The acting head of Bashkortostan Radiy Khabirov said that in addressing the issue of raw material base of the Bashkir soda company (BSC) needed time to study the situation to make informed decisions.

Earlier in BSK reported that the company may cease production after 2022 because of the lack of raw materials. According to Rosnedra, today the company has no alternative deposits of limestone suitable for chemical characteristics for the production of soda. The only possible source of raw material — MT. Tretau — has a special status, not to start developing it.

«In recent years, the Republic torn by disputes on the subject of the fate of the mountains, on the development of the production base of BSK. And I have repeatedly asked this question. I believe it may be reasonable to take a time-out, you need to carefully examine all parties really understand what’s going on in the project BSK. Understand the fate and significance of this mountain, you need time to calm and clear the proceedings of the situation. And (need – ed) to make an informed decision,» said Habirov told reporters.
