The Mongolian Project
The little town of Nalaikh stretchs about fifty kilometers away from the Mongolian capital, Ulaanbaatar.
It is from there that come from tons of coal supplying the stoves of almost all the households of the metropolis’ ger districts. The coal, main responsible for the air pollution in the city is also the main source of income of the residents of Nalaikh as hundreds of them go down into the depths of the earth to extract the precious ore.
