In a bid to enhance cooperation in the field of geology and natural resource extraction, Kazakhstan announces plans to establish a technical committee comprising domestic and foreign geologists, as reported by the press service of the Prime Minister of the republic. Vice Prime Minister of Kazakhstan, Serik Zhumangarin, engaged in discussions with Afghan counterparts to pave the way for future collaboration. Notably, representatives from Kazakhstani companies such as “Kazakhmys Barlau” and ERG Exploration were also involved in the deliberations.

Afghanistan’s subsoil is renowned for its wealth in iron and non-ferrous ores, coal, and rare earth minerals. Additionally, the country boasts significant hydrocarbon reserves. It is anticipated that the potential partnership will soon provide Kazakh specialists with maps highlighting prospective areas and documents verifying the presence of mineral resources.
