Toronto, Canada, March 4, 2024 – Aurora Limited proudly convened the fifth annual Kazakhstan Day 2024, an esteemed event dedicated to celebrating Kazakhstan’s significant contributions to the mining sector and to spotlighting new investment opportunities within the country. The event, held in collaboration with industry leaders and government representatives, underscored Kazakhstan’s burgeoning potential in the global mining landscape.

The day commenced with an insightful welcome address from Kanat Sharlapayev, Minister of Industry and Construction of the Republic of Kazakhstan. Minister Sharlapayev illuminated the forward-looking prospects and strategic vision of Kazakhstan's mining sector, notably mentioning the adoption of a new mining code designed to be investor-friendly. He highlighted that exploration investments have shown a remarkable increase, with an influx of approximately $250 million in 2022 alone. Additionally, the Minister underscored ongoing efforts to refine legislation, specifically addressing the reduction of liquidation security requirements to further bolster investment appeal for development of the junior market in Kazakhstan.

In a pivotal address, Andres Blanco, the head of Xcalibur Smart Mapping, the leading airborne geophysics company, delved into the innovative pilot project in the Northern Balkhash area. This initiative, stemming from a Memorandum of Understanding with the National Geological Survey of Kazakhstan, involves a comprehensive regional airborne geophysical survey, embracing magnetic, radiometric, gravimetric and electromagnetic techniques, over the Northern Balkhash and the Kalbanarim rare-metal zone. The project aims to generate a modern, precompetitive geophysics dataset to entice private investment in Kazakhstan’s geological exploration endeavors.

A highlight of Kazakhstan Day 2024 was the premiere of “Northern Balkhash - The Next Copper Elephant”, a documentary presented by Lakeside Minerals and Trevor Wright. The film compellingly argues Kazakhstan’s potential to unearth world-class deposits, setting the stage for heightened global attention and investment.

The event also featured insights from C-level executives of RG Gold and Yer-Tai, sharing their successful navigation from exploration to active mining, underscoring the practical achievements and potential within Kazakhstan’s mining sector.

Said Sultanov from Aurora Limited offered a comprehensive overview of the exploration sector's progress, highlighting the increasing investments and the notable influx of global mining giants and junior mining companies into Kazakhstan. This trend points to a promising landscape for exploration opportunities, showcasing the country's burgeoning potential as a prime location for mining endeavors.

Sultanov also announced the creation of the Kazakhstan Chamber of Mines. This pivotal development aims to support and advocate for the interests of investors and exploration entities in Kazakhstan, further solidifying the nation's commitment to becoming a leading destination for mining investment and operations, especially for junior mining exploration companies looking to tap into the abundant opportunities within the region.


Aurora Limited expresses profound gratitude to all participants, organizers, and contributors for making Kazakhstan Day 2024 a monumental success. We reaffirm our commitment to providing comprehensive geological exploration services and continue to support foreign investors in harnessing Kazakhstan’s rich mining opportunities.

Kazakhstan Day at PDAC 2024 not only showcased the promising future of Kazakhstan's mining industry but also facilitated crucial meetings that underscore the depth of our commitment to global standards and partnerships.
