Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ Officials from the Ministry of Mining and the General Agency for Specialized Inspection paid a site visit to the head stream of River Orkhon, located in Tsenkher soum of Arkhangai Province last weekend. At that time, the river was flowing red, because of the excavation in nearly 13 km long area alongside the river shore.

The officials have submitted a demand to the mining company to hold meetings with the local residents to hear their opinions, to pass all required documentations, to allocate the pre-payment for rehabilitation to the state budget, and to ensure blocking leakage of waste water to the river.

The company’s activities are stopped until all demands will be fulfilled.
