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.
