In 1997, Azerbaijan signed a contract providing for the development of six fields: one in Nakhchivan, two in the Gadabay region of Azerbaijan (450 km west of Baku) and three in Kelbajar and Zangelan, currently occupied by the Armenian armed forces. Azerbaijan’s share in the contract is 51%, Anglo Asian Mining PLC – 49%.

According to the contract, a total of 400 tons of gold is planned to be extracted from these 6 deposits.

The extraction of the first gold began in 2009 from the Gadabay deposit, the extraction of silver – in 2010. Gold mining began at Gosha in the third quarter of 2013. In the summer of 2015, the company also commissioned the Gadir gold mine, and in September 2017, the Ugur mine.
