AMULSAR without mine - Fighting for a healthy future

The atmosphere, water, fauna and flora, and ultimately, HUMANS are at risk of life and death.

All this will become a reality if the AMOULSAR gold mine is restarted, the gold mining process entrusted to Lydian Armenia.

The world of Jermuk is known for its unique environment.

  • Clean Air
  • Mineral water
  • Animal species listed in the Red Book.

The operation of the gold mine poses a great danger not only to Jermuk and the surrounding areas, but also to the whole of Armenia.Amulsar is located at the source of the Vorotan and Arpa rivers. Irrigating numerous settlements, these two rivers flow through the Vorotan-Arpa and Arpa-Sevan tunnels into Lake Sevan basin and from Lake Sevan comes the irrigation of the central regions of Armenia - the Hrazdan River.
By restarting the mine and contaminating the aforementioned water resources, Armenia will permanently lose dozens of fish species and numerous wildlife, and over the next 10 years the average life expectancy of a Jermuk resident will be reduced by  a result of exposure to heavy metals.
