SIBERIA (Web Desk) – Authorities in Siberia are planning to relocate the entire town of 500 people.
The authorities to start mining in its place after a gold deposit was found there, RT reported.
The deposit was discovered in 2014, but mining companies couldn’t get to the coveted money-making honey pot as it lies directly under the small town of Partizansk, in Russia’s Krasnoyarsk region.
