GV Gold and Government of Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) signed the cooperation agreement

GV Gold (Vysochaishy, PJSC) and the Government of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) signed the agreement on long-term cooperation in the area of social and economic development.

The agreement is signed by GV Gold CEO German Pikhoya and the Head of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) Aysen Nikolaev within the framework of the “Far East Days” exhibition which took place in Moscow on December 13-15.

In the course of the meeting, the parties discussed the results of the Company’s activity within the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) in the Oimyakon and Aldan Areas as well as the trends for further cooperation aimed at development of the economics, preservation of the environment, growth of the employment and welfare of the population in the region at the optimum utilization of the GV Gold’s production potential.

— Taryn Mine, one of the largest mining enterprises in the Oimyakon Area, is the GV Gold Group’s leader in gold production. The enterprise is located next to the Pole of Cold of Russia — not too many companies in the world operate in the extreme conditions like that. Signing of the social and economic partnership agreements with the region has become a good tradition for us. The Company assists the Republic in achievement of the social objectives it set for itself. And it would be extremely difficult to solve the issues we face without the assistance of the government of the region. GV Gold is a one of the major taxpayers and it always tries to establish the relations with the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) and the Oimyakon Area on the trust-based and mutually-beneficial terms, — noted German Pikhoya.​
