Independent audit concludes minimal probability of Amulsar mine impacting Jermuk springs
YEREVAN, AUGUST 14, ARMENPRESS. The Investigative Committee of Armenia has released the full report of the audit in the Amulsar Gold Mine which was carried out by Advanced Resources Development (ELARD).
The studies concluded that there are very low risks that the Amulsar mine’s polluted waters can impact Jermuk springs, because “groundwater flow and contaminant transport pathways between the Project Area and the Jermuk thermal springs do not exist”.
“Due to the hydraulic and physical setting, the Mine water will not impact Jermuk springs.”
The 190-page “Independent 3rd Party Assessment of the Impacts on Water Resources and Geology, Biodiversity and Air Quality” audit of the Amulsar Mine has been posted online by the Investigative Committee.
