Gold is illegally mined in Aksy district of Jalal-Abad region. The State Inspectorate for Environmental and Technical Safety made a decision to prohibit the activities of Spektr LLC.

Despite the ban, the company continues exploration on the alluvial gold deposit.

The committee set up an interdepartmental commission, which will study the development of the alluvial gold deposit in Aksy district. Officials intend to visit the site and sort it out.
