Kumtor Operating Company has decided to distribute 240 tonnes of Diesel fuel to the said two districts’ farmers at a reduced price of 28 soms per liter to grant numerous requests from the farmers who need Diesel fuel for the spring sowing campaign.
The fuel has been transferred to the district administrations with all taxes prepaid by the gold miner itself. Following due procedures, the fuel will be distributed to the farmers.
KOC President Robert Wunder said: “Due to the fact that fuel is not available for the spring planting, Kumtor decided that this timely assistance in the form of the Diesel fuel distributed to the community farmers will enable them to complete the spring sowing campaign effectively and in time. We believe this support to our neighbor communities is appropriate and will bring tangible benefits to the farmers.”
