New technologies have allowed the Bozshakol ore mining and processing enterprise to increase performance efficiency and reduce costs. In addition, the digital trabsofrmation of the company contributed to the increase in production capacity. Last year the plant exceeded the plan. Instead of 42 million tonnes, 44 million tonnes of rock was processed here.

FYODOR KRAVCHENKO, DIRECTOR, BOZSHAKOL COPPER DEPOSIT:

- Today the depth of the quarry is 90 meters. In the end, the quarry will be 350 meters deep and 8 kilometers long. Today the quarry is 1.5 kilometers long.

Local mining technology for copper concentrate is one of the unique in the country. The mining mass is transported by the trucks weighing140 tonnes. Then the mass is crushed and conveyed to the concentrator by the conveyor. The concentrate is already extracted. This technology is not only innovative, but also energy efficient.

SERGEI LEU, DIRECTOR, BOZSHAKOL MINING AND PROCESSING ENTERPRISE:

- All processes are run by programs which means everything is fully automated in the enrichment sector. The risk of mistakes by humans is reduced by 90%. All the enrichment complex is controlled by only 5 to 6 people from the main control panel. The rest of the population is mainly engaged in maintenance and planning.

The output of the mining and processing enterprise has been export-oriented by nearly 90%. The products are going to be exported both to the near and far abroad countries.

SERGEI LEU, DIRECTOR, BOZSHAKOL MINING AND PROCESSING ENTERPRISE:

- Our finished products are copper and molybdenum concentrates. They are supplied to various countries, such as Russia and China. We also export our products to Balkhash. Our deposit is copper-molybdenum. Gold and silver are the accompanying useful elements, which are also extracted in the process.

According to the calculations of specialists, the development of the quarry is planned for another 40 years. Mineral resources of the field exceed 1 billion tonnes of minerals.
