LOCATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE
The location of the Group’s assets in Kazakhstan gives access to power, water, an established rail transport network and a skilled workforce.
Bozshakol and Aktogay also benefit from low strip ratios of 0.7 and 0.2 respectively and efficient labour, with only 1,500 employees required at each site.
FOCUSED ON COPPER
After disposing of non-core assets and restructuring the Group in 2014, KAZ Minerals is now focused on copper mining.
The outlook for the copper price is positive as supply is restricted whilst growth in demand is being driven by the power, infrastructure, transport, consumer goods and clean energy sectors.
