Kazakhstan and Abitibi Geophysics, natural partners
With its subsoil rich in raw materials and minerals, Kazakhstan represents a remarkable potential for mining. Second-largest mining market in Central Asia, behind only Russia, Kazakhstan is the world's largest producer of uranium and contains the world's fifth-largest reserves of zinc. The country also holds large reserves of coal, copper, nickel, gold, silver and iron. It is not without good reason that the mining sector is linked to 30% of the country’s export revenues and 19% of its industrial workforce.
A presence in the field
Through its partnership with Nomad Geoservices (NGS), Abitibi Geophysics is active in the Kazakh mining market. As a leader in ground and borehole geophysical services, our company’s expertise is valued in this country, whose subsoils contain over 60 of the 105 elements in Mendeleev’s periodic table.
With its full range of geophysical services in the areas of acquisition, processing, modeling, inversion and interpretation of mining exploration data, Abitibi Geophysics is an active participant in the Kazakh mining sector. Innovation is at the heart of everything we do, and we contribute both carefully and enthusiastically to the evolution of equipment and technologies on Kazakhstan soil.
Performance and safety in the forefront
Abitibi Geophysics supports the development of the Kazakh mining sector using leading-edge upstream exploration technologies. The demands on production and performance are steadily increasing, and we are proud to contribute to the growth of Kazakhstan with new and better geophysical methods. A new mining code has made Kazakhstan more attractive to foreign mining companies.
The health and safety of our people and the protection of the environment are the central foci of Abitibi Geophysics’ business. The policies that we bring to Kazakhstan have been developed, audited and extensively implemented by our crews globally.
