A company, which has obtained a license for exploration of a coal deposit, has temporarily suspended its activities, Head of Alai district of Kyrgyzstan, Zamirbek Moldokulov, has reported.
According to him, a meeting with residents of Lenin village on the coal deposit, located in Taigak-Tash area, has been held.
“It was not a rally, but a meeting. We gathered people and answered their questions about the coal deposit, as there was misunderstanding. A local investor has obtained a license for exploration, but he has not yet begun work. There is a river nearby, so people are concerned about environmental safety. At the meeting, all parties reached a consensus that the investor would start working only after receiving all the necessary conclusions,” the head of district explained. (24.kg/Ukrainian metal)
