The Mongolian government imposed a 12-month ban on the issuing of licenses for mineral exploration.

“The ban is part of the government’s efforts to create responsible mining,” the government’s press office said in a statement, adding that there were currently 2,889 active mining licenses.

A 40-member working group led by Mongolian Deputy Prime Minister Ulziisaikhan Enkhtuvshin will carefully examine all active licenses in the next 100 days, the statement said.
