BKS Webinar: Kazakhstan and the UK - Critical Minerals - Matching Requirements

The British-Kazakh Society in cooperation with the UK Department for Business and Trade hosted a mining group webinar. The event will be chaired by David Skeels (BKS, Director). At this webinar we explored the current situation in the critical minerals sectors in Kazakhstan and where it is heading to. Moreover, we also discussed the UK industry progress with critical minerals in the recent years. We had a presentation from KazAtomProm to hear on their initiatives in the rare earth elements sector. Lastly, we had an assessment from British Geological Survey of the critical minerals sphere.
