Located near POSHTE village , on the road from  SEMIROM  ( Isfahan province)   to Yasuj   (Fars province)   is our approximately 30 Km2 operation zone, on the altitude of nearly 2300 meters .

The Ferrous-Kaolinite deposit is the result of weathering process on a geological formation aged  about 63 million years.  (Late Cretaceous) .

The present minerals according to XRD analysis are mainly:

  • Illite
  • Kaolinite-montmorillonite
  • Montmorillonite
  • Kaolinite
  • Goethite
  • Microcline
  • Quartz
  • Hematite

In some exploitation walls  , advanced geological weathering has led to  emergence of Bauxite.

The proven reserve of the deposit is at least 6 Million tons , with an average of 37% Al2O3 , while the specialists   estimated   the probable reserve to be  much higher.

The applied exploitation method is Open Pit mining. The raw material is then transported to the processing plant on a way of around 6 Kilometer .
