Mining Policy

The MLRI Mining Policy Development Process is designed to lead toward constructive changes in mining legislation in Armenia. It is an inclusive, transparent and flexible process that actively seeks the input of civil society.

Social, environmental, economic, workplace, technical and other issues related to metal mining will be addressed through the process. A policy and legislative recommendations paper and other material which will be published at the conclusion of the process will highlight priority issues in the mining sector.

The policy development process and its conclusions will serve to inform the Government of Armenia, the public, diaspora, industry and media about the key challenges and the recommendations for change in the mining sector.

The process will commence in November 2018 with a round table discussion on 6 November and lead toward the publication of a policy paper in March 2019.
