The head of the so-called Geological Survey of unrecognized "Republic of Nagorno Karabakh" Gregory Gabrielyan in an interview with "News.am" said the goal of Geological Survey is to extend capacity of copper stock to one million tons.

According to him, the copper exploration is ongoing in 4 areas. The first area covers territories from Khachynchay water storage located in Agdam to Demirli deposit located in Agdere, Armenia calls this area “Kashen”.

Exploration of this large gold-copper-molybdenum deposit (Demirli deposit is already under exploration) is realized by Ltd "Base Metals", belonging to the group of companies "Vallex."

The head of the so-called Geological Survey of the separatist regime Gabrielyan Gregory said that the field Demirli contoured copper ore reserves in 2012 identified 56 million tons.

According to him, when reaching full capacity of annual production should reach 3.5 million tones containing 14-15 thousand tons of copper. The expected life of mine - about 15 years.

The second area is located around the mountain Dalidagh (renamed Tsrasar) at the junction of Kelbecer and Lachin regions of Azerbaijan. "Exploration carried out by our Geological Survey showed a very good result, here", - Gabrielyan said.

The separatist regime carries out searching of copper in the areas of occupied of Zangilan (renamed Kovsakan by Armenia) and Lachin (renamed Berdzor by Armenia) regions of Azerbaijan. "These areas are also interesting for us", - said Gabrielyan.

"One of the strategic objectives of our service is to study the dominant minerals, which may significantly affect the economic development of the country. Therefore, we have concentrated on the study of the forces as already known occurrences of copper, as well as those which we found ourselves"- Gregory Gabrielyan said.
