Lydian International's response to rejoinder by Pan-Armenian Environmental Front (PAEF) civic initiative

Author: Lydian International, Published on: 11 January 2017

"Lydian International response to the Pan Armenian Environmental Front", 23 December 2016

We remain committed to constructive dialogue with all of our stakeholders and respect the right of the Pan Armenian Environmental Front (PAEF) to scrutinise our environmental and social performance...However, we are disappointed that PAEF refuses to engage in a serious manner with the work of independent experts who have categorically confirmed that water, dust and cyanide issues can be responsibly managed at the Amulsar project...We outlined the systems and processes that have been put in place to ensure responsible environmental stewardship in our earlier response to PAEF. These are set out in detail in our publicly-available environmental and social impact assessment (available here), which addresses many of the points set out in the PAEF paper and was prepared by independent experts in accordance with international standards...Water that has contact with the mine’s infrastructure will only be discharged if it has been treated and/or tested and found to be in compliance with Armenian standards. There will be an extensive water monitoring programme throughout the life cycle of the mine to ensure that the scenarios contemplated in the PAEF statement cannot occur.
