The annual MINEX Forum in Kazakhstan, held since 2010, attracts key stakeholders including ministry heads, international organizations, domestic and foreign mining firms, technology and consultancy enterprises, financial institutions, stock exchanges, investors, universities, and industry associations. The forthcoming April forum anticipates over 100 speakers and approximately 400 attendees from Kazakhstan and 30 countries across Europe, North and Latin America, South Africa, Australia, China, India, Mongolia, Malaysia, and New Zealand. This year’s event is poised to witness a record influx of foreign investors keen on exploring and developing precious metals, copper, coal, lithium, and uranium, as well as rare and rare-earth metal deposits, marking a historic milestone for the forum.


Within the MINEX Forum framework, discussions will cover mining and metallurgical industry development, along with the Kazakh government’s “Kazcontent 2.0” initiative aimed at boosting indigenous industries. Special emphasis will be placed on attracting investment for the state-initiated extensive geological exploration program to exploit new deposits of critical minerals, as announced in President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev’s Address to the Nation of Kazakhstan. Additionally, the DigiTech conference on 18th April, integrated into the forum, will showcase Industry 4.0 solutions empowering mining firms to enhance performance and gain competitive edges.
