The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) released a report this week detailing how Russia’s mining industry is currently suffering from the consequences of a massive data mining campaign, which includes a massive effort to destroy its mining data.
The USGS, in its report, details how the Russian mining industry has been forced to “tear down its own data” to ensure it does not receive an unfair price for its products.
Russia’s Mining Industry Association (MIVA) and other organizations that control the Russian Mining industry have claimed that they have no right to use the data in the first place, and have demanded that all the data be destroyed.
The report states that the mining industry “cannot continue to exploit the mining data that was created by the mining companies themselves,” and says that the data “has been used for the purposes of illegal mining activity.”
The report notes that the Russian industry “has not made public the precise number of data miners have used for illegal activities and has not explained how it obtained such data in a legal manner.”
The USGs findings come after a massive Russian data mining effort, dubbed the “Big Six,” which the mining company mining company Big Six is accused of participating in.
The “Big 6” campaign began with a series of targeted campaigns that were coordinated by Big Six and the Mining Industry Federation of Russia (MIFA), which was founded in 2013.
MIFA was tasked with coordinating a massive mining data mining operation that was conducted in the U.K. and the U,C.S., and included a massive operation in Belarus, Ukraine, and Georgia, among other countries.
According to the report, MIFA used a database of mining data from U.N. bodies, NGOs, and other groups to “deceive the public” and “destroy” its mining industry data.
“As the mining and mining-related industries are heavily affected by this data, MISA’s continued use of this data threatens to undermine the integrity of the data mining industry,” the report states.
The mining industry’s data has been destroyed by MIFA, but the Russian government is still attempting to make up for the lost data.
In a statement released this week, MGAV spokesperson Nikolai Kuznetsov said that “The MGA is not aware of any legal authority that has authorized this massive data destruction.
The destruction of mining-data data is illegal and must stop.”
The mining sector’s “Data Protection and Security” department has said that the “mining industry is not the owner of this mining data, nor is it in any way obliged to comply with the demands of the Mining Federation of Moscow.”
The MGA also noted that “the mining industry does not have any legal recourse for the data that it has been deleted or destroyed.”
government and MIFA have claimed “no legal authority to destroy mining data,” and MGA spokesperson Nikolay Gorbachev has also claimed that the government is not “responsible” for the destruction of data.
