About Mes Aynak

Mes Aynak, Located at a crossroad of cultures and civilizations, Afghanistan possesses a unique and vast cultural heritage. Due to its geographical location and geology, the country also boasts an abundance of natural resources, which often go hand in hand with its cultural wealth. One example of this close relationship between the two can be found in Mes Aynak, a vast archaeological area dating back at least 2000 years, sitting on the world’s second largest copper deposit 40 km southwest of Kabul, in Logar Province.
