Albanian Chrome Mine at Risk of Collapse

Albania’s chrome mine in Bulqiza is at risk of collapse due to a prolonged interruption of maintenance as a result of a hunger strike staged inside the mine by its workers, Albania’s Ministry of Economy said in a press release.

The Ministry also warned of a potential risk from gas poisoning since the ventilation system has also been interrupted. Meanwhile, the health of the striking miners is deteriorating as their hunger strike entered its 15th day on Monday. A meeting between the concession company operating the mine and the striking miners scheduled for Monday failed, local media reports.
