During the last 100 years the territory of Kyrgyzstan served for the Czar Russia at the beginning and later the USSR as one of the major mineral and raw materials base (radium, uranium and rear earth elements). First findings of radioactive uranium–radium minerals in the mountains (Ferghan valley) occurred at the same time as in Kuri couple at the end of XIX century (Aleshin and others, 2000). Similar minerals were found in Teo – Moyunsky mine which is located 30 km on the South – West from Osh city (Fig.1)
