On 2-3 June students of the Economic Governance and Development programme went to visit the Kumtor Gold Mine. Prior to the trip all students and guards had to go through required medical checkup and briefing for everyone to get acquainted with the rules. The trip started from Kumtor’s office with overnight stay in Tamga to be continued the next day early on with the actual visit. Students were excited to see the pit, the mining camp, recovery factory, the tail storage, as well as the Lake of Petrov. Overall students had the opportunity to observe and follow the full production process. The OSCE Academy would like to express its sincere gratitude to the Kumtor Gold Company for this unique chance and experience.
