YEREVAN (ArmInfo)—The Statue of Liberty is made of Armenian copper, according to the president of a US mining company that owns the Akhtala Ore Mining and Processing Works in Armenia.
Metal Prince President Serob Ter-Pogosian said he has documentary proof that the statue, located on New York’s Liberty Island, was constructed from copper extract from the Akhtala deposit in Armenia’s northern region of Lori.
