Armenians extract nearly 3 tons of gold from the "Soyudlu" gold deposit in the occupied Azerbaijani region of Kalbajar every year.

As APA reports, more than 27 tons of gold have been extracted from the Soyudlu deposit since Kalbajar was occupied by Armenians. This gold deposit is on the borders of Armenia and Azerbaijan.

There are 112 tons of gold ore in the Azerbaijani part of this deposit. The chief engineer said Armenians are also exploiting "Gizilbulag" gold deposit in Kalbajar and "Vejnali" deposit in Zangilan.

The Azerbaijani side is going to bring an action against Canadian and Indian companies, which engaged in exploiting natural resources in the occupied Azerbaijani territories.
