Ultramafic rocks of the Aganozero chromium ore deposit (South Karelia) as a non-conventional magnesium-silicate raw material for the production of new ceramic materials
Ultramafic rocks of the Aganozero chromium ore deposit located in South Karelia are of practical interest as a high-Mg raw material for industrial application. The preliminary results of the study of high-Mg rocks and minerals from the Aganozero deposit for the production of new materials are reported. The high technological level and economic efficiency of the ceramic materials produced, based on Karelia’s high-Mg rocks and industrial minerals, were achieved by reducing energy consumption and simplifying the technological process. The practical application of local types of mineral products will increase the raw materials potential for the production of various types of refractories and industrial ceramics.
