EcoLur

The yellowish acidic water generating from Kavart derelict mine located at a distance of 1 km from Kapan Town, Syunik Region, rich in heavy and hazardous metals, are flowing into the Voghji River, as well as they are flowing through the streets of Kapan Town, as the Armenian Environmental Front Initiative is beating an alarm signal to EcoLur posting on its Facebook page the photos made by Kapan residents:

 “Such acidic brooklets are flowing in some streets in Kapan after the rainfall. This liquid rich in heavy and hazardous elements from the tails of the mine having remained back 40 years ago, as well as mine ways gets continuously spread in the natural environment leaving its consequences on the health of the people. The photos were taken by one of Kapan supporters on 26 May 2019.”

Another post shows photos taken at the height of a bird in Kapan Town:

 “You can see how the yellowish acidic water having generated from Kavart derelict mine and the tails of other mines, rich in heavy and hazardous metals, are flowing into the Voghji River. The photos were taken on 31 May 2019.”
