Session 9


Digital transformation of mining enterprises in Kazakhstan – new projects and opportunities


Industrial digitalisation is one of the top drivers of the economic development of Kazakhstan. According to official estimates, virtually all mining operations in the country have a 10-15 percent potential to improve efficiency and reduce the cost of operations. At the small and medium-sized enterprises, this potential is 50% or greater. Many mining companies have developed digital transformation strategies and are exploring the possibilities of introducing 4.0 technologies to improve the efficiency of individual productions and supply chains. Digital technologies enable to streamline business processes and increase the overall return on investment. There are many areas for the use of digital technologies, however, the maximum effect can be achieved only in the case of a comprehensive implementation of information systems - a complete digital transformation of the individual companies and the whole industry.

Discussion themes

• Prospects for the digital transformation of the mining industry of Kazakhstan.
• Strategies and examples of digitalisation of mining and metallurgical enterprises.
• Prospects for the development of digital mines and autonomous production complexes.
