LSE-listed Kaz Minerals has started testing and commissioning the sulphide concentrator at its long-life Aktogay mine in Kazakhstan, meanwhile confirming production guidance is to be announced in February. First saleable copper concentrate output is scheduled for the first quarter next year.
“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.”
