The Service joined the national project “Big Construction”, which is under the patronage of the President of Ukraine, offering the fields with minerals deposits, that are needed for the road construction and major repairs.

In particular, the Service picked up 79 objects with confirmed stocks of sand, and minerals for break stone and quarry stone: granite, migmatite, gneiss, labradorite, charnockite.

“It is the first wave of offers. We studied, which minerals are needed for the construction of regional, local and national roads, arranged such objects, and determined, what State Standards of Ukraine are applied to them.
