Kazakh company’s workers evacuated from Bozymchak copper-gold mine
At least 500 Kazakh citizens working in mines in Kyrgyzstan are returning to their homeland. One domestic company had to evacuate its workers from the Bozymchak copper and gold mine. Currently, only a few are left at the mining and processing complex, including those who are responsible for the maintenance of the facility.
“Work at the Bozymchak field has been suspended since October 6. Only part of the staff continues working at the site. These are mainly boiler room workers, electricians and security personnel. We hope that the suspension of activities will not significantly affect the planned output and that we will be able to resume the work soon,” said Yermek Dyuzkenev, manager of the Corporate Communications Department of a Kazakh company.
As for the political situation in the neighboring country, President of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbay Jeenbekov has dismissed the country’s cabinet of ministers headed by the Prime Minister, the President’s press service reported. He earlier announced his readiness to resign if the situation in the country stabilizes.
