Those Responsible for Funding and Equipping Mining in Amulsar: AEF

10:48, 12 February, 2018

In February 2017, the Armenian Environmental Front published information on philanthropists of Armenian origin who support opening a mine in Amulsar Mountain next to Jermuk.

We are now presenting the key entities responsible for funding and equipping the Amulsar gold mine project.

Swedish State Financial Institutions and Private Equipment Companies

International Financial Institutions and Local Banks

Large Shareholders of Lydian International

We plead with all concerned people to exert public pressure on the above-state institutions to withdraw their financing of this disastrous mining project by all possible means, including by writing emails and calling their headoffices, presenting the true dangers of this project, organizing actions of protests, involving international media etc.

The Amulsar gold mining project planned in close proximity to Jermuk resort is in violation of the national legislation of Armenia; the environmental and social impact assessments are substantially incomplete and incorrect; the project is subject to immediate closure.
