On Saturday, April 16, specialists from the Ingulets Mining and Processing Plant (InGOK), which is part of the Metinvest group, planted grasses on the vertical slope of dump No. 1 from the side of Ingulets.

A proven effective hydroseeding technique was used: grass seeds were mixed with liquid sludge and applied to the escarpment with a hydromonitor.

With this method, the plants take root well, grow and create a green "shield" on the surface of the dump.

For planting material, rapeseed and flax seeds were chosen.
