Gadabay (Azerbaijani: Gədəbəy; Russian: Гедабек, Гедабекский район, Gadabek; more common traditional Russian spelling Кедабек, Кедабекский район, Kedabek) is a rayon of Azerbaijan renowned for its potatoes and its gold fields. The famous Siemens company worked here in the Tsarist era claiming that they were exporting copper. However it has been recently revealed that in fact they were actually secretly exporting gold. The gold mining operation has recently resumed[1]

Gadabay and the rayon of Tovuz surround Artsvashen, an exclave of Armenia which has been controlled by Azerbaijan since its capture during the Nagorno-Karabakh War.
