ArmInfo.The SOS Amulsar initiative posted a photograph on its Facebook page, which indicates the presence of large reserves of uranium at the Amulsar gold deposit. So, according to the record, the letter U of the yellow device indicates the presence of uranium in the measured material. The number "245" indicated opposite it indicates the density of uranium in one ton, in grams. Meanwhile, the norm should be 4 ", - noted in the record.
Earlier, ArmInfo, referring to the work of the famous Armenian scientist Petros Aloyan "Uranium bearing of geological formations in Armenia" noted that the Amulsar occurrence of uranium is located 4 km southeast of the village of Ketchut and 5 km northwest of the top of the mountain of the same name. Approximately 76 tons of uranium were calculated for five sections of the Amulsar manifestation, and taking into account uranium in the thorium section, its total reserves can be estimated at 100 tons. Moreover, according to the studies of another scientist, Professor G. Avagyan, according to 40 samples of Amulsar ore, there are 195 tons of uranium and thorium there. Meanwhile, the development of uranium deposits requires special permission from the government, which Lidian does not have.
According to the company, the deposit contains about 73733 kg of gold with an average grade of 0.78 g per ton, as well as 294.367 tons of silver with an average grade of 9.29 g per ton. At the same time, not a word about uranium itself. Lydian Armenia, which implements the construction of the field, is a subsidiary of British Lydian International. The total cost of the Amulsar project is $ 370 million. The field's life will be 10 years and 4 months, with an average of 200 thousand ounces of gold being mined annually. Amulsar field is the second largest reserves in Armenia.
