On July 9, 2007, the Turkish State Council granted an injunction closing the Kisladag mine near the city of Usak in Turkey. The injunction will be in place until a decision is reached on the legality of the mine's Environmental Impact Assessment (EIS).
In granting the injunction, the court found that continuing operation of the open pit heap-leach mine, which has been in operation for over a year, would cause "irreparable harm".
