Kazakhstan uranium production forecast for 2013 through 2016

Kazakhstan has uranium reserves enough for 60-70 years at the maximum production level and 80-90 years at the current production without replenishment.

“In any scenario a production decrease may be expected in Kazakhstan after 2020, if no new fields are developed,” he said.

According to some forecasts, Kazakhstan has up to one fourth of the global uranium reserves at its territory. 20.9 thousand tons of uranium or 37 percent of the global volume was produced in Kazakhstan in 2012. Meanwhile, Kazakhstan plans to keep annually increasing production of this mineral.

Kazakhstan uranium production level is expected to reach
* 22,821 tons in 2013
* 24,019 tons in 2014
* 24,754 tons in 2015
* 25,602 tons in 2016
