New approaches in the development of mining and metallurgical sector of Kazakhstan in the conditions of the existing realities will be determined at the 7th International Congress “Astana Mining & Metallurgy” AMM 2016, scheduled for June 15-16 in Astana.
The large-scale event will allow to establish new business connections, exchange experience with foreign colleagues as well as to attract foreign specialists and investors to our country.

On the main business platform of Kazakhstan in the sphere of MMC a number of important bilateral documents were signed. For example “Kazgeology” and “Korea Resources Corporation” agreed on joint projects on exploration of polymetals, as well as the agreement on joint exploration of base and precious metals was signed between “Kazgeology” JSC and “Ulmus Besshoky” LLP.
