Centerra Gold, Canadian Gold mining company diligently trying to lobby Mongolian Government to start mining The Gatsuurt Gold Property by making it strategic property. This action is violating number of Mongolian and International law and human rights of the local people.
The Gatsuurt deposit is located in the Noyon
Mount forest. This is the sacret mountain which worshiped by the people.
Centerra fenced (closed) off the valley where the naadam Mongolian national celebration
which includes archery, wrestling and horse races were held.
It’s breaching Mongolian forest protection law and
International Environmental Law
right Article 9 local people’s right to have and religion and practice rituals.

River Gatsuurt is a tributary to many small
rivers which feed into the Selenge basin. Selenge river is one of the main
feeders of the Lake Baikal biggest fresh water basin in the world. It is an
ugly contribution to the world’s ever reducing fresh clean drinking water
sources. Just this head water and it’s
forest distraction alone causes countless damage fatal effect of the habitats
foliage and biodiversity of the land and
water up to the Lake Baikal.
In Mongolia people drink river water
because it’s pristine clean. Whole world is struggling to protect fresh water
resource. In order or keep these priceless advantages of Mongolian rivers
protected from the mining with The Law with long Name. Now Mongolian Government looking for away to
go around it. Hoping Gatsuurt mining would inject some cash for their corrupted
political plan limp couple of steps. These self centered people already have
lost their duty to serve their country and people. I think no need to mention
about rights of the future generation of the world.
Mother land Mongolia suffered a lot in the hands
of the latest leaders never ever been in our rich history, Mongolians been this
cruel and heartless to the come land. Our ancestors had been paid for the lives
just for the pinch soil of the country be intact.
I wanted to count all the breaches of the Mongolian and international
