A mining company plans to start extracting silicate-nickel ores from the Jusalinskoye deposit in 2025. The licensed area is located in the Aktobe region, and the project documentation has been published on Kazakhstan’s Unified Environmental Portal.

The company plans to mine metals for 20 years. The reserves of the Jusalinskoye deposit were put on the state balance sheet in 2015 and amount to 44.2 thousand tons of nickel and 2.57 thousand tons of cobalt. Development will be carried out using open-pit mining due to the shallow occurrence of the components.

By the fourth year, it is planned to achieve maximum annual productivity of the quarry, with over 63 thousand tons of ore expected to be sent for processing annually.

The company “KazMetallGroup” previously announced a similar project and owns another nickel-cobalt deposit, Novo-Buranovskoye, in the same region. It is expected that the ore from both sites will be processed at a single mining and processing plant.
