Vozrozjdenie Deposit (Vozrozhdenie)

The quarrying of “Vozrozhdenie” deposit has more than a century history. This is the largest and most developed deposit of granite in North-West region of Russia and in the whole Russia. The total square of deposit is 35 hectares. The explored reserves of stones are 8 082,0 thous. m3.

The extraction is being carried out by traditional explosive method combined with diamond-wire sawing all year around 365 days in a year.

This method of extraction in combination with fine-grained structure of “Vozrozhdenie” granite gives an opportunity to obtain good-shaped blocks of all dimensions without loosing of natural quality.

“Vozrozhdenie” granite

“Vozrozhdenie” granite is one of the best-known and most-demanded granites in Russia. Due to stable quality, homogeneous structure and color, physico-mechanical properties and mineral composition “Vozrozhdenie” is an indispensable material for street furnishing and road building. It is equally fine with all types of face finishing.

  • Type of natural stone: granite (ovoid rapakivi)
  • Commercial name: “Vozrozhdenie” (within the area of the quarry the subtype of pink granite “Trout” is enabled).
  • Geological age: Pr1 1 350 - 1 850 Ma
  • Annual extraction of blocks: up to 15 000m3
