The governor of the Magadan region asks the Russian authorities to resolve the issue of gold mining by individuals

During a working trip to Moscow, the Governor of the Magadan Region, Vladimir Pechenyi, discussed with the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev amendments to the law "On Subsoil", allowing individuals to extract gold.

"I asked the Prime Minister to assist us and resolve the issue of free donation, which, in our opinion, has dragged on. For several years there has been a draft law that amends the current law“ On Subsoil. ”These amendments should allow free donation - gold mining individuals. But, unfortunately, he got stuck in the State Duma, "V. Pechenyi told reporters.

The head of the region clarified that "the bill is important not so much in economic terms as in social terms, as it will create new jobs, promote employment of residents of the region in gold mining areas."

"An instruction has been given to two Deputy Prime Ministers, Yuri Trutnev and Alexander Khloponin, to resume work and promote this bill," the Governor of the Magadan Region added.

According to experts, the permission of gold mining to individuals will be able to increase the volume of gold mined in the Magadan region by more than a ton, and will also allow the development of deposits unpromising from the point of view of industrial gold mining, including man-made dumps, to create new jobs without attracting additional investment .
