River Mashavera
River Mashavera is produced by result of joint of River Sarfdere and river Naziklich. This rivers
inflow from eastern slope of mountain Emlikli (3053.6m). Mountain is located on the hill called
Sveli Mtebi (Kechuti), down the village Pantiani by 0.2km, at the height of 1358m.

River Mashavera inflow to river Qtsia-Hram from right bank from its mouth on the 41 km, 35 km
south to village Arukhlo, at the height of 390m from sea level.
Length of the river is 66km, total fall 968m, average inclination-14,7%, catchment basin area-
1390km2, average height- 1240m. Privileged

Rvers main tributaries: River Safrdere (length-19km), Nazikklich( 12m),Kamarlo (18km), Mamutli
(21km) Karakliska (13km), Moshevani (25km), Ukangori (13km), Kheta (22km), Bolnisi (same
Poladauri) (42km) and Talaverchai (17km). All tributaries inflow into river Mashavera in the

mountainous part of catchment basin till village Qvesha. In the rivers lower part during the
distance of 27km it hasn’t any large tributary except river Bolnisi ( same Poladauri).

Width of river, changes from 2m (near village Bolnisi), to 20m (at village Javakhi), primary- 12m.

Depth of the river is 0.4-0.6m (in rapid current areas) and 0.8-1.2m in deep places, primary -0.8m.

Water flow rates are respectively: 1.5-2m/sec, 0.6-0.9m/sec, primary -1.2m/sec.

Study of rivers water regime has been started from 1927 year.

River Mashavera is characterized by spring inundation and unstable shallow In the rest of the time
of year. Spring inundation level starts to increase from the beginning of April, while in the lower
part- in the middle of the March. Inundation reaches its maximum in the middle of the May.
Intensive use of water due to irrigation necessity causes decrease of water level.

Dangerous hydrological phenomenas do not meet on the river. River is fed by snow, rain and
ground water. By result of this water level starts to fall. Maximum registered flow rate has been
108m³/sec (19.05.1959), while minimum - 0.65 m³/sec(Village Didi Dmanisi 16.03.1945). Annual
flow is shared unequal: in spring compiles 40.0% of annual flow, in summer – 30.8%, in winter –
12.4%. Main Hydrological parameters of river Mashavera are shown in the table:

   • Rhyolites,
   • Turquoise
   • Quartzitesed tuff;
   • Ignimbrites,
   • Rhyolites are presented by acid tuffogenic rocks:

Liparite porphyry-tuffes and tuff-breccias, tuffs are used in ceramical Company. Total reserve in
nature and dumps is 3 million tons.

Turquoise is mined in Madneuli deposit copper ore contacts. Containing rocks – secondary
quartzites, chlorite-sericite-quartz metasomathites. Turquoise of Madneuli stands out with its high
density and true different tonality of blue color.

Quartzitised tuffs are mined almost in every section of the pit. Total reserve (bowels+dumps) is
several houndred million tones. By conducted industrial tests has been ascertained possibility of
using it as active composite of cement.

                               Treatment and enrichment of the ore
Ore received from the pit is transfered to enrichmnet plants coarse crushing workshop, where it is
crushed. After that ore moves to middle and fine crushing workshop and then to mills, where it is

Enrichment plant JSC Madneuli is operating since 1975. It has been mining Copper, barit, gold-
silver containing quartsite and polymetallic ores, after that primary treatment of copper and barit
from them, enrichment and selling of received product- copper concentrate. At present Company
treats only copper ore., which amount in 2007 year reached-1980 thousand tons.

Used raw materials: Copper pyrites ore.
Chemical composition of raw materials:
Copper– 0,92%
Sulphure – 3-4%
Silicon oxide – 67,2%
Aluminium oxide – 1,5-2%
Iron – 2,8%
Flow rate of raw materials on products unit – 22 t/t.

Company consists of open-pit and enrichment plant, from nearest settlement –Kazreti county are on
the distance of 2,7 and 1,7km respectively. Mining of copper ore is conducted by methods of
drilling-blasting. Drilling of bore-holes in diameter 190mm is carryed out by drilling rigs of the
brands “Tamrock” D25KC, “Tamrock” D40KC, “Tamrock” D45KC                     and “Ingersollani” T4.
Blasting of dilluted bore-holes is carryed out by       explosive _ “Geonit-750”, while in dry bore-
holesis used local produced explosive Igdanit (AN-FO). Explosive “Powerjele-magnum” is used
as booster. Initiation of charges is carryed out by “Noneli” system non-electrical detonators. Mined
ore from the pit with excavators is loaded into heavy weight tracks ( Belaz), after that ore is
transported to the enrichment plant, where it is gathered at ore receiving site, while idle rocks are
hauled to special dumps.There by loaders (one of existing dumps is conserved) is formed dumps.

Technological process of enrichment plant is combined of collecting of the raw materials on
receiving site, coarse, middle and fine crushing, ore grinding, flotation, thickening, precipitation,

filtration, drying, concentrate extraction and packing, loading of prepared production and

Collected ore On the receiving site of the ore by means of transport is transfered to crushing
workshop, where coarse, middle and fine crushing of the ore is carried out. Then crushed ore is
transfered to the mills for grinding, where with metal balls ore is wet grinded till 5 microne.

Grinded ore moves to flotation units, where by means of technologically foreseen reagents is
carried out flotation process and derivation of copper concentrate.

During flotation are used following chemical reagents:
   -   Xanthate – 32 gr/1 t ore,
   -   Foaming oil T-80 – 50 g/1 t ore.

Technologicaly foreseen alkali environment is reached by addition of lime milk, which is produced
in lime workshop (lime – 8,22 kg/1 t ore).

Derived concentrate moves to plants filtration-drying workshop and after drying finished product is
received –copper concentrate.

Filtrated concentrate by special filters is provided to the hopper, where it is packed and loaded in to
railway vagons for further transportation. In Company formated liquid waste is pomped to tailing
dumps by pipeline.

                           PROTECTION OF WATER RESOURCES
                                  WATER SUPPLY SYSTEM
Water on Company is used in industrial and drinking-agriculture purposes. Due to technological
norms for treatment of 1t of ore is necessary 0.3m³of drinking water and 4.5m³ industrial water.

Taking water for drinking-agriculture and partially industrial purposes happens from Bolnisi water-
pipe. For industrial water supply is used pit water.

According to government statistics account form #04-1-01 in 2007 year from Bolnisi water-pipe
totally was taken:

– Drinking water – 1676,372 thousand cubic meters (hence for drinking agriculture purposes is
used 203,106 thousand cubic meters, for industrial purposes - 1473,266 thousand cubic meters,
water flow rate in recycling water system is -904,65thousand cubic meters, while in circulating
water supply system - 8900,0thousand cubic meters. In Companys dozen oint points are mounted
watermeters, according to their readings is implemented water primary calculation.

Filling of circulating water supply leakage is done by pit acid water.

Mentioned water is supplied to enrichment plant from prepared N@#2 dump existing dam basin,
where pit discharged acid water is collected. Water supply is done by following diagram:
neutralization chamber → tailing dump → enrichment plant, average 100m3/h.

In enrichment plant pit acid water is collected in 5000m3 capacity thickener, which plays flow rate
regulating capacity   role. After passing conformable units copper is extracted from water and
solutions are neutralized. At the end water together with pulp is pumped into tailings, where
remained metals are precipitated.     From tailings water is recycled to enrichment plant and is
involved in the closed technological circuit.

Mentioned technological cycle provide for whole recirculation of industrial water, that prevents
discharge of industrial water into environment.

Agriculture – domestic waste water according to government statistical account form-
182.8thousand m3/y.) is involved in Kazreti county drainage system.


In 2007 JSC Madneuli was worked out together with wastre water threshold norms of hazardous
substances discharge surface water object.

Mentioned norms are determined as maximal mass of contamination substances into waste water.In
the range of threshold norms of discharge of harmful substances doesn’t damage environment,
provide water object with ecological safety and gives opportunity to use water objects in proper

Treshold norms are calculated specifically for harmful substances that developed during Company
object operating and which discharge into water object influence or may exposure negatively on
water object.

Treshold discharge norms are determined by foreseeing that        threshold norm of concentration
must not exceed after dicharge of waste water in influent chamber to avoid its contamination.

Calcuating of threshold norms are performed on the basis of existing regulation acts by using
proper technical documentation.

In this case calculation is made by computer software «TDN-Ecolog", which is developed by firm
“Integral” (Sanct- Peterburg)and is intended for water quality monitoring and control realization of
surface water objects.


Pollution diffusive sources:
   1. Little part ofEdischarge and seepage water of dumps No 1 and 2 is leaking from existing
         holding dam and inflows into river Kazretula.
   2. Discharge and seepage from idle rock dumps No3 and No 4, that are located east to open-
         pit – inflows into river Poladauri.

Must be mentioned that at present Nno3 and No4 dumps are not used by Company, actualy
contamination is caused by collected idle rock corrosion during dozen of years and presents
“Historical contamination”

              #3 Flow of discharge water from the dump (historical contamination)
Coducted assays by independent laboratory shows that concentration of          heavy metals in river
water under the dumps changes insignificantly:

Ingredients                      Concentration in river water   Concentration in river water

   3. Diffusive discharge of seepages from some areas of enrichment plant.
   4. Its necessary to take proper measures to avoid river contamination (See. Main measures).

   Contamination point sources:

   1. Drained water from tailing dump inflows under the joint point of river Kazretula and river
     As it was determined during field works maximal hourly rate of water is -250m³/h.

                        Drained and seepage waters from tailing dump

According to the data received from laboratory assays in April-may of 2008 year, drained water
content is following:
   Copper – 0,1 – 2,5 mg/l
   Zinc – 0,04 – 2,2 mg/l
   Iron –   0,05 – 1,8 mg/l

                                 Other sources of contamination:

During extreme situations (heavy rains) its possible that part of collected water near dump on the
river Kazretula may pass into river.     To avoid such situations near enrichment plant is foreseen
arangement of adjustment capacity. Where additional water will be collected and recycled into
technological cycle, while in case of plenty water, afetr treatment with lime discharge into river
Kazretula. Maximal amount of this water is approximately -300m3/h.

                               CALCULATION OF T.D.N. NORMS

Threshold dipping norms (T.d.n.) of dipping pollutant substances, together with waste water are
based upon enterprise specificity and are calculated for heavy metals (Copper, Zinc, Iron, Cadmium
da Sulphates).
       T.d.n. is established for two organazed (pointty) dippings :
    1. Dipping of drain water in the river Mashavera
    2. During extreme cases, periodical dipping of acumulated water (after special treatment) in
        regulating reservoir near concentrating mill.

As for diffusional sources of pollution, after carrying out respectively arrangments, prevention of
seepage and leakage in river Kazretula must be achieved.

                                       Dipping of drain water
Following initial data is input in software „Ecologist“ for definition of waste water acceptable
dipping norms.

(The most disadvantageous Hydrological conditions are taken)

   -   River Mashavera depth – 0,6 m
   -   River Mashavera speed – 0,9 m
   -   River Mashavera minimal expense of many – 1,64 m3/sc.
   -   drain water expense – 0,069 m3/wm.

                 -    Because dipping will happen after Joining of river Kazretula, influence of river Kazretula is
                      taken into account for calculation and also expense of river Kazretula 0,3 m3/sc is input.
                 -    Background concentrations of river mashavera water (are defined during field work, Assays
                      are carried out in two independent labboratories and avarage indexes are received.):
                                            Copper – 0,02 mg/l
                                            Zinc – 0,024 mg/l
                                            Iron – 0,27 mg/l
                                            Cadmium <0,001 mg/l

              Background concentration of sulphates are hesitating in important limits (18 _ 50). According to
              that, average concentration - 30 mg/l is taken into account for calculation

As mentioned above collected water in adjustment capacity is periodically discharged and their
presumable maximal rate is -300m3/h.

Foreseeing that threshold concentrations of contaminat substances in river water is exceeded,
Treshold of discharge is determined for agriculture –economical category rivers on the level of
threshold concentration and to achieve this level are planed necessary measures. (see. Chapter
“Plan for necessary measurements for protection of threshold discharge norms”).

                              Protection of atmospheric air
Perspective of Company development, place physical-geographical conditions, parameters of
emission of harmful substances in to atmospheric air and foreseeing emission calculation, each
source of contamination and for each harmful substance are determined threshold norms of
emission, that is indivisible part of limit of harmful substances emission in to atmospheric air and
basis of its development and approvemnet.

Description of hazardous substances emission into atmospheric air and contamination sources
By result of Companys main activity in atmospheric air is released dust, carbonic acid, nitrogen
oxides, sulphur dioxide, soot, hydrocarbon, sulphuretted hydrogen, carbon (as gas with thermo
effect). During electric arc welding operation iron and magnesium oxides and aerial fluorides.

Above mentioned substances (except carbon) has ability of harmful influence on environment.

Carbon is not a harmful substance, but is considered as gas with thermo effect.

Carbonic acid – with its toxicity to concern to 4 class. Strongly dangerous poisoning, as has not
smell and color. Is formed by result of incomplete burning of inorganic substances. First attributes
of a poisoning : headache and dizziness, after that loosing conscious. Poisoning by carbon is favourable
also because of blood hemoglobin 200 times greedily absorb carbon then oxygen. Lack of oxygen in blood –
hypoxemia, or oxygen absence- anoxemia.

Nitrogen oxides – from nitrogen oxides most harmful is nitrogen oxide, but in the atmospheric
air its rapidly oxidised to nitrogen dioxide. That’s why in Company source of poisoning by
nitrogen oxides is considered nitrogen dioxide. First attributes of a poisoning : coughing, weakness,
headache. After that swelling of lungs and leakage of oxygen.Then heart pain. By its toxicity
nitrogen dioxide concern to 2 class. In calculations are considered nitrogen oand nitrogen dioxides
excrete in differential amount according to received practice.

Sulphure dioxide - Even in small quantity causes unpleasant taste in a mouth, irritates salivary
glands. Even 0,2% of sulphure dioxide in organizm causes wheeze, loss of breathing, inflammation
of raspiratory organs, constipation. By toxicity concerns 3-class.

Soot - By toxicity concerns to 3 class. It is considered cancerogenic substance

Hydrocarbons-      Substance of narcotic action. Highest alkanes except narcotic action has ability to
cause convulsions. Polycyclic Hydrocarbons causes irritation of mucuos tunic, effects blood, blood
formating organs, poisoning danger is caused by its evaporability, Therefore they belong to such
class of substances, that are called « voa » volatile organic admixture.

Parameters of emission of harmful substances into atmospheric air
As it was mentioned in introduction part threshold of emission of harmful substances into
atmospheric air is determined for conditions of probable maximal capacity of load of Company.
Parameters of emission of harmful substances into atmospheric air was determined on the basis of
inventory materials of Company (atmospheric air contaminating sources and emission by them of
harmful substances inventory technical report). For this pourpose was used general data provided
by namufacture about activity of object and existing different bibliography and calculation methods.
Calculation was carryed out using calculation methods.

For more obviousness and in purpose of facilitation of analysis, was composed 9.1. Table, where
is given emission parameters of harmful substances, which are necessary for calculation of emission
of harmful substances.

       Method of Calculation of emission of harmful substances into atmospheric air

 Terms of determination of threshold emission of harmful substances into atmospheric air

For determining threshold norm of emission must be used following terms:
                                                   ≤ 1,            (1)

         Cm _ Calculated Fmaximal concentration of harmful substances in Overground layer of
atmosphere (mg/m3) from all contaminating sources;

         zdk. m _ Corresponding harmful substances maximal single threshold concentration,
      In case of existance of several simultaneously total influence on atmospheric air must be
used following terms:
                       C m.1   C m .2           C m .n
                             +         + ... +          ≤ 1,                    (2)

      Cm.1, Cm.2...Cm.n _ Calculated maximal concentration of harmful substances at the same
place of oevrground layed of atmosphere, mg/m3;
      zdk.   m1,   zdk.   m2...   zdk.   m.n   _ Relevant maximal single threshold concentration of
harmful substances, mg/m3.
      In formulas (1 – 2) the 1 in right part must be replaced by 0,8For health-resort zones,
sanatoriums and resting house locations, althouth for other territories With requirement of a
quality atmospheric air for harmful substances which maximal single threshold concentration

absence- approximate safety level influence of harmful substances.
      In case of existence of background concentration in atmospheric air (Cf) in formula(1)-
instead of Cm must be taken Cm+ Cf , while in (2)formula instead of Cm.1, Cm.2...Cm.n – must be
used Cm.1 +Cf.1, Cm.2 +Cf.2...Cm.n +Cf.n .
      Operating and reconstructable Companys during determination of treshold emission
instead of Cf –is used C 'f ,which is background concentration, where Company share is
                              C 'f = Cf (1-0.4         ), When Cm ≤ 2Cf                  (3)
                                   C 'f= 0.2Cf , When Cm >2Cf                      (4)

         For Companys under consrtuction for defining of threshold emission norms

                                  C 'f= 0.2Cf                                            (5)

         Values of background concentration is defined by hydrometeorological office on the
basis of data of regular surveys on atmosphere contamination posts.In case of absence of this
data background concentration terms are calculated on the basis of emission iventory parameters
by following formula:

                        ⎡                   ⎤
                        ⎢                   ⎥
                 C 'f = ⎢1 −                ⎥ ⋅ zdk,                               (6)

       - Company general location plan;
       - Company location región climate and phisical- geographical indicies.;
       - Parameters of emission of harmful subtances into atmospheric air from Company;
       - Threshold norms of concentration of harmful substances in atmospheric air for

Calculation of emission of harmful substances into atmospheric air is carryed out for different
parameters of emission of harmful substances. After selection from conditions unfavourable and
for such case is calculated probable maximal concentration of harmful substances in to
atmospheric air. During computer calculating it is determined in specially selected points and,
altghough calculation grid. As calculation grid is considered square shape area in lenght 7000m,
width 7000m, steps 1000m.

Calculations results of emission of harmful substances into atmospheric air is presented
inappendix -2 printed report and includes:
       -      Parameters of harmful substances emission source;
       -      Company location region typical climate and weather parameters, different
              calculation rates of wind;
       -      Total emissions of harmful substances from sources;
       -      Maximal concentrations of harmful substances for caclulation net each x and y

       -     Maximal concentration points of harmful substances for summer and winter seasons;
       -     Maps of emission of harmful substances.

Report of emission of harmful substances showed that maximal concentration value calculated
for harmful substances in survey square (7000 X 7000m, steps 1000m). And in control point
(X=-700; Y=850m secondary school of Kazreti County) is not above threshold concentration
norms, thats why receieved values of of emission of harmful substances can be considered as
threshold emission norms.      Defining quality of atmospheric air main harmful substances are
dust and nitrogen dioxide. Portion of other harmful substances in formation of quality of
atmospheric air is more less. Calculation of emission has been carryed ou considering harmful
substances with total influence effect.

From analysis of graphical material can be seen that formed concentration maximum is not
above settled norms in settlement, therefore actual values of emission can be considered as
threshold emission norms.

In addition, has to be noted, that despite of concentration norms is not        exaggerated in
settlementmeasures to ecrease dust emission in stationary organized sources(enrichment plant)is
necessary to reach   design performance of cleaning equipment (scrubber).That in existing
conditions are 62, 40, 71 and 85%- accordingly for first, second, third and forth emission
sources, which design cleaning quality (≥ 95%) realization provides of aspirated air maximal
localization and in working area decrease of dust concentration to threshold norm. After

realization of aspiration system design according to the law is foreseen technical passport for
each unit and control of their performace effectiveness by tools and recording actual data in the

For unorganized sources (mainly fleet)in summer hot and dry weather is recommended to water
occasionally main roads of transportation that decreases to minimum dusting from this type of
sources. Frequency of watering must be decided experimentally.

Bon the basis of above mentioned, first of all is necessary to develop restore-rehabilitation
projects (until end of the 2008) for all aspiration system and dust-collecting equipments of
enrichment plant coarse (emission source No2), medium and fine (emission source No3),
although lime workshops (emission source No1) and main building (emission source No4). After
developing of this project they must be practiced in 2009-2010. After implementation of this
projects dust-collecting equipments will collect 95% of dust and dust emission in the year will
decrease: in ore coarse crushing workshop by 25809t, in ore medium and fine crushing
workshopby 11905t, in lime workshop by 5322t, in main building by 3390t, i.e. totally by 46426

Main mass of waste in JSC Madneuli is presented by technological waste, particularly:
       - Idle rocks, which are mined during pit processing for the ore,
       - Liquid waste (tailings), which are produced during ore processing on enrichment plant.
       Idle rocks are located on the 4 dumps near pit, while liquid waste by pumps are moved to
Tailing dump, which is complex hydrotechnical construction and is located 2,5km far from
enrichment plant in the `bolis-khevi~ streams valley. Tailing dump data is reviewed below.

                                              Idle Rock
Mined idle rocks from the pit is haulaged by “Belaz” to specially organized dumps.

                 Copper pyrite and barite tailing dumps of JSC “Madneuli”
According to project of St-Petersburg’s Scientific-research and designing institute “Mechanobri”
concentrating technology of the factory foresees ore concentrating, also different types of Barite
including ore must be processed by interchanging on separate sections.

Projects of organization and exploitation of copper- pyrite and barite tailing dumps, were
developed by the same institute for putting in warehouse so called “tails” – waste mass from
concentrating of marked ore, according to which formation and exploitation of them was
processed. Copper- pyrite tailing dump is exploited also nowadays, and barite containing ore
after stoppage of enrichment last 16 years.

Marked tailing dump is under temporary closing and sedimentation in them isn’t processed.
Copper-pyrite tailing dump is located in 2.5 km distance from concentrating mill, in “Bolis-
Khevis” ravine. Absolute marking of adjacent reliefs hesitates between 700-820m and above.

Tailing dam formation of starts from 685-699 m markings of pioneer dam, 3 meter length raw of
separate layers is located above which, formation of which till 745.5 m is fulfilled by 1:4 relative

In total 15 3 m layers are formed in this marked area, approximately 70 m width horizontal
platform is left on 745.5 m marking, from where formation of 16 layers is continued with 1:6
relative inclination, their height hesitates between 3-4 m. formation of 31st layer of 807.5 m
marking is finished for today.

Hydro technical building is formed between 685-807.5m markings at present, which in vertical
height is 122m with 700m inclination, it occupies approximately 70 hectare area and 30 million
tones of concentrating waste mass (tails) is precipitated.

Final designing marking of copper-pyrite tailing is 819-820m and current height will increase
approximately by 12m for exploitation end.

Current tailing dump will provide exploitation of concentrating mill for next 4 years, by foreseen
the fact that tailing dump in current productivity conditions of concentrating mill, increases in
height approximately for 3-3.5.

As for barite tailing dump, which is under temporary closing now, it occupies approximately
16.3 hectare are and 2.9 million tones of “tail’ mass is settled. It is located adjacent to copper-
pyrite tailing dump.

Pioneer dam of 655.0 m marking is formed by 3m layers, 1:4 relative inclinations. Number of
layers is 8, it is foreseen by project to form dam till 723.0m.

By foreseen seismic conditions of region, by planner’s calculated coefficient of hydro technical
buildings stability reserves is established for copper-pyrite tailing dump _ 1.39, and for barite
tailing dump - 1.46, this satisfies requirements of standards for I category hydro technical

Copper-pyrite tailing dump economy building system consists of:

             1. Hydro transport and building of tails precipitation, which consists of
   -   Pumping station established in concentrating mill main building
   -   Two steel main pulp taps (tube size Д 426×10mm) one of them is working other
       reserve line. road length is ≈2.2km
   -   Dam, which is formed between 685-807.5m markings for today
   -   Two distributor pulp tap lines (steel tubes Д 426×10 mm) is located on last layer of dam
       (at present 807.5 m) ignition (sediment) tubes are established in every 10 m distance
   2. Rotary water supplying system and water and water resistant building, with following

   -   Two floating pup stations on pontoons, (one working, one reserve) which consists of two
       pumps and are serving for giving return waters from tailing dump to concentrating mill.
   -   Tube of water returned to factory (Ду 400 mm);
   -   Upper weir of tailing dump at 816-819 m marking, which locks extreme part of puddle
       from “Bolis Khevi”
   -   water collector of 1200m diameter steel tubes in iron concrete cover, for leaking “Bolis
       khevi’ stream and other waste water
   -   Water catching ditches of slope, which are for collecting atmospheric sediments from
       nearby reliefs and for sending to water collector

   1. Draining building, which is part of:
   -   Drain ditches on forward boards of dam;

    -   collector dam for drain water in front of pioneer
    -   Drain water pimp station.

Following technological scheme is used for filling of copper pyrite tailing dump: concentrate
ore waste (tails) and all other technological seepages flow in water collecting “Zumf” of
concentrating mill, then pulp hydro transportation via pumps and 400m main piping on 22 km
distance and then along working layer.

Pulp distributor 100mm diameter tubes are joining to marked pulp tap in every 10 m, via them
pulp consecutive planned precipitation on tailing dump beach is processed.

According to the project minimal width of beach mustn’t be less then 200m. Tailing dump
surface is formed into two zones, as a result of pulp precipitation, beach and puddle, in which
two float    (of pontoon) pump stations are installed, from where         cleaned water pumping
(returning) to concentrating mill is processed, for using again in technological process.

Corresponding observations and control for safe exploitation of hydro technical buildings are
foreseen by project, depression angle condition control in dam mass is one of the main among
their parameters, Piezometers are installed on separate layers of dam, via them filtration process
control is fulfilled.

Tailing dump industry exploitation foresees environment protection arrangements in case to
prevent pollution of water resources and air basin.

Rotary water supplying system of tailing dump industry excludes dipping of water processed in
concentrating mill, into the surface water object. Water, after cleaning, returns to the closed
cycle of concentrating mill.

In case to reduce negative influences on atmosphere, technology of tails layered precipitation is
obtained – with 0.5m thickness, against spreading fine dispersive dust of tails in air. This
provides conserving of beach zone in damp (wet) condition, and cultivation of plants on
platforms and slopes of dam layers is fulfilled.

For safety exploitation of all buildings of tail dump industry, continually control and
observations on qualitative and quantitative indexes of hydro technical buildings operating
mode, is accomplished by corresponding services of JSC “Madneuli”.

The main controling parametres are considerd by the project:
- Difference between heights of upper platform of dam and mirror surface of puddle must be
preseved within the limits of 2.5m .
-      Minimal width of tailing dump beach must be minimum 200m.
-      consistence of pulp 1:6, thickness – 1.107 tn/m³;
-      General inclination of dam layer sloping till 15th layer must be 1:4, and 1:6 above;
-      Width of tails synchronous precipitation front must be no more than 100-120m.
#1, 2, 3 Calculation for detecting actual conditions of depression angle is processed monthly
via piezometers on control axis.

Revision on pulp tap is accomplished quarterly.

                                            Other waste

Except main technological wastes in JSC “Madneuli” – idle rock, tails, there are also four
categories of waste:
                                 •   building refuse;
                                 •   Industrial waste;
                                 •   Domestic waste;
                                 •   Scrap waste.

Building refuse
Many repair and building works were carried out on enterprise territory. Building refuse, which,
usually, consists of concrete pieces, brick pieces and wooden material, is thrown near grove,
between mechanical workshop and tailing piping zones.

Unused buildings in opencast pit zone, near workshop zone, are destroyed by internal contractor
and materials are recycled. Other buildings as boiler-house and unused fuel stations are

Industrial waste
Industrial waste are: produced oil, old tires, containers, filtration materials and etc.
Produced oil firstly is collected individually on separate objects, and then is gathered in
petroleum storage depot near railway.

Old tires are carried to idle rock dump, part of them is used for strengthening boards of internal
roads. Opportunities of using or processing these tires are studied at present. Other parts of
marked waste are thrown on area near tailing dump piping and along factory territory. It is
necessary these waste to be recycled or collected by contractor and to be taken to special places.

Domestic waste
Collecting and carrying out of domestic waste is accomplished by contractor to municipal
landfill, which is located outside of Kazreti county territory.
Scrap waste
Scrap waste of enterprise is collected at the workshop industry territory. Its carrying is
accomplished by contractor.

Secondary use of waste
1) In Jsc “Madneuli” “acid” water formed within the frames of mine property and adjacent
territory is collected via using special water industry system (Dam, pump equipment, piping,
regulation volumes, etc. ) and than is sent to concentrating mill.

To clean marked acid water from copper ions, technological mehod of copper cementation is
established in concentrating mill, via using activated iron powder, for that 5 conical shape
reactors are installed in the factory.

Reactors work via uninterrupted acting mode. Productivity of Each of them is 50cbm/hr; in total 250
cbm/hr. Average annual seepage of pit acid water is 880.0 thousand cbm/hr, approximately 100 cbm per
hour. Accordingly total strength of reactors is twice more powerful than seepage. Water processed in
reactors is sent to neutralization camera.

water recieved after its leaching            is pumped ti tailing dump, where it also undergoes
neitralization, after this it is finnaly cleaned from heavy metals and is returned to closed
technological cycle.

2. 3. Opportunities of, processing waste colected in copper-pyrite tailing dump, via new
technology      is studied at present time. Mentioned Company is located in the area of JSC
Madneuli idle rock dumps.

3. At present is studyed possibility of treatment waste collected in copper-pyrite tailing dump by
new technology.
Preliminary resultes are hopeful.

During open pit ore processing natural landscape is influenced, its biological components and
ecological foundation transformed, issue is very difficult.

One of the harmful influence on the ground is idle rocks stocked around the pit.
   Four dump is prepared.
   In purpose to avoid this problem in Company operates recultivation area.
    Recultivation works started approximately 15 years ago.

                                      FLORA AND FAUNA
Flora and Fauna are very important for human existence and therefore during evaluation of direct
or indirect influence of human being on environment is necessary to know what damage can be
done to nature during Company operating period.

During many years influence of Company has been soread near territory, where concentration of
heavy metals was high, therefore is discussed only existing plants at this area, which mainly is
presented by typical desert and semidesertplant unities. Where leading value has such sort of
habitats as : Salsola dendroides,        Salsola ericoides, Alhagi pseudoalhagi,        Centaurea

solstitialis,   Zygophyllus      fabago,    Cynanchum acutum and etc.    Near channels and humid
places are offerd by Arundo donax, Typha latifolia,          Tamarix ramosissima, Salix alba and
other fragments of small area. In groves main wood plants are Populus alba, Salix alba and
Tamarix ramosissima.

                              ASSESSMENT OF SOCIAL IMPACT
One of the most important factors for socio-economic development of Georgia is to harmonize
the utilization of natural resources of the country, along with generation and consumption of
material wealth. Towards this end it is essential to introduce environmentally friendly and safe
methods. It is necessary to adhere to sustainable development requirements based on
international practice. Sustainable development is the system of public development whereby a
mixture of economic development of the society and environmental protection ensures the
development of living standards of general public and right of the future generations to benefit
from natural resources and environment being uttetly protected from unrecovered quantitative
and qualitative changes.

Introduction of principles for sustainable development should be based on the primary
enforcement of the following principles acknowledged with international relations:

   •   People have right to harmonious co-existance with nature and have healthy and fruitful
   •   States have sovereign right to use their own resources under environmental and economic
       policies and be liable for avoiding harm to nature from activities under their controle on
       territories of foreign countries;

•   Implementation of development right should be enforced so that the needs of current and
    future generations are met for economic development and environmental protection;
•   To achieve sustainable development the environmental protection should become an
    integral part of development process and shall not be viewed as a separate goal;
•   Essential pre-condition of sustainable development is the eradicate poverty. Every state
    and nation should cooperate towards this end to reduce sharp differences between the
    living standards and to meet the basic needs of general public globally;
•   Special importance should be given to the condition and needs of economically and
    environmentally disadvantaged countries;
•   States cooperate with a global cooperation aspiration, to maintain, protect and recover
    healthy eco-system and unity of the planet. Every state shares common responsibility
    over the degradation of global enviromment pari passu their “contribution”. By
    participating in the international cooperation for sustainable development, the developed
    countries acknowledge relevant responsibility by taking into account the extent of their
    impact over environment, along with technological and financial possibilities;
•   To ensure sustainable development and higher living standards of each individual the
    states should limit and abolish unviable models of production and utilization, and
    implement applicable demogrphc policies;
•   States should cooperate towards strengthening comprehensive national scientific-research
    potential to achieve the sustainable development through experience sharing in scientific-
    technical progress;
•   States issue legal instruments in the field of environment on the grounds of their domestic
    specifics as socio-economic standards of one country may not be adaptable to others –
    especially in emerging markets;
•   To solve the environmental problems the States should cooperate to establish favourable
    and open international system, which shall ensure economic growth and sustainable
    development in any given country;
•   States shall facilitate international streamlining of environmental expenditures and
    application of such economic instruments, that enables for the polluting entity pay the
    compensation to the damaged party. In addition, it is essential to avoid breaching the
    public interests, international trade and investments covenants;
•   In environmental problem solving it is utterly important to empower the indegenious
    population, paying due respect to their knowledge and traditional practice. States should

       support the self-identification of local population, their culture and interests, shall also
       ensure their efficient cooperation in attaining sustainable development;
   •   Peace, development and protection of environment are inter-related and integral

                           STATUS OF LABOR & EMPLOYMENT
Out of the social factors dealt by Madneuli JSC the increased employment of local population
(acknowledged as positive factor of infrastructure in Kazreti District in particular and Bolnisi
Region at large).

In relation with the aforesaid, it needs to be noted that in the recent past the number of staff
employed by Madneuli JSC has been increased from 830 to 1476, out of which 356 are engineers
and 1120 – labour force. It is also worth mentioning that 400 people are recruited under the
Presidential employment programme.

Every staff member of Madneuli JSC has medical insurance. In 2007 every individual employed
by the company passed medical check-ups at advanced health clynic. People diagnosed with
some medical complications have been treated under the corporate insurance funding.

From November 1, 2006 Madneuli JSC has launched Labour Safety, Health and Environment
Service, which covers the Department of Environment.
Organizational Chart of the Department is presented below:

Major operational trends of the Department of Environment are as follows:

   •     Regular control over environmental position of the company;

   •     Lab operation with advanced express analyzers;

   •     Monitoring of pit and surface water quality;

   •     Streamlining and analysis of monitoring data;

   •     Planning, organization and implementation of recultivation works;

   •     Submission of statistical reporting forms to the Ministry of Natural Resources and
         Environment of Georgia;

   •     Application to operational licences and permits in the field of environment;

   •     Participation in environmental audits, agreements on cooperation with various
         institutions and memorandums of understanding;

   •     Development of short and long term environmental plans and programmes.

Improvement of environmental position of the company is greatly facilitated by scientific-
research laboratory and recultivation team of the company’s Environmental Department, which
is currently staffed with 13 people, though has a roster of people who are hired on as needed

       Short overview of environmental activities carried out by the company:
         •   Over 15100 acacias have been planted in recultivation area in the period of 2007-
         •   Regular monitoring is conducted on current environmental position;
         •   Lab analysis of samples taken at pre-defined locations, desk research and
         •   State authorities are submitted environmental statistics reports as defined in the
             legislation of Georgia.

Operation of water cleaning unit of the Enrichment plant helps prevent the environmental
hazards. Its major duty is to clean acidified pit waters from heavy metals. The company applies
copper cementation technology, which primarily substantially reduces ione copper concentration
in the water and at a later stage it pumps the treated water and pulp to the tailing dams. The latter
allows for grounding of heavy metals in tails. Water is then neutralized with the help of lime
milk. As a result, the water gets to the condition of technical water resource and is recovered to
the enrichment plan for further use in flotation process. Currently, the existing technical base is
being modernized. It is planned to boost the extraction of copper and other metals from the

After the new management came to the office, Madneuli JSC has been paying special attention
to the resolution of environmental challenges – technological units like pipes and pumps have
been changed. The company has been actively cooperating with the Ministry of Natural
Resources and Environment of Georgia, other government agencies and mass media.

In line with the consultations with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of
Georgia and results of international tendering, which received bids from seven world known
foreign companies and joint ventures from France, Germany, Poland, USA, UK, South Africa
and Switzerland, the winner was Golder Associates commissioned to deliver environmental &
social audit of Madneuli JSC under IFC standards.

Memorandum of Understanding was entered with the ministry on February 10, 2007 to define
environmental measures to be carried out by the company and is signed by Minister of Natural
Resources and Environment of Georgia and General Director of Madneuli JSC.

                               LABOR AND TECHNICAL SAFETY

Fire safety of production units and the labor force is achieved by adherence to the enforced 
standards and fire safety requirements. Buildings and constructions, as well as individual 
facilities  are  contructed  by  taking  into  consideration  the  fire  safety  categories.  Work 
stations  are  mainly  provided  with  primary  fire  extinguishing  and  water  supply 
mechanisms.  Oil  base,  explosion  materials  warehouse  and  hydro  power  sub‐stations  are 
equipped  with  thunder‐protection  systems.  Handling,  storage  and  dispatch  of  easily 
inflammable and blasting materials is carried out in full compliance with safety rules. 
Plans  for  liquidation  of  potential  accidents  (inter  alia  including  fires)  at  production 
facilities, as well as labor force evacuation plans have been developed and are reviewed on 
an annual basis. 
Parameters  of  major  mining,  transport,  technological  and  electronic  machinery  and 
mechanisms in current operation have been selected in line with requirements of technical 
safety standards and rules of operation, thereby fully meeting their terms and conditions. 
Work  stations,  facilities,  transport  communications,  power  utilities  are  mainly  equipped 
with warning, prohibitive  and reference display signs. 
For  purposes  of  organization  and  coordination  of  labor  and  technical  safety  issues  the 
company  has  established  Labor  Safety  Department  to  carry  out  control  over  production 
process  safety,  performance  of  responsible  mid‐management,  engineers,  technicians  and 
labor  force  in  terms  of  safety  provisions.  The  Department  also  carries  out  trainings, 
qualification courses and capacity building. 
There is a three‐tier control mechanisms introduced in the company for labor and technical 
safety  thereby  being  the  major  form  of  operational  control  on  labor  safety  at  individual 
work  stations,  units,  facilities,  production,  shifts,  etc.  on  a  weekly  and  monthly  basis.  Its 
major  goal  is  to  supervise  production  process,  compliance  of  machinery,  equipment  and 

work  stations  with  safety  requirements,  along  with  performance  monitoring  of  mid‐
management, engineers and technical personnel. 
Hazard  impact  assessment  has  been  carried  out  in  relation  with  the  production  noise.  
Labor safety and social security requirements of production personnel are promulgated in 
the  existing  national  primary  and  secondary  legislation  of  the  Republic  of  Georgia  and 
applicable  standards.  Technological  machinery  and  equipment  used  in  the  production 
process fully meet current requirements. 
Provisions related to production noise are promulgated in the following documents: 
    • Law of Georgia on Environment, issued in 1996; 
    • Law of Georgia on Health Care, issued in 1997; 
    • Labor Code of Georgia, issued in 2006; 
    • Law of Georgia on Protection of Atmospheric Air, issued in 1999. 
Major provisions regarding the noise control define levels of noise emission for machinery 
and equipment, mechanization both for household and industrial buildings and streets. 
In  assessing  the  noise  levels  of  source  machinery  and  equipment  it  is  essential  to  ensure 
the following: 
    -   Assess  the  potential  noise  level  at  operating  facilities  and  residential  areas  and  if 
        applicable – to develop mitigation measures; 
    -   Permitted  thresholds  of  noise  pressures  and  levels  in  residential  areas  are 
        presented in the Table below.

According  to  the  technical  parameters  of  machinery  and  equipment  maximum  level  of 
noise at work stations may be 85 degrees. Actual impact of noise depends on the location of 

machinery  and  equipment,  real  emission  of  noise  and  local  ratio  of  noise  dousing  in 
atmospheric air as indicated in Table 2.

Table 2 shows noise dousing ratio (by taking into account the distance from the source of 
atmospheric noise) for open areas which does not envisage any natural barriers between 
the sources and residential areas which would reduce the level of noise. 
The  aforesaid  needs  to  be  taken  into  account  while  selecting  residential  and  recreational 
areas, i.e. maximum noise intensity for industrial activities with the use of machinery and 
equipment  in  accordance  of  technical  parameters  is  85  degrees,  while  45  degrees  or  less 
should be ensured for residential and recreational areas. 
Due to the fact that the industrial facility is located far from residential area local residents 
are not disturbed by noise. 
Support  staff  and  the  labor  force  operating  heavy  machinery  and  equipment  or  at  other 
noisy locations may be impacted by excess noise. The permitted noise level is 85 decibells. 
Current situation at the Enrichment Plant of JSC Madneuli is as follows: 
− Situation with natural lighting is satisfactory and meets sanitary requirements; 
−  The only exception from the above is Mills 4 and 5;
− Artificial lighting at the Principle Building is satisfactory;
− In  warm  periods  of  the  year  meteorologic  factor  from  hygene  perspective  is  also 
− In cold periods of the year the warmth is not satisfactory, due to the low temperature;
− Noise intensity is mainly within the pre‐defined norms (85 decibells).

Excess norms are observed in Mills, as follows: 
               Mill 4 within 5‐11 decibells; 
               Mill 7 within 5‐13 decibells; 
               Mill 8 within 4‐10 decibells; 
Pressure range is 125‐8000 herz. 
At flotation chambers in close vicinity of the machinery the noise intensity at work stations 
is in excess of the pre‐defined norms by 2‐7 decibells. Pressure range is 250‐8000 herz. 
Noise excessively is observed also in controle flotation chambers –  at first section by 3‐5 
decibells, and 4‐7 decibells in general at the chamber. 
Major source of noise at the principle building are the mills and vertical pumps. 
    • In  terms  of  natural  daylight  the  situation  is  satisfactory  and  meets  the  applicable 
       sanitary requirements; 
    • Artificial lighting in crushing plant is even, localized and also satisfactory. The level 
       of  light  distribution  in  the  space  meets  the  applicable  sanitary  requirements.  The 
       only  exception  is  a  number  of  individual  locations,  which  lacks  bulbs  as  they  are 
       either out of order or replacements are badly needed; 
    • In warm periods of the year the climate factor inside the building in terms of hygene 
       norms is also satisfactory; 
    • In cold periods of time temperature is unsatisfactory due to being low; 
    • Noise  intensity  is  mainly  within  the  norms  (85  db)  with  the  following  locations 
       being over the threshold only: 
           o Large ore segregation plant – by 2‐3 db, with currency range being 500‐8000 
           o Medium ore segregation plant – by 207 db, with currency range being 250‐
               8000 herz; 

           o Fine ore segregation plant – by 4‐7 db, with currency range being 250‐4000 
    • Major sources of noise at the crushing plant is sieve and crushing machinery. 
Filtering and Drying Workshops of Enrichment Plant of JSC Madneuli 
    • In  terms  of  natural  lighting  the  situation  is  satisfactory  and  meets  the  applicable 
        sanitary requirements; 
    • Artificial lighting in crushing plant is even, localized and also satisfactory. The level 
        of  light  distribution  in  the  space  meets  the  applicable  sanitary  requirements.  The 
        only  exception  is  vacuum‐filtering  chamber,  where  a  number  of  bulbs  are  out  of 
    • In warm periods of the year the climate factor inside the building in terms of hygene 
        norms is also satisfactory; 
    • In cold periods of time temperature is unsatisfactory due to being low; 
    • Noise  intensity  is  mainly  within  the  norms  (85  db),  with  excessive  intensity 
        witnessed  only  at  the  following  locations:  vacuum‐filtering  and  air‐blowing 
        chambers:  by  2‐18  db  at  air‐blowing  chamber  with  currency  range  being  250‐500 
        herz and by 2‐6 db at the compressor with currency range being 250‐8000 herz; 
    • Major sources of noise at filtering‐drying plant are compressors and air‐blowers. 
Personnel  of  the  company  who  work  directly  in  the  excessively  noisy  locations  of  the 
enterprise  are  equipped  with  protective  earpieces  and  they  have  been  trained  in  their 
application. The company staff are required to use them until the noise measuring devise 
indicates that protection is no more needed. In addition, earpieces are available for use to 
other employees when they are instructed to work in the vicinity of heavy machinery or in 
such locations where the noise level is over 85 db. 
In general, it needs to be noted that there are no precise criteria developed for noise impact 
from construction and production activities. In this regard, the other alternative is to use 
threshold  developed  in  soviet  rule  existing  back  in  USSR  –  85  db  during  daytime.  It  also 
needs  to  be  taken  into  account  that  guiding  principles  and  recommendations  of  World 
Health Organization indicate 50 db as a permitted threshold of noise for people working in 

offices,  and  85  db  for  people  working  directly  at  heavy  machinery  and  industrial 
production lines. 
It also needs to be mentioned that the company noise does not disturb the local population 
as the aforesaid operations are pretty much distanced from the nearest residential area of 
Below are the assessments given for the existing noise levels in the vicinity of operational 
locations  and  around  the  nearest  sensitive  receptors  of  production  facilities.  Analysis  of 
sources  of  noise  from  the  technological  cycle    and  measures  applied  for  noise  reduction 
require the sensitivity definition of existing background levels and local receptors (impact 
receivers).  In  locations,  which  are  spotted  as  potentially  significantly  impacted  ones,  it  is 
essential to plan respectively for actions to be implemented for noise reduction – both for 
people working directly at noisy locations and those who are stationed far from the noise 
producing locations. 
                               FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS 
                              PROTECTION OF WATER RESOURCES 
            1. The  company  has  one  permanent  and  organized  discharge  point  (draining 
                channel  at  tailing  dam)  and  one  periodic  discharge  point  for  emergency 
                situations from regulation facility in the vicinity of the enrichment plant (for 
                effluent waters treated accordingly). 
                Discharge  of  the  said  waters  in  surface  water  facilities  is  permitted  if 
                threshold norms are adhered to and provided that measures will be taken for 
                gradual  reduction  and  ultimate  elimination  of  any  diffusion  discharges 
                (please  see  the  following  chapter  on  essential  action  plan  for  adherence  to 
                threshold norms). 
            2. Discharge  water  from  tailing  dams  3  and  4  from  Rv.  Poladauri  are 
                categorized  as  “historical  pollution”  rather  than  the  result  of  current 
                operation of the company. 
                In relation with this it needs to be mentioned that lab tests have confirmed 
                that  impact  of  the  discharge  waters  on  Rv.  Poladauri  water  basin  is 
                insignificant.  Tailor‐made  software  ECOLOG  applied  regularly  by  the 

               company  for  sampling  has  identified  that  similar  positive  results  are 
               observed elsewhere. 
               Considering the fact that the impact of discharge waters from tailing dams 3 
               and  4  on  Rv.  Poladauri  are  not  adequately  studied  and  the  only  data  is 
               available  from  periodic  observations  by  sole  initiative  of  JSC  Madneuli.  It  is 
               essential  to  introduce  regular  monitoring  on  Rv.  Poladauri  water  quality  as 
               indicated in the attached schedule. 
                                ATMOSPHERIC AIR PROTECTION 
Report  on  the  spread  of  harmful  substances  has  indicated  that  values  of  none  of  the 
calculated  maximum  concentration  of  harmful  substances  in  monitoring  square 
(7000x7000m, steps 1000m) and in observation location (x=700, y=850m, a public school 
in Kazreti district) exceeds the  threshold norm of permitted concentration. Hence, values 
for  the  spread  of  harmful  substances    may  be  regarded  as  permitted  thresholds.  Major 
harmful substances classifying the quality of atmospheric air quality are the dust and azot 
dioxide. Share of other harmful substances in formation of the atmospheric air quality are 
substancially lower. 
                                     WASTE MANAGEMENT 
Further disposal of waste should meet the waste management strategy. Waste deposited at 
the enterprise territory should be classified and transported to the relevant location along 
with the polluted soil. A plan needs to be developed for covering the said locations and the 
latter should be restored. 
Inertive construction waste should be deposited to the designated areas with a preminary 
agreement of local authorities. 
                                        FLORA AND FAUNA 
The  above  listed  types  are  distributed  in  a  fragmented  manner  as  small  groups  or 
individual  species in  the  vicinity  of  JSC  Madneuli.  These are trivial plants  found  in  south‐
east of Georgia. There are no Red Data Book species found locally. 

Operation of JSC Madneuli in the indicated territory will not cause any type of damage to 
the natural habitat, and namely to its plants. With the purpose of production growth and 
development the company has processed new locations mainly covered with woods. This 
action  was  in  full  compliance  with  the  permit  issued  to  the  company  by  the  Ministry  of 
Environment and Natural Resources, after the applicable fee was paid to the state budget. 
In  terms  of  the  local  animal  stock  the  situation  is  more  complicated,  as  the  polluting 
ingredients, and heavy metals among them even in small dozes have a negative impact on 
them.  Georgia  has  acceded  to  the  Bonn  (Migration  Species)  and  Ramsar  (Protection  of 
Boggy Ecological Systems) Conventions, according to which all the birds of passage, wing‐
hand and spine aminal stock residing in the vicinity of multiple water basins are subject to 
special  care  and  attention.  This  fact  has  conditioned  the  great  number  of  protected  dairy 
cattle and birds and thus the company has an increased responsibility over them. 
Considering  the  fact  that  JSC  Madneuli  over  the  last  two  years  has  implemented  a  set  of 
measures it achieved full qualitative recovery of Rv. Mashavera and operation of the said 
company is fully acceptable.

Despite the fact that the maximum level of formed concentration does not exceed the pre‐
defined  norms  in  residential  areas,  it  is  essential  to  implementat  the  dust  emission 
reduction  measures  towards  the  on‐site  and  organized  sources  (enrichment  plant).  This 
will  enable  the  company  to  reach  design  engineering  parameters  of  cleaning  facilities 
(scrubbers), which up until now have been 62, 40, 71 and 85% for discharge sources 1, 2, 3 
and  4  respectively,  while  the  design  engineering  parameters  of  cleaning  for  the  latter  is 
around  95%  through  maximum  localization  aod  aspiration  air  and  reduction  of  dust 
concentration  in  work  areas  to  the  permitted  levels.  After  the  resolution  of  design 
engineering  systems  of  aspiration  the  law  envisages  the  development  of  applicable 
technical  passports  for  each  individual  mechanism  and  quarterly  measurement  of  their 
effectiveness thereby being captured in actual data log. 
For  unorganized  sources  (mainly  the  transportation  units)  it  is  recommended  in  hot  and 
dry  climates  of  summer  to  ensure  regular  and  intensive  watering  of  main  roads  to 
minimize the dust from such sources. Frequency of watering needs to be defined internally 
by the company on the grounds of identified needs. 
Considering  all  the  above  mentioned,  primarily  restoration  and  rehabilitation  projects 
need to be developed (by the end of 2008) for all the aspiration systems and dust collection 
machines  for  large  (source  2),  mediaum  and  fine  crushing  (source  3)  of  the  enrichment 
plant,  along  with  lime  workshop  (source  1)  and  the  main  building  (source  4).  This  will 
enable the practical implementation of the said projects in 2009‐2010. After they are put in 
place  and  the  dust  collection  machines  ensure  95%  collection  the  air  aspiration  will  be

Lab  sampling  methods  should  be  agreed  with  the  Ministry  of  Environment  and  Natural 
Resources of Georgia and its respective subordinated agencies. 
Water Utilisation Body is responsible for the following: 
    − Conduct primary water supply measurement in the pre‐defined log books; 
    − Submit accurate information to the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources 
       of Georgia on the volume of effluent waters and their composition. 
    − In paralel with mediation measures for addressing the excessive threshold norms on 
       permitted  discharge  in  effluent  waters,  the  company  coordinator  (responsible 
       official)  for  environmental  issues  should  immediately  notify  the  Ministry  of 
       Environment  and  Natural  Resources  of  Georgia.  The  communicated  information 
       should contain reasons for the breach and measures taken to address the situation, 
       along with the extreme levels of pollution identified in water facilities. 
                        OVER THE QUALITY OF ATMOSPHERIC AIR 

Controle over the adherence to the norms set for permitted spread of pollutants in 
atmospheric air comprise the following: 
       1. Regular monitoring of air pollution sources; 
       2. Regular instrumental control over enterprise pollution. 
Tier I Measures comprise operation of harmful substance producing technological machine 
fleet in an ordinary regime and proper operation of ventilation and aspiration machines. 
Tier II Measures are include instrumental analysis and definition of air pollution volumes 
at pre‐defined control locations (e.g. sources of pollution, frontiers of enterprise premices, 
work stations, etc.), as well as their verification with permitted thresholds and maximum 
values in any reporting period. 
In cases when thresholds are violated in a given reporting period in view of actual 
concentration of harmful substances in any selected sampling location to be analysed with 
an instrumental method decision needs to be taken for implementing measures to reduce 
the concentration level of harmful substances to the threshold levels. 
Such control of threshold air pollution norms is done on a regular basis in line with the air 
protection legislation of the country. Major harmful substances regularly monitored by the 
company  are  the  dust  and  azot  dioxide.  According  to  the  current  legislation  air  pollution 
volumes with harmful substances is monitored by applying reporting methods. In case of 
instrumental method application the following approach is recommended: pollution source 
category for each source and each J pollutant needs to be defined with a principle “source‐
harmful  substance”.  For  the  definition  of  emission  category  the  calculation  entails  2 
parameters Фккj and кj, which characterise impact of                  J harmful substance upon air
pollution from the source for the area in the vicinity of the enterprise, by applying the
following formula:
       Фккj = (Mкj) / Hk x threshold category j x 100 / (100 – кj);
       Qкj = qкj x (100) / 100 – кj), whereby:
Mкj –(gr/sec) - J value of harmful substance emission at the source;
threshold category j -       (mg/m3) – maximum permitted single concentration in atmospheric

qкj - (threshold category share) – maximum concentration calculated by taking into account
the unfavourable climate conditions (speed and direction of wind) for a given (J) harmful
substance from K source at the border of the nearest residential area.
Active Livelihood Ratio кj (%) – average operational active livelihood ratio for air and dust
collection equipment, which is installed at K source for neutrlising J harm substance.
Hk – (m) geometric height of source spread, for individual sources if Hk < 10 meter, we may
get Hk = 10 m.
Category definition “source-harmful substance” is possible with the following probability:
I category – unequallity is simultaneous:
Фккj > 0,001 and Qкj ≥ 0,5 (for organized source);
Фккj > 0,01 and Qкj ≥ 0,5 (for unorganized source);
II category – unequallity is simultaneous:
Фккj > 0,001 and Qкj < 0,5 (for organized source);
Фккj > 0,01 and Qкj < 0,5 (for unorganized source);
III category – unequallity is simultaneous:
Фккj < 0,001 and Qкj < 0,5 (for organized source);
Фккj < 0,01 and Qкj < 0,5 (for unorganized source);
Hence, it is recomended to schedule the following periodicity of monitoring:
I category – once a quarter;
II category – twice a year;
III category – once a year;
Note: while defining the source category (100/100-active livelihood ratioкj) multiplier is taken
into account the Фккj and Qкj criteria growth monitoring frequency, though it is needs
because aid and dust collection machinery is equipped with huge emmission makers and if
exploited it is possible to witness sharp growth in atmospheric air pollution.
By applying the above formulas we get the following results:
Mкj total = (0.224+1.65+0.843+0.298) = 3.015 g/sec;
Hk average = (15+18+36+34)/4 = 25.75 m;
Active livelihood ration кj average = 64,5%;
qкj = 0,24; we shall get:
Фккj = (Mкj) / Hk x permitted threshold j x 100 / (100 – active livelihood ratio кj)
= 3.015/25.75 x (100/100-64,5) = 0.33
Qкj = qкj x (100) / 100 – active livelihood ratio кj) = 0,24 x (100) / 100 – 64,5) = 0.67

 Фккj = 0.33;
 кj = 0.67. i.e. sources belong to Category I.
