The Ministry of Mines and Energy suspended the licences of 90 mining companies across Kampong Speu province for a week for failing to properly repair and water roads, tormenting residents with clouds of dust.
Yos Monirath, General Department of Mineral Resources director-general at the Ministry of Mines and Energy, warned that companies would have their licenses revoked if they failed to follow the ministry’s directives.
Firms failing to properly follow the ministry’s directives will be assigned an inspection team to further monitor their operations. After an initial one-week suspension, companies can be stripped of their licences and shut down.
