Concession receipts in 2009 totalled nearly 32 million leva, said the government information service on Wednesday. The Economy, Energy and Tourism Ministry had been managing 125 concessions by December 31, 2009.
They have been awarded for the extraction of metal ores and non-metal fossils, rock material, oil and gas, and fossil fuels.
The government adopted Wednesday the 2009 annual reports of the commission for control of concessions for extraction of subsurface resources under the Economy, Energy and Tourism Minister.
Eight new concessions were awarded in 2009, one for the extraction of metal ores and seven for the extraction of industrial minerals.
No legal action was taken against noncompliant concessionaires.
