The object is unorganized storage waste of copper-pyrite ore, which was mined at Karabash in the 20th century.

In the biological stage of reclamation, the landfill area, covered with a layer of fertile soil, will be seeded with perennial grasses. These measures will make it possible to stop pollution of the environment in the territory of the waste rock pile n ° 3. The total restoration area will exceed 45 hectares. & Nbsp;

The rehabilitation of the northern and southern sections is expected to be completed by the end of 2022. It is expected that all work on the rest of the recovery sites will be completed within 5 to the next 7 years.
