Quarry and gallery


At the western outskirt of Dilove village in right bank of Saulyak Stream there are located quarry and gallery. In the quarry within extensively lensed quartz-feldspar-chlorite-sericite schists (common rocks in between Dilovetskiy and Bilopototskiy nappes of Marmaroshskiy massif) there occurs a lens of quartz-carbonate rocks with visible low-sulphide gold mineralization. Quarry dimensions are 250 by 30-40 m, wall height up to 25-30 m. In quartz-carbonate rocks occurs the range of flat-laying isocline folds which main lines coincide with the planes of superimposed secondary schistosity that caused fine-sheeted blastic milonites (phillonites) of the productive horizon in Saulyak deposit.

Ecological conditions are suitable.
