Oyu Tolgoi tailings pond P1020261 (3)
The Oyu Tolgoi tailings pond
In March 2013, New Internationalist magazine carried an article on mining in Mongolia, including information about the Oyu Tolgoi project – but it did not mention that activity at the mine is controlled and operated by British-based mining multinational Rio Tinto, which has a history of involvement in projects associated with environmental destruction and abuse of workers’ rights, indigenous peoples’ rights and human rights in general. London Mining Network has been working with a coalition of organizations to support traditional herders badly affected by the project.
