Borov Dol is a modern mine for surface exploitation of copper ore, the successor of the 40- year-old Bucim mine, which enables the continuation of copper ore mining, the operation of production units in Bucim, the preservation of jobs and the creation of new job opportunities for the residents of the local municipalities Konche, Shtip and Radovish.
It started production in 2021 and annually mines over 4,500,000 tons of copper ore, which contains copper and gold. With 300 direct employees, it is one of the largest local employers that contributes to the sustainable economic and social development of the region.
Borov Dol contains prospective reserves of about 62 million tons of ore with 0.25% copper and 0.19 g/t gold.
Copper ore exploitation activities are carried out in the Borov Dol mine. To minimize environmental impact, it uses Bucim's existing ore processing and storage facilities, and the crushed ore is transported via a 7 km long covered conveyor belt.
Боров Дол е современ рудник за површинска експлоатација на бакарна руда, наследник на 40-годишниот рудник Бучим, со кој што се овозможува продолжување на ископ на бакарна руда, оперативност на производствените единици во Бучим, зачувување на работните места и создавање на нови можности за работа за жителите на локалните општини Конче, Штип и Радовиш.
Со производство отпочна во 2021година и годишно ископува над 4 500 000 тони бакарна руда, која содржи бакар и злато. Со 330 директно вработени е еден од најголемите работодавеци во регионот кој придонесува за одржливиот економски и социјален развој на регионот.
Боров Дол содржи докажани и проспективни резерви од околу 40 милиони тони руда со 0,26% бакар и 0,20 г/т злато.
Во рудникот Боров Дол се изведуваат активности за експлоатација на бакарна руда. За да се минимизира влијанието врз животната средина, ги користи веќе постоечките капацитети на Бучим за преработка и складирање на руда, а издробената руда се транспортира преку покриена транспортна трака долга 7 км.
History is the witness of time.
The first geological observations and researches of the Borov Dol ore deposit, carried out in
1955, were the starting point for the further long-term extensive and complex geological research that took place continuously for 35 years (1965-1999). In 2011, based on the knowledge from the previous explorations of the Borov Dol ore deposit, Solway Investment Group started carrying out detailed geological surveys, which proved that the Borov Dol site is a copper ore deposit, which will undoubtedly allow the extension of the working life of Bucim mine at least until 2030.
