Mongolian Copper Corporation officials requests negotiations with the government
Mongolian Copper Corporation requested holding discussions with the government about Erdenet Mining Corporation’s ownership. Chairman of Mongolian Copper Corporation M. Munkhbaatar said, “Under Resolution 23, issued by Parliament in 2017, Cabinet ordered that the state own Erdenet. Cabinet made several resolutions, but the court decided to cancel that decision two times, and Mongolian Copper Corporation's ownership was reinstated. Currently, court enforcement of state ownership of Erdenet has been ordered by the government, and as a result, its operations have been negatively affected, which sets a bad example for Mongolia's legislative development." Therefore, the company's officials have asked the government to take part in negotiations to reach an agreement meeting Mongolian laws and regulations as soon as possible.
