16:47 September 17, 2014
EcoLur:  SEE VIDEO BELOW Hermine Poghosyan, Expert at the National Assembly Standing Committee on Agriculture and Environment, stated that “Mego Gold” LC is implementing illegal activities. She made this statement at the public hearings on Tukhmanuk gold mine project held in Meliq Vellage, Aragatsotn Region, on 10 September. Hermine Poghosyan: The National Assembly Standing Committee on Agriculture and Environment is very interested in this issue. We have applied to competent bodies many times expecting expert opinions on the information and any other additional information. You don’t have an expert opinion for open pit mining. The opinion you have is issued for closed mining. We have an official letter that you don’t have the opinion of the expertise for open pit mining, i.e. your activities are illegal. “Mego Gold” LLC Director Ashot Poghosyan: As you attended the project discussion, which already has legal force, I should say that it was submitted to the competent body on 11 September 2012. Let’s consider that you were inattentive and you didn’t see it. Hermine Poghosyan: We applied to the Ministry in 2013. Ashot Poghosyan: You didn’t enquire us at ll. Hermine Poghosyan: Do you think that the ministry provided us with incorrect information? Ashot Poghosyan: I don’t think so and it’s not true for 100% that the standing committee of the National Assembly is involved in the secret investigation, I don’t believe you. Karine Movsisyan, Chief Expert at “Environmental Expertise” SNCO of Nature Protection Ministry: In 2006 an opinion was issued, which entitled “Mego Gold” LLC to carry out geoprospecting for two years to make a conclusion about reserves etc. Afterwards they should have submitted closed mining project. That is, our opinion issued in 2006 for open pit mining was valid for two years, then they should proceed to closed mining. Then our administration stated that the company didn’t submit us any project till 2013. This is the situation.

Clear and Apparent Fraud at GBGD and Toukhmanuk Gold Mine

On July 5, 2013, GBGD and Mr. Van Krikorian (President and CEO) signed a deal with Linne Mining to act as the CONTRACT MINER for the development of its Toukhmanuk Gold Mine, in Armenia.
By November 2015, Van Krikorian announced in its SEC quarterly filings (10-Q), that the Toukhmanuk project was delayed because the contract miner "requested" to be relieved of its obligations under the mining contractagreement.

To this date, Van Krikorian has failed to post a copy of Linne Mining's letter or provide any clarification to investors, why Linne Mining requested to be "relieved" of it obligations. 

Three months later, the reason for Linne Mining's actions have started to become crystal clear. Linne has been swindled by Van Krikorian and GBGD. There is no gold worth mining at the Toukhmanuk Gold Mine. Here is the proof.

Two documents, which were prepared for Linne Mining, surfaced on the web last week. These two documents outline that the database provided by GBGD and…


That's what Mr. Van Z. Krikorian said to me and my brother (John Mavridis) in October 2010 while we were trying to resolve the dispute between Global Gold and Caldera.  Little did I know that he was serious and that his scheme was already put in place weeks before!

Mr. Van Z. Krikorian, the Corporate Counsel of Global Gold Corporation, authorized his lawyer in Armenia Mr. Hrayr Ghukassyan, to file a criminal complaint against me for theft and fraud on September 15, 2010, for allegedly stealing the shares of Marjan Mining Company.

Below is the signed complaint filed by Global Gold Mining, the subsidiary of Global Gold Corporation (GBGD) that was filed with the Prosecutor of Yerevan City, Mr. Badalyan.
