Convergence of Ideal Conditions

Kazakhstan
01 / INVITING
02 / UNTAPPED
03 / SECURE

Kazakhstan is a gateway between Europe and Asia, providing excellent routes to markets for the metals we intend to extract in the future. The country has a rich history of mining and well - established infrastructure, such as roads, railways, and smelters. It has among the lowest energy costs globally, low labour costs, and good access to technical expertise. However, very little exploration has taken place since the 1980s.

 

This is all changing, and Kazakhstan is open for business - with a new mining code based on Western Australia’s ‘first come, first serve’ principle, large areas available to peg - next to large mines - tax and legal certainty from the Astana International Finance Centre, high quality regional data and mapping available from historical exploration and very low utilisation of modern geophysics, opening up massive potential for discoveries under cover.

 

Several majors are active in-country, including Rio Tinto, Glencore, and Australia’s Fortescue.

 

The “Middle Corridor” critical transport route connects China and Europe through Kazakhstan and the EU and UK have MOUs with Kazakhstan for supply of critical minerals.

Strategy

East Star Resources is focused on the discovery and development of strategic minerals required for the energy revolution. We are applying modern geophysics, low detection limit assays, new geological models and other more recent analytical tools to make discoveries in rich but under explored mineral belts.

 

We also intend to further expand our licence portfolio in Kazakhstan. Our management are based permanently on the ground, supported by local expertise, and a joint venture with the state mining company.

 

Following successful drilling of our Verkhuba Copper Deposit in late 2022, we are working towards establishing a JORC-compliant resource. Follow-up drilling is planned with the purpose of progressing our open pit development concept through to a stage where economic feasibility can be demonstrated, and a mining licence application can begin.
