Operations

Overview

Anglo Asian Mining PLC's main operations span three contract areas in Azerbaijan covering 1,062 square kilometres.

  • Gedabek – the site of the Company's main open pit mine and also Gadir, a co-located underground mine.
  • Gosha – where the Company is operating a small, high grade mine.
  • Ordubad – an early stage gold and copper exploration property located in the Nakhchivan region of Azerbaijan.
