A delegation of state authorities, led by First Deputy Prime Minister Roman Sklyar, paid a visit to the Bestobe deposit. The purpose of the visit was to oversee the ongoing efforts to resume underground mining operations, as outlined in the developed roadmap.
According to the latest reports, the process of pumping water out of the mine has been in progress since August 21 of this year. As of now, a substantial amount of 225,000 cubic meters of water has been successfully removed from the mine. It is estimated that approximately 1.3 million cubic meters of water still remain to be pumped out.
A dedicated team of 417 individuals has been diligently working on this task. Additionally, every effort is being made to secure alternative employment opportunities for the mine’s employees during this period.
With the significant progress made thus far, it is expected that the mine’s operations will resume in the near future. The Ministry of Industry and Infrastructure Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan is closely monitoring this matter, ensuring its special supervision.
