Unlocking Kazakhstans' Copper Potential

Kazakhstan has incredible opportunities for most major copper play types. East Star has projects prospective for three of these, being VMS, porphyry and sediment hosted copper. By methodically using a first principals exploration approach, we are de-risking belt scale exploration in some of these highly prospective regions to increase exploration success.
