So far Qajaran town has no observation site founded to observe atmospheric air. From 2011 to 2012 the Nature Protection Ministry possessed no data about air quality in Qajaran town,” says Nature Protection Ministry reply letter addressed to EcoLur. It also says that the reason is the absence of any state order.
For our part we would like to mention that Qajaran Copper and Molybdenum mine is located in the town boundaries and is open mined. The resident complain that dust generated from explosions cover their town and they breathe in heavy and toxic metals. The Ministry promises that the observation site will be placed in Qajaran from July.
