No third tailing dump in Tukhmanuk

  • by Karina Manukyan

  • Wednesday, July 23, 16:29

 The confrontation of ecologists and Melik village residents against "Mega gold" company, which was going to build the third tailing dump, seems to end. As the head of the "Centre for birds lovers", Silva Adamyan, told Arminfo correspondent, Armenia's Nature Protection Ministry declined the project, as it would negatively affect the environment. 

The project caused displeasure both of ecologists and local residents. In particular, "Mega gold" company did not implement recultivation work at the two  tailing dumps of Tukhmanuk, which contains the risk of heavy metals penetration in soil. 

Adamyan also added that a lawsuit has been filed against "Mega Gold". She has already met with representatives of the law-enforcement agencies, and submitted materials about activity of the company, which they were interested in. 

Last year ecologists called on Armenian Prosecutor General's Office  to revise the license on open pit mining of Tukhmanuk.
