The Borov Dol copper mine is a socially and ecologically responsible company that strives to take measures to reduce the impact of its operations on the environment. The company prioritizes sustainable development, including the rational use of natural resources, environmental protection, and conservation of biodiversity.
Borov Dol is committed to preserving biodiversity in its concession area surrounding the mine.
On June 23-24, 2020, special birdhouses (artificial nests) were installed around the Borov Dol concession area. This measure will help overcome underlying causes of biodiversity loss or possible changes to the birds’ nesting territories.
Artificial nests, as one of the compensatory measures, were placed at ten locations around the mine’s concession area. The nests were installed on medium and low-voltage transmission lines by the expert team of EVN Macedonia in the villages of Novo Selo and Brest, in the settlement Damjan near the building of the old Damjan mine, and on the fields between Damjan and the Shtip-Strumica regional road.
“Our company strives to sustainably use natural resources, taking appropriate actions with the aid of applicable technologies. By carrying out this activity, we strive to preserve biodiversity in the surrounding area and improve the ecological conditions around the Borov Dol mine,” said Pavel Krivinsky, General Manager of Borov Dol.
