Further, on the quarry’s observation platform, the Prime Minister was shown the ore mining technology, and later at the ore processing plant, the Prime Minister was introduced to the technology of processing sulphide ore.
The Aktogay complex for producing copper from oxidized ore, which was launched in December 2016 by President Nursultan Nazarbayev within the framework of the Industrialization Day, has already been put into production capacity. By the end of this year, the volume of cathode copper production is planned to reach 20 thousand tonnes.
The Aktogay plant is a project of the KAZ Minerals Group, a large open-type mine located in the East Kazakhstan region near a village in Ayagoz district with the same name. It is one of the largest undeveloped copper deposits in the world. This is the largest industrial construction in the last fifty years.
