ULAN-UDE, December 29 (Itar-Tass) —— The miners from two major gold mining enterprises in Buryatia, who were evacuated from the shafts after a strong earthquake in Tuva, resumed working. “The permission for the resumption of works was given in the evening on December 28,” a source in the main emergency situation department in the Russian Republic of Buryatia told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
The goldmines are situated on the East Sayanians in the Okinsky district of Buryatia. The westernmost municipality of the republic borders Tuva. The epicentre of the Tuva earthquake was nested 200 kilometres northwest of the border between Buryatia and Tuva. Right after the tremors the goldmines in Buryatia were suspended. Some 212 miners were evacuated from the goldmines. “The settlements in the Okinsky district of Buryatia did not happen to be in a 50-kilometre zone of the earthquake,” the source said.
