Now at the Voslobeni mineare carried out the following working categories:
a dolomite exploitation by mining to date, namely: industrial blasting explosives placed in bore holes, unrocked mass loading using the dump and transport excavator dolomite processing platform size.
b. Mass processing of dolomite by crushing and screening operations multitreaptă volume in a closed circuit - open.
A. CHARACTERIZATION OF THE USEFUL MINERAL SUBSTANCE
The useful mineral substance the makes the subject of the general exploitation in the Voslobeni mining objective is the dolomite.
Voslobeni deposit are confined within dolomite resources - which were investigated by geological work, which consists of approx. 46 million tons.
Qualitative characteristics of dolomite are determined on a representative sample in the laboratory Cimprogetti: calcium carbonate (CaCO3): 55.19% magnesium carbonate (MgCO3): 43.44%, other compounds: 1.37%.
CHEMICAL ANALISYS REPORT –CIMPROGETTI LABORATORY
Dolomite resources of the Voslobeni deposit extend the northern perimeter of operation set (0.639 km2) which means that in terms of quantity it can increase significantly.
A. BUSINESS OPORTUNITIES
The dolomite that makes the subject of the mine exploitation in Voslobeni can be valued as finished products, as follows:
a. Granulometry products
These products are part of the company's current product range, with grading certificates that sorts in terms of compliance (quality):
- 0 – 4 mm,
- 4 – 8 mm,
- 8 – 16 mm,
- 16 – 31,5 mm,
- 0 – 63 mm.
a. Dolomitic lime.
Currently, the company has an ongoing project to build a factory of dolomitic lime and derivatives with a daily production capacity of 400 tons.
The whole project was based on the best available techniques for making lime that exists on the market, on the guidelines and onthe implementation of Directive 2008/1/EC of the European Parliament and advise on prevention and control integrated pollution (IPPC) in the cement, lime and magnesium oxide.
The unit has logistical support:
F. raw material (quantity and quality),
G. utilities (electricity, gas, water, industrial water)
H. road and rail accesses,
I. land (career, technology platform, seizures),
necessary for its achievement and has as premises its very good results obtained in the investigations and tests conducted by the Cimprogetti company (Italy).
The project also has the notice of the water and environmental approval needed to build this building.
Building this plant in Romania would be a premiere because there are currently no dolomitic lime produced, the demand being fully covered by imports.
The unextinguished dolomitic lime obtained from the furnace has an active substance content (CaO + MgO) of 97.42%, which is much higher standardized EN 459-1 / 2003, DL 85.
This lime is suitable for further derivatives: lime paste and hydrated lime.
Tests by Cimprogetti revealed that the unextinguished dolomitic lime obtained performs better in moisture than other dolimitic limes.
Due to a very good quality in the dolomitic lime obtained, it can be used as raw material for magnesium in electrolytic or thermal processes. Therefore, in the 80’s several tests were conducted on a pilot scale on the Voslobeni dolomite from the chloro complex products - sodium Ocna Mures and showed promising results.
The investment recovery period is of 5-6 years.
Voslobeni mining objective is a feasible business opportunity that allows coverage of a niche market (product grading, dolomitic lime, magnesium) that has no counterpart in Romania.
Competitive advantages, namely:
G. operating legally entitled,
H. legal right to use the land,
I. the operational right
J. Quantitative and qualitative characteristics of mineral resources,
K. state of the project,
L. possibilities for utilities connection,
M. unlimited accesses to road and rail transport routes,
N. existing customer base,
O. ownership structure, etc..
combined with opportunities for expansion and diversification of business offers the business a market value of approx. 50 million.
