New dump cars to operate in gold and copper mine
The Russian freight car manufacturer United Wagon Company (UWC) will supply the mining company Polymetal with 55 dump cars by the end of H1/2020. The batch of cars will be delivered to the Varvara plant for operation in Kazakhstan.
Varvara, Polymetal's first operation in Kazakhstan, is a gold and copper mine with a modern 4.2 Mtpa processing plant. An excellent transportation infrastructure and inexpensive energy make it a perfect fit for becoming a regional processing hub. Varvara includes an open-pit gold mine and the Komarovskoye gold deposit.
The UWC-produced dump cars are designed for transporting and automatically unloading overburden and hard rock.
