Geological exploration

Kazakhstan have the largest uranium reserves in the world.

Kazakhstan is one of the largest countries in the world in terms of uranium reserves and resources.

The first commercial deposit in the country (Kordai) was discovered in 1951. The most important discoveries were made later at the late 60s in Shu-Sarysu and Syrdarya provinces of the Turkestan and Kyzylorda regions of Kazakhstan.

With these discoveries, Kazakhstan has become a world leader in proven uranium reserves suitable for mining through the in-situ recovery.

Deposits of uranium, discovered in the territory of Kazakhstan, are different in terms of form and practical value. In common geological positions, genetic traits and territorial isolation, deposits in Kazakhstan can be considered as part of the six uranium ore provinces: Shu-Sarysu, Syrdarya, North Kazakhstan, Pre-Caspian, Pre-Balkhash and Ili.

Currently, 14 deposits out of 56 known ones are in use, the remaining 42 are on standby.

The Company owns a unique resource base, which includes the world’s largest known and prospective uranium reserves. 100% of its reserve base is amenable to ISR.

Volkovgeology JSC, which is the successor of Volkovskaya Geological Expedition, that discovered Kordai field, provides geological support to Kazatomprom. It conducts test drilling of mining sites and geological exploration works for the Company.

The Company has unique competencies in the field of prospecting and exploring sandstone-type uranium deposits suitable for mining through the ISR method.
