newspaper “Narodnoye Slovo” | In INDUSTRIAL PROGRESS RUSLE

Today Uzbekistan in the world knows not only as a country on whose territory there were unique architectural monuments and grown cotton, but also as a country with a dynamic based on the best available technology economy. And the productive capacity of the republic and high and rising. Advances domestic scholars to create new knowledge, their products are in great demand in the world market. This is evidenced by increasing from year to year performance of exports of finished products in all sectors of the economy.

These are real and tangible results of the President Islam Karimov aimed at the establishment in Uzbekistan strong market economy, creating the most favorable conditions for business development, results including the recovery of domestic industry. Notably, in order to meet its needs for a scarce commodity earlier increasingly used effectively waste production.

Another vivid example is the development of Navoi mining and smelting plant and Uzbek-Russian joint venture "I ngichki Metals" new product-sheelit concentrate. Symbolically, the happy event occurred on the eve of the 15th anniversary of the independence of the Republic of Uzbekistan.

Sheelit concentrate raw material-for tungsten and its alloys. It is made from man-waste mine Ingichka and converted on technology created by industrial and Russian company "I ntegra Mining is the main founders of JV" I ngichki Metals ".

The concentrate will be supplied to Uzbek complex and high-temperature refractory metals (UzCHTRM), which will be able to restore their production of tungsten-based domestic products.

Given the strategic significance of the problem, at the initiative of industrial and JV "Ingichki Metals UzCHTRM " in 2006-2007 will receive products at discount prices of 30-40 tons per month and subsequently at least 100 tons per month.

For the concentrate in the village Ingichka a production processing tailings Ingichkinsk concentrating mill.

Director JV "I ngichki Metals" on the Russian side Anton Kantsel in an interview said that the new products are generating great interest in the world market, marking the industrial progress of Uzbekistan and growing under the leadership of President Islam Karimov, technical and scientific potential.

Uzbek-Russian joint venture "I ngichki Metals" created in December 2005 to overhaul industrial waste production of mining and smelting plants. One of the first such facilities were tails. Ingichkinsk CPP accumulated more than 20 years of mining and processing ore deposits Ingichki. These tailings are great man oilfield containing about 10,000 tons sheelit - basic mineral-media tungsten.

Human-caused waste will be processed on the spot, making it possible to create 100-150 new jobs. In the same village with the launch of new production will be many social problems.

According to the feasibility study, construction of the reprocessing business in the village Ingichka begin in the first quarter of 2007 and by the end of this year is scheduled to receive the first product. Ahead of those plans, JV purchased 65,000 tones of non sheelit ore this year , which was put near Ingichkinsk CPP to sort it and enrich sheelit to concentrate, which is in great demand abroad. JV also planned to develop business through export sheelit concentrate, which could provide a significant infusion of money. And the price for the period 2004 - 2005 on the world market has increased threefold.

But life has changed. The founders were unanimous in the next few years to abandon exports sheelit concentrate UzCHTRM and sell it at subsidized prices. This approach significantly reduced the expected JV profit , but enabled participants with greater responsibility for the problem and contribute to the development of the national economy. Reasonable and prudent decision in the long term is always better than hankering for short-term profit.

In response to the decision, the JV and its founders are graduates of Navoi, Uchkuduka, Ingichki, Tashkent and Moscow, as well as prominent scholars-miners, steel workers, technologists, with great effort to overcome technical and organizational difficulties in the short term to ensure the delivery and processing of the first lot of ore (2200 tons) of Chigiriksk MMP dressing plant, which is located in Tashkent Disrtict. There, the first certified sheelit tons of concentrate, which is used to, the production of tungsten products - shtabikov, wire and various alloys.

Currently, the JV is refitting factories and preparing for the regular production of concentrate a UzCHTRM needs. To that end, after processing of stockpiled ore, it plans to exploit mineral resources of tungsten ore deposits Ingichka, and then proceed to the processing Ingichkinskoy CPP taillings. Of secondary waste is planned bricks, shlakoblok, bentonite, and then plaster, which also would open additional jobs.

Thus, Uzbekistan will perform their duties and industrial giant UzCHTRM be born again and became leaders in their industry.

Later in addition to production sheelit concentrate JV "I ngichki Metals" will involve processing technological fields other metals, using a new and unique technology.

This is another good result of the effectiveness of the country's wide-ranging reforms being undertaken for the sake of the prosperity of the country and further improve the people's living.

The efforts of the organizers and participants in a new production run which became the next step in strengthening the capacity of the domestic economy, judged on merit. They expressed thanks on behalf of the government of the Republic of Uzbekistan.

newspaper “Pravda Vostoka” | VOLFRAM FROM technological WASTE

The first sheelit (tungsten) batch concentrate obtained enrichment mill NMMP in Chigorin metropolitan area. Converting lot ore and the first tons of concentrate certified provide together young professionals Navoi, Uchkuduka, Ingichki, Tashkent and Moscow, as well as renowned scholars-miners, metalworkers and technologists. Issuance enjoying high demand products mastered Navoi mining and smelting plant and Uzbek-Russian joint venture "ingichki Metals." Concentrate made from the technological waste- and storage of non-ore mine on technology created by NMMP and the Russian company integra Mining ", the main founders JV The result, composed of JV from the Russian side Antona Kantselya, has been made possible thanks to the hard work of industrial, "ingichki Metals and work closely with the City of barrow Katta.

Anton Alekseevich, a few words about the state of the world market for tungsten. -There are 2.9 million tons of total proven reserves of tungsten in the world, according to the Geological Services. In 2004, it produced 62.7 tons. The most abundant China possesses alias is the world's largest producer (in 2004 there were 53,000 tons) and exporter of tungsten concentrate and tungsten - good product. The second largest mining belongs Russia (3,5 thousand tons in 2004). USA with the world's third largest reserves of tungsten concentrate is not produced since 1994, depends entirely on China and Russia. We can add that in the recent years has grown substantially the price of tungsten products. For example, the average price of stocks from 2003 to 2005 grew nearly five times from 7000 to 35000 long break per ton.

- How did we get the idea to produce tungsten concentrate in Uzbekistan? - JV "ingichki Metals" was established in December last year with the active support of the leadership and the industrial district of Samarkand region with the aim of processing technology technological waste mining-metallurgical products, tips mines taillings depositories narrow-enrichment factories. Ingichkinsk enrichment factory, where more than 30 years of mining and processing tungsten ore deposits Ingichki an enormous backlog of waste has become the first object in the list. Local tailing depository is a huge man oilfield containing about 10,000 tons sheelit - basic mineral-media tungsten.

Man-waste (tailings) are fine sand saturated with chemical reagents, partition off dams. These are sources of sand dust and soil. The total number is about 12 million tons. The problem recycling tried to come at different times of a few enterprises, but the result was the same : draft confessed deeply unprofitable. Fortunately, the founders parents JV managed to find the processing of these tailings, which allows profitable convert polluting waste and receive 1-1,5 thousands of tons per year of tungsten material valued at over 6-8 years. This will create about 120 jobs in region.

Without innovative ideas did not come and the conversion of non tungsten ore. This allowed for the processing of lot high-quality, super pure tungsten concentrate containing sheelit (tungsten mineral) for about 78-83%, while the quality of similar products in the world market did not rise above 65%.

Given the increased global demand for tungsten products, it could be assumed that the lack of buyers couldn’t they?

true to the Uzbek ultra clean concentrate shown great interest require consumers from Russia, Canada, Japan. Initially, the founders thought JV plans to export products available in the form of concentrate or making it more profound transformation. However, the original plans have changed partners. The Director-General NMMP Nikolai Kuchersky took the initiative to abandon exports and sell its products in the domestic market "Uzbek national currency. Founders of joint venture unanimously supported the proposal and agreed to supply produced tungsten material

UzCHTRM venture Uzbekistan currently experiencing difficulties in securing raw materials. Between organizations have already signed supply of concentrate generated from the JV ore processing. Partners confident that the Bank behind the groundwork for long-term, strategic, beneficial cooperation in all respects.

After completion of large trials, rearming and training facilities to a full-time production again

will start in November this year. Thanks to substandard processing ore joint venture will concentrate UzCHTRM until March 2007, supplying about 30-40 tons per month, only 150-200 tones. Further work on tungsten concentrate "Ingichki metals" are planned in such a way as to continue uninterrupted supply plant crucial raw materials.

Plans for the future.

In the future, the joint venture ingichki metals, in addition to production sheelitov concentrate, but plans involve processing technological fields other metals, using a new and unique technology.
