In the Magadan region, gold miners were brought to administrative responsibility for violating environmental laws. As the prosecutor's office of the Yagodninsky district established, during the mining of gold-containing raw materials, pollutants got into the Susuman river.

According to the press service of the supervisory authority, the site did not have a closed and isolated water consumption system when washing sand. There was also no sludge tank, and process water with a high content of suspended solids was discharged and, through 400 meters, fell into the Susuman River.

After making a submission to the prosecutor, the gold washing equipment was stopped. Three officials were brought to administrative responsibility, cases were sent for consideration to the Susumano-Yagodninsky inter-district department of control, supervision and fish protection.
