Prime Mining and Exploration event for Kazakhstan and Central Asia in 2011

Prime Mining and Exploration event for Kazakhstan and Central Asia in 2011

With continuing global upward trends in the mining sector and soaring metal prices, international investors and miners are weighing opportunities for new business ventures in emerging economies which could offer good growth prospects and healthy returns. Kazakhstan and several mineral rich Central Asian countries with their untapped resources may soon become one of those “must be there” areas for global miners, investors and international service providers.

One of the key Mining & Exploration events in Central Asia which provides platform for the international investment and partnership dialogues is “MINEX Central Asia” Forum.

Presenting at the first “MINEX Central Asia 2010” Mining and Exploration Forum in March 2010 in Astana, Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Mr Karim Massimov spoke of emerging opportunities for international cooperation in the Mining and Metals sectors. Minister for Industry and Innovation Mr Aset Issekeshev presented the new program for Modernisation of Mining and Metals industry which will greatly improve Kazakhstan’s infrastructure and increase its metals output by over 50% by the year 2015.

The 2nd “MINEX Central Asia” Forum will be held on 5-7 April 2011 in Astana, Kazakhstan.

Over 500 local and international business delegates are expected to attend.

The forum is organised in close cooperation with over 30 national and international organisations. The forum’s multi-track agenda will focus on the key regulatory changes across Central Asia, e.g. practical implementation of Kazakhstan New Subsoil and Subsoil Use Legislation, forthcoming new subsoil legislation currently being prepared by Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan amongst other states. The forum will also examine changes in the extracting tax proposed in Kazakhstan. It will offer an in-depth insight into the key emerging mineral exploration opportunities in Central Asia and the Caspian States.

Technical program of the forum will concentrate on the key technological and management challenges in the mining sectors in Kazakhstan and Central Asia, e.g. opportunities for development of secondary mining (tailings); development of deposits with low grade ore; implementation of environment monitoring and safety systems; development of fully integrated mining and processing systems and much more.
