In the period between 1997 and 2007, as a result of
International cooperation led to a successful implementation of the project titled «Geology, geodynamics, minerogenics of transborder sedimentary basins and ore regions of Central Asia».
Over the entire period, Kazakhstan has been conducting
As part of the execution of the order of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan, geological survey of military test sites has been completed, revealing new promising fields for possible extraction of gold, copper, silver, lead, zinc, molybdenum, nickel, iron, rare metals.
Over the recent years of geological exploration efforts in Kazakhstan, space remote sensing data have been widely utilized. Data from space allowed to undertake
Breakthroughs in science and technology are widely used in geological exploration in Kazakhstan. Applied research in geology is undertaken in a number of principal areas. Over the last 10 years, reserves of most important kinds of mineral resources have been estimated, and geological exploration efforts have received information and methodology support. Among the documents drafted is guidelines for organizing and conducting additional geological survey at the scale of 1:200000 in the Republic of Kazakhstan, guidlines for organizing and undertaking deep geological mapping at the scale of 1:200000, methodological guidelines for geological and minerogenic mapping at the scale of 1:200000, methodological recommendations for securing
Kazakhstan conducts technical development of drilling equipment, machines, wall shaft telemetric assessment equipment. Development and field testing completed for a drilling machine for well drilling in
Significant efforts are made to study the deep subsoil structures of individual regions of the country. Trends identified using geological, geophysical, geochemical data, allowed to enhance the resource potential of the Kokshetau region, Kalbanarym structural/metallogenic zone,
Geological service of Kazakhstan initiated the efforts toward compiling a set of maps at the scale of 1:2500000. International projects involve 11 countries of Central Asia and Middle East. Republic of Kazakhstan acts as the project coordinator. Almanac contains 73 maps, reflecting the geological structure of the Eurasian region.
