“We are happy to be able to announce the start of commissioning activities at the Aktogay sulphide concentrator and a further reduction of US$100 million in the project budget,” KAZ CEO Oleg Novachuk said. “We are now focused on ramping up production at Aktogay and Bozshakol to deliver industry-leading copper production growth.”
