The objective of the activity of the Association of Legal Entities "Kyrgyz Mining Association" (ALE KMA) is to promote the work of subsoil users, starting from the stage of searching for an investment object in the mining sector of the Kyrgyz Republic and determining the optimal investment object prior to the exploration stage and subsequent development of mineral resource accumulations, up to the reclamation stage.
The ALE KMA was re-registered in 2016 on the basis of the Kyrgyz Mining Association which was established in 1996 and took an active part in the development and reform of the legislative base in the field of subsoil use, has a rich work experience and, most importantly, unites the intellectual resources of numerous members of the Association.

In addition, the Association participates in reforming and improving the legislative and regulatory framework for subsoil use to apply the best international practices in the Kyrgyz Republic.
The Kyrgyz Mining Association is the connecting tool of investors with state bodies, and also represents the common interests of subsoil use subjects in the Kyrgyz Republic. Memorandums on cooperation with the Jogorku Kenesh of the Kyrgyz Republic, with the State Committee for Industry, Energy and Subsoil Use of the Kyrgyz Republic (SCIES), with the associations of Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia were signed.
Under the guidance of the KMA, the Strategy for the Development of the Mining Industry for 2013-2035 was developed for the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic in 2013. KMA actively participates in the development of the Strategy for Sustainable Development of the Kyrgyz Republic (2017-2018), made a number of significant amendments to the Law on Subsoil.
The Kyrgyz Mining Association is making an active effort to become a full member of international group of independent expert organizations in the near future in the field of publication of reports on the results of the exploration and evaluation of CRIRSCO resources (tripartite Memorandum between CRIRSCO, SCIES, and KMA on 31 October 2017 in Jakarta has been signed). KMA initiated the establishment of the Kyrgyz Society of Subsoil Experts (KSSE, registered in April 2017), initiates the development of the Mining Code and a number of regulatory documents.http://www.kyrminas.kg/
