JSC Giprotsvetmet will prepare a project documentation for mining of a rock salt field.

The specialized scientific institute JSC Giprotsvetmet which is a part of the "RT-Global Resources" Research and production center (100% subsidiary of the Rostec Corporation), was recognized on April, 12 as the winner of an open competition for the right to contract on writing of design documentation on the project of development of Belbazhsky field of rock salt (Nizhny Novgorod Region).

JSC "Giprotsvetmet" - one of the research centers for scientific and production studying of industrial problems of nonferrous metallurgy, oldest in the Russian Federation. The institute specializes in ensuring resource and technological examination for support of mineral and raw-material projects of the Rostec Corporation in the Russian Federation and foreign countries, formation of the center of competence for rendering services in development of technologies of production, enrichment, processing of mineral and technogenic raw materials of metals and mining and chemical ores with receiving final products, design of profile productions.

Works on creation of project documentation for development of Belbazhsky field of rock salt will be carried out with using of the advanced scientific and practical developments of the "RT-Global Resources" research and production center.

In 2015 "RT-Global resources" initiated the process of creation in he perimeter of the company of specialized EPC(M) contractor which will be able to render a full range of services in mining industry and metallurgy from a field assessment stage to automation of production processes, including EPC(M) - services and complex IT-solutions. The conclusion of a series of transactions (purchase of 25%+1 stocks of CJSC "Rosengineering" and purchase of 50% of stocks of JSC "RIVS-project") served expansion of competences of "RT-GR" in the field of mineral processing and strengthened synergetic effect at interaction with the "RT-Global Resources" research and production center (consisting of JSC "Giprotsvetmet", JSC Institute "Gintsvetmet", "VIOGEM", "GIGHS").


Total explored reserves of salt of Belbazhsky field exceed 2 billion tons. Development of rock salt has a high economic value for considerable number of sectors of the Russian and world economy - the food and chemical industry, ferrous and nonferrous metallurgy, mechanical engineering and metal working.
