Yerakini Mine Facilities

Grecian Magnesite's major deposits and production facilities are located in Chalkidiki, northern Greece. The "Chalkidiki" deposits consist of three main active concessions: Yerakini 7 km2, Ormilia 10 km2 and Kastri 23 km2. Chalkidiki's magnesite is famous for its whiteness due to the low iron content (as low as 0.02% Fe in the calcined/final product) and the low levels of heavy metals and trace elements. Moreover, low lime content and microcrystalline structure are its additional advantages.

Mining of magnesite ore is carried out open cast. The facilities employed, which constitute a unique and original production process, have been designed, built and further developed by the company itself to suit the type of deposits at its disposal and thereafter, to fully meet marketing needs. Of course this development did not come overnight but has been the result of years of continuous effort.
