Arktur Ltd. is the company engaged with the development of Karavan Deposit and Cheremushne Deposit and the production of quartz and building sands occurring in these deposits. The main consumers of quartz sands include traditionally businesses of the glass industry, as well as those of the chemical, building materials industries that employ these sands in the production of various refractories, ceramics, epoxy resins, and compounds. Businesses manufacturing reinforced concrete products, brick, plasters, etc. are among the main consumers of building sands.

Our Company exploits Karavan and Cheremushne Quartz Sand Deposits located in Kharkiv Oblast, Ukraine. As far as the chemical and grading properties of the sands occurring in these deposits are concerned, they have no analogs not only in Ukraine but also in Europe. As similar sands, those occurring in Novoselivka Deposit (Nova Vodolaga, Kharkiv Oblast, Ukraine) can be mentioned.

Expected production capacities of these deposits can be within 600000-1000000 MT per year. The deposits are exploited by open-cast mining.

The development of Karavan Deposit has been carried out from April 2003. Because of a skillful management of the Company, there are employed professional specialists of various levels, professional drivers, excavator operators, and tractor operators. In the development of the deposit, advanced techniques of open-cast mining are employed including the introduction of new production processes.

Paralleled with the development of Karavan Deposit is the preparation of Investment Projects of developing Cheremushne Deposit, which is one of the largest quartz sand deposits in Ukraine and Europe.

Our Company already supplies building sand to various consumers including Nova Vodolaga Concrete Product Plant.
By now, preliminary negotiations of quartz sand supplies have been held with Poltava Medical Glass Factory, Gostomel Glass Container Plant, Float-Glass Plant under construction in Klin, Moscow Oblast, Russia (the construction is performed by Glaverbell - Austria).
