On 25th of June in Meghri municipality building a public discussion on application for preliminary environmental impact assessment of extension of the geological study term of Nrnadzor gold mine presented by Nariprof LLC was held.

During 2016-2019 Nariprof LLC has conducted geological - search works in 101.89 hectares of Nrnadzor mineral field based on the results of which the most promising area of 51 hectares was identified where it is planned to carry out geophysical researches during 2019-21.

Magnetism and electric exploration were selected from geophysical methods. The measurements will be made at a scale of 1: 1000 with 18 profiles 50 m from each other.

Besides it is planned to take seven technological samples from the mineral bodies each with a maximum volume of 30m3. The total amount of technological samples will be about 210m3.

In the opinion of the experts of Civil Voice NGO, who also participated in the public discussion, the geophysical research provided by the program cannot have an impact on the environment.

The technical effects of the technological sampling may have a certain impact on the environment.

It is worth mentioning that the mine is located 5km north-west from Nrnadzor village, near Arevik National Park,which is a part of Zangezur biosphere complex.
