For the third time an attempt will be made to obtain local residents’ consent for Azatek gold-polymetallic mine development, this time by the newly established “Vayq Invest” LLC.

On January 23, 2020, at 15:00 pm, Zaritap Municipality will hold public hearings to obtain a preliminary consent for the underground operation of Azatek mine in the area called Gyarchin in Zaritap district. The announcement was posted by the municipality on its Facebook page.

According to the electronic system of State Register of Legal Entities of Ministry of Justice, "“Vayq Invest” LLC was registered on January 9, 2020. The only founder of the company is Hrachya Janunts. It should be reminded that the two previous attempts to obtain local residents’ consent for Azatek mine operation were made by Vayk Gold LLC.

In both cases, residents boycotted public hearings. Earlier this year, it was claimed that the mining rights granted to Vayk Gold for Azatek mine had been terminated.
