Natural uranium undergoes several processing and manufacturing stages before it can generate clean nuclear energy for the planet. Of those stages, uranium mining delivers the greatest overall economic value - and Kazatomprom is the world’s largest, low-cost producer and marketer of natural uranium.
Kazatomprom's competitive edge is underpinned not only by the exclusive use of the in-situ recovery (ISR) mining method, which offers an unparalleled structural cost advantage, with production flexibility and inherent environmental and safety benefits, but by a sales structure with geographic proximity to the fastest-growing nuclear electricity markets in the world.
Taken together, these advantages position the company to realize significant benefits from its leverage to rising uranium prices, whilst being highly resilient to adverse market movements.
The company's extensive asset portfolio comprises 14 uranium mining assets across 26 deposits in Kazakhstan, with the ability to significantly grow its resource base with relatively little capital investment.
As the National Atomic Company of Kazakhstan, Kazatomprom benefits from priority access to all uranium deposits in Kazakhstan, which is the largest, low-cost uranium producing country in the world.
