Andrey Tarasenko - acting The head of the Cabinet of Ministers of Yakutia intends to apply to "Rosgeology " with a request to audit licenses for exploration and production of precious metals in the fields of the Arctic region, the press service of the administration of the head and government of the republic reports.
During his working visit to the Ust-Yansky District of Yakutia, Tarasenko drew attention to the problems of the development of the mining industry in the territory of the district.
Currently, licenses for exploration and development of gold and tin deposits in the republic are issued by hundreds, while there are much fewer enterprises that actually fulfill the terms of the licenses. It was noted that the rate of development of the industry in the district, in particular, is constrained by the buyers of licenses, who acquire them in order to resell.
"In this case, we will have to contact " Rosgeologia "in order to audit the issued licenses and in the future apply for the revocation of licenses of those who have not actually started work and thereby violate the terms of the agreement ", - said the acting head of Tarasenko.
