The facilities owned by Divriği Hekimhan Madenleri Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş. were transferred to OYAK Group (ERDEMİR Madencilik San. ve Tic. A.Ş.) in 2004 by privatization. However, the provisions of the contract signed with DİVHAN remained without any changes.
As the other Ciner Group companies were engaged in the energy and mining sector, our company, Park Maden, carried out production of an iron ore grade much higher than the average iron grade, which was estimated to be 58% in the contractual obligations, due to its state-of-the-art technology employed from the date of its establishment, and achieved production of iron ore with an average grade of 64%.
The enrichment facility of our company is designed to process a maximum of 120 tons of raw ore per hour. The quantity of raw ore processed per day reaches 2,640 tons by operating about 22 hours a day and the quantity of enriched ore produced by day reaches 1,000 tons with a productivity of up to 50%. A total of 1,772,000 tons of enriched iron ore have been produced and contributed to the economy of Turkey since 1998.
The enriched product produced in our facilities can compete with ore imported from foreign countries in terms of physical and chemical characteristics, and this prevents outflow of currency to foreign countries.
Our company, Park Maden, is an example of the opportunity to process the ore sources of our country using private investments and state-of-the-art technologies, and thereby to strengthen the economy of our country and to provide employment opportunities.
