The company said in a statement that the licence agreement has been signed by the government, confirming approval for the plan to take stage one and two of the Chaarat project into production.
Specifically, the Tulkubash heap leach project has been approved for construction, and the stage two refractory deposit can be developed when appropriate.
Local environmental impact assessments and mitigation strategies have been approved, and the land allocations for the main operational and infrastructure facilities have been secured.
"Securing the approval of the Technical Project is another positive milestone in our path to putting the Tulkubash heap leach project into production,” said chief executive Robert Benbow.
“Our efforts are now fully directed towards completing the feasibility study and advancing to project construction.
“Our local team has worked hard to gain approval ahead of the Presidential elections in October.”
He, meanwhile, added: “We are also pleased to note the positive outcome to the long running dispute between the Kyrgyz government and Centerra relating to the Kumtor mine.
“This is an encouraging sign for all mining companies operating in the Kyrgyz Republic and their stakeholders.”
