Strike Halts Centerra Gold’s Kumtor Kyrgyz Mine


  0 forum post

BISHKEK (Reuters) – Around 1,400 workers at Centerra Gold’s flagship mine in Kyrgyzstan went on strike on Tuesday, a trade union leader said, halting production that contributes nearly 12% of GDP in the Central Asian republic.

Centerra Gold, owned 33% by the Kyrgyz state, announced the stoppage of the high-altitude Kumtor mine late on Monday. It gave no details about estimated output losses and said it was in talks with the union to resolve the dispute.
