Drilling at South mine at the Zhezkazgan Complex


At KAZ Minerals, our vision is clear: to be the leading natural resources company in Central Asia. Achieving this means always striving for the highest standards, delivering value for shareholders, and doing our best for our employees, communities and the environment. Our strategy encompasses three main areas:

Delivering growth projects

We aim to increase our copper production with the ramp up Bozshakol and Aktogay over the next two years.

Optimising our existing assets

Our ongoin optimisation programmes seek to improve the performance and efficiency of all our assets and operations. We aim to reduce costs, increase yields, improve productivity and create value for our shareholders.

Acquiring natural resources

We will continue to seek out attractive undeveloped natural resources, principally in the Central Asia region to maintain our long term project pipeline.

Delivering a strategy for future growth

Our strategy is reviewed by the Board annually. The risk management framework and key performance indicators are intended to assist the implementation of the strategy and are kept under regular review. Our overall aim is to develop KAZ Minerals into the leading natural resources company in Central Asia, for the benefit of all our stakeholders.
