MEMORANDUM MINEX CENTRAL ASIA 2013 The 4th Mining and Exploration Forum 18/04/2013, Astana, Republic of Kazakhstan 

MINEX CENTRAL ASIA Forum is a platform for investors, industry and governments to frankly express views and opinions on the current state and future opportunities for the Mining sector in Central Asia. In the spirit of President Nazarbayev’s opening address there have been presentations and constructive discussions on a number of issues, which the industry is facing today. In summary of these discussions, the Forum acknowledges that:

  • the government of Kazakhstan has set out its intention to make changes to legislation to encourage investment and development of the Kazakhstan’s mining industry;
  • the government’s perception of the pace of changes is at odds with those of the mining companies and the investment community, who urgently need to see a faster change. The situation is further worsened by the reduced availability of investment due to the weakening of the global economy;
  • shortage of human capital remains a high risk for the future of the mining sector, however bold initiatives such as the creation of the School of Mines at the Nazarbayev University and the Geological Centre in Astana  are encouraging to see;
  • while the government has an intention to lift the Moratorium on the exploration licenses, the legislation still hasn’t been enacted;
  • lack of access to existing quality geological data is still the main barrier to exploration investment.
