Only in October ferromolybdenum was produced  514 tons, which is 0.6% less than the September volume.

In January-October this year the production of molybdenum concentrate  increased by 3.6% to 9,204 tonnes, with a decline of 16.8% to 795  tonnes in September alone. The production of converter (rough) copper  declined in January-October by 6.2% to 9717 tons. At the same time,  the production of converter (rough) copper increased by 21.1% to  1,020 tons on a monthly basis. The production of copper concentrate  increased by 9.1% in January-October to 355.9 thousand tons, and only  in October the volume of production amounted to 39.5 thousand tons,  with a monthly growth of 8.8%.

The production of aluminum foil increased by 14.5% per annum in  January-October to 27,310 tons, and only in October the output of  aluminum foil increased by 22.9% to 3021 tons. The production of  aluminum rolled products, having increased significantly in the  annual cut, amounted to 542 tons, of which only 1 ton was in October.
