karjers ziema 1

Despite the arrival of snow and frost throughout the territory of Latvia, the mining sites of JSC “Latvia’s State Forests” (LVM) continue extraction of minerals from the layer as well as from the stacks of prepared mixtures.

Currently, due to the dry autumn, in the absence of long-term frost and deep snow, at sites where there is no extraction from water, it is also possible to carry out controlled production of mixtures of mineral substances in accordance with the 2+ regulatory sphere system for construction products in accordance with standard EN 13242: 2002 + A1:2007 “Aggregates for unbound and hydraulically bound materials for use in civil engineering work and road construction”.

Production of mixtures of mineral materials takes place at the following sites:

  • Mining site “Deviņziedi”, Balvi Municipality, Krišjāņi Rural Territory, where mixture of minerals 0/32s is produced;
  • Mining site “Ošinieki”, Jēkabpils Municipality, Ābeļi Rural Territory, where crushed mixture of minerals is produced.
