Tajik gold deposits to be mined by China’s TBEA

 TBEATajik gold deposits: The Tebian Electric Apparatus Stock Company Limited (TBEA), one of the largest electrical manufacturing groups in China, is to be awarded a license to develop one of two gold deposits in Tajikistan in return for the construction of a new combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Dushanbe. According to the head of Tajikistan’s Geology Department Murod Hol Jumazoda, TBEA will be given permission to mine either the Duoba or Upper Kumarg fields in the north of the country, both of which it has been exploring since 2013. TBEA has already constructed the Dushanbe-2 CHP plant and has now been asked to speed up the commissioning of a second 50MW unit. Times of Central Asia
