Currently Rio Tinto intends to invest more than $ 100 million into geological exploration in 14 countries around the world, where the company works, including Kazakhstan.
The plans of the state-owned holding company Rosgeologiya to occupy a significant place in the shelf development are under threat.
In the past 3 years the company invested 4 bln roubles into geological exploration.
In the framework of the official visit of the Kazakhstani President to Japan on November 8th there was a meeting of the Minister for Investment and Development of Kazakhstan Zhenis Kasymbek and cha
In 2016 Alrosa plans to keep investment into geological exploration at the level of 2015 – 7 bln roubles, the Vie-President R. Gizatullin said.
Urantsvetmet is a partner in the exploration projects of Norilsk Nickel, Alrosa, Polyus and other large and not very large Russian mining companies.
The amount of financing of exploration works should be increased in 2017. This was stated by the head of the Ministry of Natural Resources Sergei Donskoy.
In the coming years, Kazakhstan expects private investment in the amount of 900 billion tenges in exploration, the website of the Prime Minister of Kazakhstan reports with reference to the Minister for Investment and Development of Kazakhstan Asset Issekeshev.
"The development of geological sector is a fundamental factor in the economic development of the country. (...) Today, on the exploration program, which is implemented in Kazakhstan from 2015 to 2019, 120 billion tenges are allocated from the budget. We expect that at the expense of private investment 900 billion tenges more will be invested,"- he said.
Krasnoyarsk enterprise of Rosgeologiya assessed the resources of perspective for gold and copper object in TuvaEdited by Rhod Mackenzie / 2016-02-12 03:26:31
JSC Krasnoyarskgeolsyomka (in the structure of Rosgeologiya) has completed the execution of the state contract or geological additional study o the Kyzyl site located in the Kyzyl, Piy-Khemsky, Tandinsky and Kaa-Khemsky districts of the Republic of Tuva. The works have been held since 2013. Tyvanedra ordered the works. The area of the studied site is 5,132 sq km.
In the framework of the project research works, laboratory works, geochemical sampling were held, sediments of the Ulug-Khemsky coal basin were studied, the geophysical and geochemical basis were prepared and tested.
The borders of the Tannoulsko-Ulugousky gold-polymetallic minerogenic and Kalbaksky coper-molybdenum ore areas and the Tapsa –Kaakhemsky alluvial gold area were specified. Within the borders of the latter the Terektigsky golden ore hub and Ondumsky ore zone were separated. The first object was issued a passport with the assessment of forecast P1 copper and gold resources - 1.7 mln tons and 33 tons respectively.
On the results of the geochemical survey at the Kyzyl site, 7 anomalous geochemical fields of golden ore were discovered, forecast P3 resources of copper, zinc, silver were assessed – 850 thousand tons, 500 thousand tons and 563 tons respectively.
The Siberian Federal University has developed a unique technology to search minerals on the basis of extraction of information from natural electromagnetic and seismic noise, the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation reports.
Scientists have found a way to significantly reduce material costs, which are required by the search for new mineral deposits. The new instrument will allow oil companies to reduce the costs for the development of platforms three times. The innovative technology is based on the principle of sound research of oil reservoirs.
