16 July 2012, Yerevan


GeoProMining («GPM» or the “Company”), a diversified international mining group is involved in the construction of a church in the town of Ararat, in the vicinity of which the GPM’s Ararat gold processing plant is located.

The construction of the “St. Amenaprkich” church (St. Saviour) began in December 2011, and in summer 2012 the ceremony of laying the symbolic foundation stone of the future church took place. Overall, the project is estimated at 165 million drams. At this stage GeoProMining and the City of Ararat city hall have contributed 20 million drams each. The church is scheduled for completion in autumn 2014.

“We value people and human resources above all. So we continue investing money into social programs aimed at supporting residents of communities, in which we operate, as well as in education and training of new personnel. Moreover, we pay great importance to moral and social health of society, and therefore recognize the need for a church in the town of Ararat, “- said General Director of GPM Gold Vladimir Kozlov.

“The city of Ararat has a number of unresolved social problems. GeoProMining is one of the few companies who support both the economy of the community and the social sector. Its programmes are diverse ranging from the support of sanitation of the city to the immediate concern for the spiritual life of the citizens of our community. A need for churches in the city is considerable, because, growing in the Soviet period as a major industrial center, Ararat did not have churches, “- said the Mayor of Ararat Abraham Babayan.
