Eastern Research Mining and Metallurgical Institute of Nonferrous Metals



VNIItsvetmet of RSE NC CPMRM RK complexly engaged in solving of problems of mining, dressing metallurgical processing of polymetallic and gold-bearing ores with deriving of non-ferrous and precious metals for 60 years.


The institute specializes on implementation:

  • vniiWorks and services in mining, including creation of new technologies and perfection of existing technologies of processing of ore deposits; analysis of physical-and-mechanical, technological and structural properties of stones and ores; geomechanical foundation of technological parameters of development of ore deposits; investigation and development of optimal methods of ore-preparation and control systems of quality of ores; development and adoption of technologies of packing of voids with using of waste of mining-metallurgical complex; development of new explosives and perfection of technology drilling-blasting operations on their basis; creation and introduction of effective schemes of conditioning, methods and facilities of dedusting of air on underground mines; mechanization of underground mining operations; development of program complexes and information technology for creation of geological databases, control of mass condition, technological processes and appliances.
  • Works and services in dressing, including development of new technologies and perfection of existing technologies of dressing of polymetallic ores with complex deriving of all useful components; synthesis of high-performance flotation reagents; creation of combined gravitation-and-flotation processes of dressing of ores and dressing-and-metallurgical schemes of processing difficult for concentration ores; development of effective technologies of deriving of gold and silver from polymetallic ores and anthropogenic raw materials.
  • Works and services in metallurgy, including perfection and introduction of autogenous processes for processing of various raw materials containing non-ferrous and precious metals; development of new ways of deriving of precious components from industrial products and wastes of metallurgical production; creation new hydrometallurgical processes and perfection of existing hydrometallurgical processes for production of non-ferrous and precious metals; system development of effective dust suppression, gas cleaning; application of computer technologies for solving of metallurgical problems and forecasting activity of development of production of nonferrous metals.
