“Nariprof” LLC intends to continue the geological prospecting of Nrnadzor (Newvadi) copper and gold-bearing ore vein in Meghri area: the first public hearings on the prolongation of the permit for the geological prospecting and the first stage of the initial assessment will be held at 15:00 on 16 May 2019. Nrnadzor (Newvadi) copper and gold-bearing ore vein is located north-east from Nrnadzor Village of Meghri optimized community, at a distance of 4.5 km, and occupies 1.0 km2 area, according to the expert assessments. The area partially overlaps with the area of Areviq National Park, where geological prospecting is banned to be carried out in line with the governmental resolution №1209 dated on 15.10.2009. Despite this fact, in 2016 RA Nature Protection Ministry issued a positive statement to “Nariprof” LLC provided that the geological prospecting will be excluded in the areas overlapping with Areviq National Park. The geological prospecting is carried out to determine the reserves of the gold and those of accompanying metals. “Nariprof” LLC was founded in 2012.
