[www.inewsguyana.com]The Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment’s Environmental Protection Agency is currently monitoring the tailings and pond discharge of Bosai Minerals Group Guyana Incorporated (BMGGI) in Linden which has increased reportedly by heavy rainfall last Thursday.

According to the Environment Ministry, while the dam remains intact, the management of Bosai Minerals Group Guyana Incorporated has since diverted the normal discharge course over a longer area to allow for natural filtration before reaching where it is normally allowed to discharge to settle before entering Kara Kara Creek.

It was noted that this measure has resulted in the Kara Kara Creek showing signs of turbid tailings flow. As such, the Environmental Protection Agency has recommended that Bosai Minerals Group Guyana Incorporated cease discharge from its wash plant until the measures which include completing the diversion path, building a dyke, and strengthen the overflow before restarting discharge.
