What can entry into an Operator Contract give your company?

  1. All mining operations are carried out in accordance with the requirements valid in the Republic of Estonia, EU standards and pursuant to the Mining Act.
  2. The transfer of responsibility for the performance of works, the compliance with safety rules, the management of the operations and the employees, from the owners to us/our partners.
  3. According to the orders, the operator provides insurance for the quality of the crushed stone and the volume of the orders, which provides the owners with a sense of security and stable income.
  4. Land plots, on which mining operations have been carried out, remain in the ownership of the owners, which rules out their imprudent use in the future and provides the owners with the possibility of earning extra income in the future through the further use of the land (for example, the construction of vacation or entertainment facilities near the artificial lakes that were formed as a result of the mining works).
  5. The owners do not have to incur any expenses related to the management of sales operations, the performance of sales, and the timely payment of issued invoices.
  6. The owners will receive extra income, because the provider of the operator service, owing to modern technologies, equipment, and methods of work, will be able to guarantee the intended used of mineral deposits and reduce the amount of siftings with the size of the fraction of 0-4 mm down to 20% of the entire volume of processed crushed stone. When the older type crushing and sieving equipment was used, the amount of fractions with the size of 0–4 mm accounted for approx. 30 – 35% of the total amount of crushed stone. Today, it possible to earn extra net income in the amount of approx. 10-15%.
  7. The owners do not have to incur additional expenses for the repairs of the available equipment, its maintenance etc. This is done by the operator, who is also capable of finding additional equipment, etc., in the event of extra works or an increase in the amount of works ordered by customers.
