Metal production in the South Kyrgyz mines of the Ferghana Valley

Year: 2006 Author: Viktor Novikov, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
In the soviet period the industrial operations paid little attention to environment or public health, resulting in the accumulation of pollutants in the local environment. Because of their vulnerability to natural hazards, previous history of accidents, and their position along water courses and in the vicinity of towns and cities in transboundary areas, tailing dumps at both active and closed mining enterprises constitute an environmental as well as a security risk.
