'Mine stripping will be conducted in 2nd half of 2013,' said 'Teghout' PLC board member Ruben Papoyan to the Hetq in Tehgout. 

According to him, at present 71 ha out of 357 ha planned has been cut down for mining. The company has sent letters to Agriculture and Nature Protection Ministries asking for a permit to cut down another 26 ha of forest. 

Hamlet Titanyan, who supervises mine stripping, thinks that they will reach mine ores after digging about 20-30 meters. Under him, explosions for mine stripping will launch in 3-4 months.
