• In 1984 –1988, prospect evaluation study was conducted in the deposit. Overall volume of underground mines was 1,340 running meters. Based on this data, appraisal of reserves by C2 category to the depth of 280 m and forecast resources by P1 category to the depth of 450 m was issued

• Reliability of geological study was proven by the works in 1993 –1995. Laboratory technological test of the ore was made on four samples taken at different depths

• Following works were performed in 2014: environment audit, prospecting traverse, geoelectrical works, geomagnetic works, mine footage, appraisal drilling, GIS

• In 2015 appraisal drilling of 6,700 l.m (40 wells), in 2014 – 834 l.m (4 wells) was conducted; drill site and roads of total 11,300 m3 is constructed
