"JIN HOLDING LIMITED" LLC intends to carry out geological prospecting in the area of Urut mine ore (polymetallic) in Stepanavan mining area, Lori Region. This company, according to RA Government Electronic Register, was registered on February 8, 2021.
Lori Berd Municipality announced on its website on May 5 that the first stage of the public hearing on the application for the preliminary assessment of the geological prospecting works and environmental impact for 2021-2024 submitted by "JIN HOLDING LIMITED" LLC in Urut settlement will take place on May 14. The representatives of local civil society are already opposed to the company's initiative.
Oleg Dulgaryan, President of Alaverdi-based "Community Mobilization and Support Center" NGO, poasted on his Facebook page. "I urge the locals to protect their rights to live and create in a clean environment.”
“We must not allow the opening of a new mine. Gold is the health of our population. They want to open for the enrichment of several people. We will not allow it," Manya Meliqjanyan, President of "Lore Eco-Club” NGO, responded.
It should be noted that in 2015, the permit for geological exploration of Urut mineral ore (polymetallic) in Stepanavan mining area, Lori Region was issued to "EQUIVEST ALLIANCE FOUNDATION" LLC. The permit expired on July 27, 2020.
