “ Itera “ considers the project as a starting point for expansion to metallurgy.
the governor of the Chita region Ravil Geniatulin has told about plans “ Itera “ and MMK to create the joint venture for development of the Apsatsky coal-field. Yesterday in MMK “ “ have confirmed reception of the offer from “ Itera “ however have specified that the final decision while is not present. “ We estimate efficiency and technical aspects of the project “ - Elena Azovtseva has specified the representative of the company. In “ to Itera “ “ “ Also have confirmed that have made to metallurgists the proposal on joint coal mining. “ the deposit can become a basis for the further development of unique deposits of copper, iron ore, gold, nickel and the platinum, the located in Irkutsk and Chita areas “ - the president " has explained; Itera “ Igor Makarov.
Open Company “ the Arctic workings out “ entering in MGK “ Itera “ became the winner of auction on the right of working out of the Apsatsky deposit of coked coals in April. For an active with resources in 2,2 mlrd t coal and 55 mlrd cubic metre of gas the company has paid 1,32 mlrd rbl.
By Evgenie Rjabkova`s estimations from IK “ Antanta PioGlobal “ in deposit working out it is necessary to enclose $150 - 200 million, however even more zatratnym for the investor there can be a building of a branch line to BAMa which cost from - for complexities of a relief can reach $200 - 280 million The analyst considers such expenses for development “ quite proved, taking into account shortage of coked coal for metallurgy both on Russian, and on world the markets “.
the Main geologist of Open Company “ Nafta - Moscow “ Alexander Samoilov considers creation of the joint venture with “ Itera “ the perspective project for MMK. “ the Prices for coked coals have strongly grown (twice from the beginning of year. - “ “ ) and all metallurgists want to have the deposits that the manufacture cost price was though a bit more cheaply “ - mister Samoilov marks. Evgenie Rjabkov adds that for MMK at which unlike other metallurgists few own source of raw materials, is interesting “ any more or less large coal deposit “. By calculations of an analyst, on Apsatsky it is possible to extract 2 million t coked coal and 500 thousand t the power. “ MMK consumes 7,5 million t coked coal, that is about 25 % of requirements of industrial complex " are potentially capable to satisfy a deposit; - mister Rjabkov specifies.
At MMK on the end of half-year there was a small level of a pure debt - $489 million, therefore the company can quite find money for this project, leading expert UK " marks; finam Management “ Dmitry Baranov. Analysts believe that for development Apsatsky MMK can involve the coal company “ Belon “ in which 41,3 % own - if will manage to finish the share to the control.
