Since it has led the economic revolution to failure, the government is going to exploit the Amulsar gold mine, and through the exploitation of this gold mine, it is going to try to show that there are investments until the end of this year. This is what secretary of the Bright Armenia faction of the National Assembly Gevorg Gorgisyan wrote on his Facebook page.
He particularly stated the following:
“I believe the government is a little afraid of international donors and the expected procedures of the arbitration tribunal which, according to some lawyers, are not even substantiated, and if the government was well-prepared, it wouldn’t have to worry.
First, let’s touch upon the Prime Minister’s previous statements. He claimed that no decision would be made so long as there is no reliable information that exploitation of the gold mine won’t harm the environment, but there was no reliable information since no study was conducted.
Armenia already faces many serious environmental problems due to exploited mines that have caused serious damages to the nature and people’s health in the Lori Province and Syunik Province. The presence of heavy metals in irrigation water poses a risk for farming.
All citizens working in ores have health problems.
As a result of all this, Armenia will also become a part of international scandals since the extractions in Teghut mine fill into Debed River, and this will cause serious damages, if our neighboring countries start complaining.”
