The head of Chukotka asked Vladimir Putin for financial help for gold mining
The governor of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug Roman Kopin sent a letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin asking him to support gold mining in the region. Vladimir Putin instructed the head of the Ministry of Natural Resources Dmitry Kobylkin to work out this issue.
Roman Kopin asked to increase the state financing of geological exploration and to expand the licensing mechanisms for subsoil blocks. As reported by Kommersant with reference to Vedomosti, the head of Chukotka said that the reserves of the most rich gold ore deposits - Kupol and Dvoinoye - are depleted.
In the undistributed fund of the subsoil of the region there are only 95,2 tons. In 2017, the total gold production in Chukotka was 25,3 tonnes. Roman Kopin noted that the territory has a large number of promising facilities and the necessary infrastructure that should be supported.
