“In 2018-2019, RA Environment Ministry carried out a study of abandoned landfills and closed tailing dumps, which also included Nazik closed tailing dump and the waste accumulated in the areas adjacent to the tailing dump. Excesses in the maximum permissible concentrations of vanadium, chromium, nickel, copper, arsenic and lead were recorded in the samples taken from the soil cover of Nazik tailing dump. As a result of field trips, the absence of a layer of soil covering the closed tailing dump, covering the accumulated waste and preventing the spread of waste was recordded in the area adjacent to the Akhtala River.

In case of presenting clear programs with your financing, we are ready to discuss the possible directions of cooperation.”
