Mihajlovic: Blasting in Majdanpek in order to prevent landslides, remediation was ordered by the inspection
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Mining and Energy, prof. Zorana Mihajlovic, PhD, stated that the blasting above the settlement in Majdanpek was part of the rehabilitation of the rock ordered by the inspection, because the safety of the citizens was endangered, considering that there was a possibility of a landslide.
"Security is endangered because there is a threat of landslides due to cracks that have appeared, which is the result of works from the previous period." The inspection ordered "Zijin" to take measures of remediation, which is carried out, among other things, by blasting, in order to prevent the mountain from collapsing. It is not about any kind of exploitation and destruction, but on the contrary, about preserving security. What was needed was for the company and the local self-government to inform the citizens about the works, so that everyone could get information on when and why the blasting will take place, "said Mihajlovic as a guest on TV Prva.
