Over the past month, Avellana Gold has carried out a number of activities for infrastructural and environmental improvements in the Muzhievo village in the Transcarpathian region, where the company operates.

 Ecological water filters replacement

Avellana Gold has replaced the zeolite filters for wastewaters in the Muzhievo village with new ones. The filters were restored to purify rain and meltwater coming down from the hills in the village. The company purchased about 4 tons of zeolite, which is placed in special environmental water filters in front of the ditches that accumulate wastewater in Muzhievo. Since zeolite is a well-known absorbent, it absorbs harmful elements and passes already purified water, so that these elements do not enter the general hydrographic network.

Infrastructural improvements

The company helped with road repairs in Muzhievo village. Together with the local asphalt plant, 80 m of the road was cleared and asphalted. Also, the company cleared 300 m of the road with a grader and leveled ditches and pits to make the road passable and comfortable for villagers and vehicles.

Radioactivity test

Avellana Gold analyzed the samples from the Muzhievo polymetallic field for radioactivity. According to the results of the analysis, samples of ores from the deposit meet radiological standards. The inspection was carried out by the testing center of the Volyn branch of the State Soil Protection State Institution.
