Base Metals Mining in Kazakhstan to 2020

Synopsis

Timetric's 'Base Metals Mining in Kazakhstan to 2020' report comprehensively covers Kazakhstan's reserves of base metals (copper and zinc), reserves by country, the historic and forecast data on copper and zinc (base metals) mine production, copper and zinc metal prices, copper ore and zinc concentrate production by oblast (geographical region/province), historic and forecast data on refined copper and zinc metal consumption and ores and concentrates exports and copper and zinc exports by country.

The report also includes factors affecting demand for base metals (copper and zinc), profiles of major base metal producing companies and information on the active, exploration and development copper and zinc projects.

The Fiscal Regime section provides information about the country’s regulatory authority, laws, licenses and other fiscal regime information such as taxes, rates and other charges applicable to the mining of the commodity in the country.

It is an essential tool for companies active in Kazakh mining, and for new competitors considering entering the industry.

Summary

Mining has traditionally been an important industry for Kazakhstan’s economy, with coal and copper being the two key commodities although zinc and other commodities are also significant. As of January 2015, Kazakhstan, with 6 million tonnes (Mt) of copper and 10Mt of zinc, had the world’s 13th and seventh largest copper and zinc reserves respectively.

Scope

The report contains an overview of the Kazakh base metals (copper and zinc) mining industry together with the key factors affecting the industry and demand for the commodities.

It also provides information about reserves, historic and forecast data on copper and zinc mine production, base metal consumption, ores and concentrates exports, the competitive landscape and active, exploration and development copper and zinc projects.

    Reasons To Buy

    Gain an understanding of the Kazakh base metals mining industry, its reserves, historic and forecast data on copper and zinc (base metals) mine production, historic and forecast domestic copper and zinc metal consumption, ores and concentrates exports, demand drivers, active, exploration and development base metal projects, the competitive landscape and the country's fiscal regime.
      Key Highlights
      • The East Kazakhstan and Karaganda regions have some of the country’s significant copper deposits, such as the Yubileyno-Snegirikhinsky and Zhezkazgan mines, the latter having a total ore reserve base of 239.5Mt, with 0.6% copper grade at the end of 2013.
      • Zinc reserves are mainly located in eastern and central Kazakhstan. Zinc is predominantly extracted from pyrite-polymetallic deposits from the Altai ore basin, developed by Kazzinc Ltd.
      • In 2014, Kazakhstan’s zinc mine (or metal content in the ore) production was an estimated 425,899t, down by 1.9% over 2013. This was due to a fall in production at the country’s largest zinc producer, Kazzinc Ltd: the company produced 7.8% less than in 2013.
