Kumtor mine

Kumtor mine is one of the largest western-operated gold mines in Central Asia. It is located in the Kyrgyz Republic, at around 60 km north of the border with China. It has produced more than 13.2 million ounces of gold between 1997 and the end of 2020. Kyrgyzstan President recently signed a legislation that allows the government to take control of this mine if the facility’s Canadian operator is found to be violating the environmental standards.
