According to Bloomberg agency “China National Group Corporation signed framework agreement with Polyus Gold International Ltd. To cooperate on development of gold and nonferrous metal resources. Under the agreement, the two parties will carry out in-depth cooperation in such fields as development of mineral resources, technology exchanges, as well as materials supply.”
