An international group of geological scientists visited the Duboi quarry of the enterprise Peterburgtsement in the Leningrad region. The site visit was part of the International Symposium on the Ordovician System as part of the UNESCO International Geological Research Program.

Scientists from Canada, France, Germany, Poland, Belgium, and China participated in the event, and the staff of the Geological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences conducted a tour. They expressed their gratitude to the Eurocement Group for openness to cooperation with the scientific community.

“The participants of the tour collected samples of fauna,” said Anton Brodsky, Geologist. “Of particular interest were brachiopods, colonial corals, and trilobites. Thank you for the warm welcome.”

The study areas of the Duboi quarry have an age of 450 million years. The scientists became acquainted with the geological structure of the sedimentary cover of the Leningrad region, Ordovician deposits, formed in subtropical conditions when the ancient continent of the Baltic Sea drifted in the equatorial part of the Earth.

Eurocement Group has stated that it has a dialogue with the scientific community and regularly provides access to its facilities for field research.
