Today, at the stage of development of deposits, we have already come close to you, now we are in search of new approaches to mining. So here we are. I saw many advanced technologies that your company adapts and applies successfully. For example, multilateral horizontal drilling with small-sized machines, in very deep wells. I am glad that the Belarusians, with whom we came from the same school, many of whom I’ve known for a long time from the collaborative works in the North, apply these technologies”.
