An outstanding miner-salt miner was noted in the Orenburg region


In the Russalt Society in Sol-Iletsk, Orenburg Region, one of the best salt miners, Honored Worker of the Industry, Sergey Panasenko, was solemnly celebrated on a well-deserved rest. People who have been working in salt mines for years are people of a special formation, accustomed to working in harsh conditions. They say about such “salt of the earth”: strong, responsible, courageous.

Honoring the outstanding employee of the industry, colleagues and management did not skimp on warm words and congratulations. For many years of conscientious work, mining machine operator Sergey Panasenko was presented with a valuable commemorative gift.

“Sergey Nikolaevich is a real man, a plowman!”

said the head of the mining section Konstantin Matveev about his colleague.

“A powerful, strong, healthy man, a hero who loves his work and gives himself completely to it. Pioneer of new horizons. Arrived at work half an hour before, never sat idle for a minute. He worked in harsh conditions, in a confined space, one on one with the breed. Himself a professional with a capital letter, he constantly taught the younger generation. Now these specialists proudly continue his work.

More than 1,200 people work at Russalt enterprises throughout Russia, but such people as Sergey Nikolaevich are in a special account – the whole team is equal to them. According to colleagues, he always acted twice as actively and faster, often performing real labor feats. So, in three years, he was able to prepare 8 chambers of a new horizon for clean excavation, providing a front of work for several years to come!

Over the years, Sergei Panasenko led the tunneling of mining and development workings of floors: -132/-160 meters, -185/-215 meters, -240/-270 meters. From October 2017 (the start of work on the excavation of mining and development workings of the floor -240/-270 meters) to April 2021, out of the workings actually completed to date on this floor (about 15,000 meters), Sergey Nikolayevich walked 12,000 meters. And today, all mining and preparation workings of the central section of the floor -240/-270 meters have been completely passed.

“Powerful labor resource, ability to work in a team, reliable friend”

this is how his colleagues speak about him.

“In her spare time, she likes to travel and beekeeping. In the family – a beloved father and grandfather, who, thanks to his upbringing, firmly put all his loved ones on their feet. With a sense of humor, sociable, attracts people to him. Long life and good health to you, Sergey Nikolaevich! Thank you for your work!

In the salt mines of Sol-Iletsk, salt is mined, consisting of environmentally friendly crystalline minerals over 270 million years old. Until 1889, salt was mined at the Iletsk deposit in an open way. Then, until 1926, mining was carried out underground – at a depth of 140 meters. From 1924, the excavation of the reserves of Mine No. 1 was carried out until its flooding in 1979. During its operation, 12 million tons of salt were mined.

In 1964, the extraction of the reserves of Mine No. 2 began at a depth of 280 meters. Since 2004, salt has been mined at a depth of 330 meters with recoverable reserves of 20 million tons.

A deposit is currently being developed in Sol-Iletsk, with an annual capacity of approximately 1,250,000 tons per year. Explored balance reserves – 568,406,000 tons of salt.
