The metals and other minerals mining industry has been tasked with achieving 40% growth by the end of the decade. The National Development Plan of Kazakhstan, scheduled until 2029, was published on the portal “Open Regulatory Legal Acts” . Among the problems that hinder the development of the mining industry, the document notes such as the depletion of the mineral resource base, the high energy intensity of the industry with a probable energy shortage (leading to a decrease in the competitiveness of products), rising labor costs, etc. Despite significant mineral deposits, there are few deposits in the republic that are ready for development. The authorities fear that in the next 10–20 years the production of the main export metals: copper, chromium and iron will decrease significantly. In addition, the plan notes that the Republic of Kazakhstan is not realizing its potential for the production of nickel, cobalt, lithium, as well as other rare and rare earth metals.
