Peat Moss Deposits
"Ozeretsko-Pesochnoe" peat moss depositIn 1979 detailed exploring has been lead on the deposit. The area is 10 thousands hectares. Peat moss tract consists of isolated from each other oligotrophic lots, bordered by rivers and adjacent eutrophic areas. Max capacity of the peatlands is 7m (average 2,8m), ash percentage - 6,3%, degree of decomposition - 20%, natural humidity - 90,5%. 21,1 million tons under A category were discovered during detailed exploring of south part of the deposit. About 40% - peat with low degree of decomposition and with ash level up to 10%. This high-quality raw product is suitable for producing of insulating materials and mulch materials, and also for producing of chemical products. Other resources can be used as household and power-plant fuel, as sorbent in struggle against pollution of waters and surfaces of the ground by mineral oil, and as fertilizes in agriculture.
In a south-east part of the deposit, the site by the area of 295 hectares is licensed. Resources of the peat moss within the limits of the site make 315 thousand tons. The deposit is developed since 1990. The annual level of extraction makes no more than 50 thousand tons. During work as the enterprise, it has been extracted 95 thousand tons of raw material.
Listvennichnoe deposit of peat moss ("Lugovskoj" and "Novotroitskiy" areas)The deposit is located in 3 km to the south-west of settlement Listvennichnoe, between two rivers Susuya and Srednyaja, in southern part of Susuya lowlands. In 1977 detailed exploring has been lead on the deposit. The area is 1333 hectares. Average deposit capacity is 3,51m, ash level - 10%, degree of decomposition up to 22%, natural humidity - 90%. Balance resources of the deposit (categories A+B) make 3408 thousand tons, off-balance - 1276 thousand tons. The deposit is developed since 1972.
Site Lugovskoj of 362 hectares is located by the area in the northern-western part of the deposit. Balance recourses of the area make 3148 thousand tons. Annual level of extraction of raw material is 100 thousand tons. The extracted mineral raw material is used for preparation of organic fertilizer.
Site Novotroitsky of 20 hectare is located by the area in northern-east part moss of the deposit. Balance recourses of the area make 260 thousand tons. Annual level of extraction of raw material is 15-20 thousand tons. The extracted mineral raw material is used for preparation of organic fertilizer.
