    Local residents are facing off against a mining company over access to the mineral-rich Artvin Cerattepe natural reserve Twenty years ago a Canadian company was forced to sell its mining license after locals in the area protested.

    They are now determined to resist a second company, the Artvin Copper Company, insistent on digging up the ground in Artvin Cerattepe for gold. A demonstration is scheduled for 4th November, which will emphasise the importance of the environment over gold.
