Gold miners of the Amur Region were fined six million rubles for pollution of water bodies in 2020. The environmental prosecutor's office revealed 266 violations of legislation on the protection and use of subsoil in the region.

According to the press service of the regional government, more than 43 million rubles of damage caused to water bodies during the extraction of minerals were recovered through the court, and a ban was imposed on the use of water bodies for three subsoil users.

Governor of the Amur Region Vasily Orlov said that the region is one of the country's leaders in terms of water pollution. He believes that it is necessary, first of all, to strengthen control over the miners of a small amount of placer gold - they are the ones that most pollute water bodies.

In April, as a result of raids in the Selemdzhinsky district, it turned out that ten rivers and streams there were contaminated with suspended solids. Placer gold mining operations are carried out there by Khergu JSC and Koboldo ZDP JSC.

Experts of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), as a result of monitoring in 2020, found that a leader in river pollution after the gold miners in the Far East is the Amur Region.
