The Republic of Kazakhstan is rich in mineral resources. The region has numerous deposits of ferrous, nonferrous and precious metals. This is why industrial enterprises are aimed at metal mining. Non-ferrous metallurgy takes about 12% of the whole industrial production of the country. Kazakhstan is one of the world’s leading precious metals mining countries.

It’s a unique territory that has the largest silver ores diversity. Taking into account Kazakhstan’s mineral richness and favorable business conditions, investing in precious metals mining is a perspective direction allowing reaching high profitability.
