The Bogdanovichi quarries, or in other words the Ural Mars, is a quarry where clay was previously mined for a local refractory plant. The deposit area is 76 sq. km. Its color resembles picturesque landscapes and will capture the attention of any visitor.
In 1972, in the city of Bogdanovich, more than 50% of the population was involved in the work of a refractory plant. The plant is well equipped with modern advanced technologies. But at the beginning of the operation of the enterprise, clay was mined near the village of Troitskoye, and before the start of the revolution, the volumes of the necessary raw materials were supplied in large volumes. The local clay was famous for its high content of pyrite and iron.
In 1925, a new field was discovered - near the village of Bainy, which was later nicknamed Bainovichsky. And in a year they managed to extract more than 2,5 kilotons of clay. And for the period 1925-1927. about 8,1 kilotons of clay. And by 1930, due to the large volume of raw materials extraction, the Bogdanovichesky refractory plant was built.
During the Great Patriotic War, the plant was the main supplier of refractory materials, but by this time it was already in Siberia and the Urals, since the former location was no longer safe.
Later, another field was discovered, which was nicknamed Troitsko-Bainovskoye, in which it was possible to extract about 355 square kilometers. necessary raw materials.
A feature of the field is the complexity of the occurrence. Its depth reached 42 meters. And the refractory clay itself, in its composition, allows you to make from itself - quartz grains, pyrite crystals, marcasite.
