Residents in the Talnakh
district of Norilsk have been stunned by the sight of a polar bear prowling for food from its usual habitat.
Second Phase of New Strategy: NN completed the first phase of its operational upgrade programme with the shutdown of an old nickel plant in Norilsk and expansion and upgrade of its Talnakh
concentrator and Nadezhda nickel smelting plant.
Nickel output was down 16% YoY to 53.5kt, with production from own feedstock 5% YoY lower at 49.4kt, as the Talnakh
concentrator slowly ramps up, additionally negatively affected by depleting pyrrhotite concentrate feedstock at the Polar division.
Well-known occurrences of relatively large crystals are Oruro and Animas in Bolivia, Huanzala in Peru and Talnakh
in Russia (Bernard and Hyrsl, 2015).
One of the most exciting specimens on display at the 1986 Munich Show was a sperrylite from the Talnakh
orefield, Norilsk region.
The Finnish engineering and technology group Metso Corporation (OMX Helsinki:MEO1V) said on Monday (15 December) that it will supply grinding equipment to Open Joint Stock Company (OJSC) 'Mining and Metallurgical Company Norilsk Nickel' (MMC Norilsk Nickel) for its subsidiary Talnakh
Concentrator in Northern Russia.
This region has been intensively explored as the world's most important reserves of platinum, nickel, cobalt and palladium are found here in the mines of Noril'sk and Talnakh
. The outcrop has a surface area of four or five times the size of the Iberian Peninsula but as these volcanic rocks are only partially exposed, being covered in a large part by the Triassic and Jurassic, it is highly probable that the extension is greater.
People do not always equate Sudbury with the platinum and palladium deposits, but the Sudbury camp is the third-largest producer in the world behind the Bushveld Complex in Africa and Talnakh
A new mine, Skalisty, is being brought on stream to compensate partially for lost capacity through depletion in the Talnakh
Certainly, industrial centers like Norilsk, Talnakh
, and Dudinka in Taymyr have not devastated the entire peninsula--far from it, but the poisonous emissions from their metallurgical complexes can be detected far from Taymyr, and the same is true of the industrial complexes in northern Yakuty and those in the Kola Peninsula.
