Russia starts developing the largest deposit of titanium and quartz raw materials


Realizing the critical dependence on our titanium, the West at the last moment refused to impose sanctions against the Russian corporation VSMPO-Avisma. The Ural company supplied titanium products and blanks to more than 450 companies around the world. Among them are such giants as Boeing, Rolls-Royce and Airbus, which, by the way, lobbied for the removal of "titanium" restrictions from Russia.


At first glance, it might seem that everything worked out for the best. However, there is a nuance.

The thing is that the VSMPO-Avisma corporation itself is almost completely dependent on foreign raw materials. Moreover, the main supplier of ilmenite concentrate until recently was Ukraine.

It should be noted that the purchase of raw materials from our “western neighbor” was not carried out out of “hopelessness”. We have our own large deposits. Here Russia is second only to China. It's just that the scheme of deliveries from Ukraine, debugged back in Soviet times, was more profitable than our own production.

After the complete cessation of trade with Ukraine, Russia began to purchase the raw materials necessary for the production of titanium in Africa and Vietnam. However, this option involves a number of logistical difficulties, which prompted our country to start developing the largest in Russia and the world in terms of reserves of titanium and quartz raw materials, the Pizhemskoye deposit located in the Komi Republic.

In addition to the aforementioned main resources, associated minerals such as zircon, iron, basalts, gold, diamonds and rare earth metals will also be mined here.

In general, the reserves of the Pizhma deposit will last for 500 years of continuous production. Thus, in the near future, our country will be able to completely get rid of the above-mentioned dependence on raw materials.

During the implementation of the project in the Republic of Komi, it is planned to build an entire mining cluster and the Sosnogorsk-Indiga railway with a length of 559 km along Komi and the Nenets Autonomous Okrug.

      Stalin is not. The entire Russian economy, since the time of the Domaevs, is based on non-economic coercion, that is, figuratively speaking, on a whip, a stick and a "wall". If these three magical stimuli are not present, decline and ruin ensue.

      In fact, the annals say "there is no outfit in it." There is no control.
      It was about Novgorod, where the current management was carried out by veche and posadniks. The prince was invited to resolve a limited range of issues, primarily military ones. If the prince was no longer satisfied, they said:

      And the path to the prince is clear

      In order not to use Russian expressions, such as "Fuck you, prince, to ... to ..."
      Such situations were in other principalities.

      Showing the way to Volodimer Svyatoslavich ... and sending the prince to Vsevolod

      "Showing the way" - in this case, they told the prince that he could go wherever he wanted. Democracy.
      In the same way, the prince himself could leave for a variety of reasons.
      That is, in Novgorod, for some reason, there was temporarily no prince. The situation is quite ordinary.
      Someone in the 19th century decided to translate "there is no order", and then there were enough Russophobes. The version was carefully planted and it took root.
      In the same way, Gorbachev added to the distortion of the Russian language in the late 1980s.
      "In this regard...". There is no such ugliness in the Russian language. But then it was fashionable to parrot for Tagged. Some professor of philology even spoke on TV. He said that only "in connection with this ..." is correct. Useless. Now even Putin says so. It sank indestructibly.

        in the annals it says "there is no outfit in it"

        Moreover - in some lists it is said "the orderly is not in it" ..

    Yes, only I am the author of this information, and how can I prove it now? I wrote to all institutions about Titanium and gold, about projects in which we will introduce minerals!

    Why rejoice? If it is the property of a capitalist, and the owner lives over the hill.

    Well, it’s clear, if our hucksters are in a partnership with the West (we have a war with the West, and the hucksters have friendship, froindchaft for centuries) dig, then now titanium for armor and quartz will flow like a river! To whom is war, and to whom is mother dear, as they say, it’s just business and nothing personal, but in my opinion, betrayal and the supply of materials for military equipment to the enemy that kills our defenders!

    All of course interesting and joyful. Here's just this particular topic: Starting to develop - it comes up every six months in the press. And we all start and start.

    The railway to Indiga is very important. But in the Ministry of Finance, many projects are being blocked.
