Residents Now Allowing Miners Enter Urut Community Municipality

Residents Now Allowing Miners Enter Urut Community Municipality

"Jin Holding Limited" LLC is in Urut again. The company is trying to organize public hearings for the third time for Urut mineral field (polymetallic) in Stepanavan mining area, Lori Region, in 2021-2024 for the Preliminary Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) application of geological prospecting.

Urut residents do not allow company employees to enter the municipality. Environmentalists and NGO representatives have come to support the residents and to protect their right to live in a healthy environment.

Reminder: the previous two hearings did not take place. The locals boycotted the first hearings scheduled for May, and the company representative did not attend the second hearings, saying that if the locals and the active public were present, they would not allow the hearings to be held again.
