Another gold deposit put into operation


November 30, Fineko/abc.az. AzerGold has commissioned Agyohush gold deposit as the first step towards creating a regional processing zone.

ABC.AZ reports that on the basis of the Chovdar mine located in Dashkesan, a decision was made to create an integrated regional processing zone Chovdar. The first phase of the field's operation (Agyohush 1) is currently beginning.

"Despite the fact that Agyohush is considered a relatively small deposit, its location near the existing Chovdar gold mining enterprise creates favorable conditions for conducting operational work here without creating additional infrastructure and capital investments. The operation project will consist of three stages (Agyohush 1, Agyohush 2, Agyohush 3) to be implemented through the Chovdar integrated regional processing site," AzerGold’s chairman Zakir Ibragimov said.
