Test site 3. Makmal - Conceptual site model
This section shows a conceptual site model (CSM) for the Makmal Gold mine, Kyrgyz Republic. The full report including detailed description of parameters can be retrieved here.
The aim is: i) to present the available information regarding known apparent environmental impacts; ii) to define the environmental setting that would influence the transport of contaminants from the source to the exposed individuals or environmental receptors, through identified potential exposure pathways; iii) to describe the source- pathway-receptor interactions using a CSM.
Examining the CSM results in the identification of data gaps and information needed for a full environmental assessment of mining of the Makmal ore deposit and provides the rational for EO selection.
