History of Novotroitsk

Novotroitsk appeared as a settlement of peasant immigrants from Ukraine in the early 20th century. Other small farms, such as Silnov, Akkermanovsky, and Habarny were founded around.

In the fall of 1929 the geologist I.L.Rudnitsky discovered the Halilovsky field of hematites, which stood out with their rare structure that contained chrome, nickel, titan, and manganese. In June, 1931 it was decided to start construction of a large iron and steel works on the basis of Halilovsky ores and Karaganda coals. However, a detailed design on plant construction was developed only in 1933. And yet, in 1935 the construction was frozen, apparently owing to shortage of means and labor - the country was building a few other large metallurgical productions.

In spring of 1939 the decree about the beginning of construction of iron and steel works was signed. In the summer of 1939 it was decided to accept the chosen Novotroitsk platform for construction of Halilovsky iron and steel works...

In 1938 the Akkermanovsky mine became operative.

The construction of the first shops of iron and steel works began in summer of 1942; several two-storeyed houses were built.

In 1945 Novotroitsk became a town due to merge of working settlements Novotroitsk and Akkermanovka. It was named after Novotroitsk Village founded by immigrants to the South Ural from the Russian village of Troitskoye. The towns population reached 17 thousand people in 1945.
