Mining and processing of minerals, especially slate and granite, is a fundamental segment of the long-term strategy of Premiot Mining & Resources, which is part of the Premiot investment group. For this purpose, the company acquired two slate mines in northern Moravia and two granite quarries. One is in Slovakia and the other in Central Bohemia.
In the case of Moravian slate, the main goals are the renewal of the tradition of noble production, building a market on a European scale and the application of modern technologies in the processing of this commodity. Both slate mines have mineable reserves of high-quality splittable slate in millions of cubic meters, which represents hundreds of years of production.
The mining and processing of granite in the Czech approach focuses almost exclusively on special noble production; the granite from the Vápenice quarry has significant references from successful implementations in Central Europe. The Čierny Balog granite quarry in central Slovakia is now in the opening phase, and it primarily produces crushed aggregate for line construction and other structures. This assortment in the order of hundreds of thousands of tonnes is already completely sold out for the 2021-2022 period. Both granite quarries have mineable reserves of over 10 million cubic metres, which represents a lifespan of at least 60 years.
