Darkveti Sand

THE ABANDONED FACTORY IN GEORGIA


On the banks of the Kvirila river, between the villages Sareki and Darkveti I found this old abandoned sand factory.

The Kvirila river originates in northwestern Georgia and has many industrial sites along it banks. The sand factory in Darkveri, is close to the city Chiatura in the Imereti province. The town is a working landscape, dominated by manganese mining operations and facilities. Because of the many industrial sites the state developed a rail link to transport sand and manganese ore to Zestaphoni. Some old trains are rusting on the old factory grounds.

I visited this abandoned sand producer along the Kvirila river in 2019.
