For the eleventh time in the Autumn 2021, Nur-Sultan will host the Landmark Event for the Central Asia Mining & Processing Industry – the Astana Mining & Metallurgy – AMM 2021 Congress in the usual offline format.

Over 2 days, between October 20-21, international industry experts and CEOs of the largest companies, businessmen and specialists will discuss the key issues of the mining and metallurgy industry and its development prospects.

Over the years, the AMM Congress has proven to be an effective platform for showcasing contemporary scientific and practical activities, and has become the place for business communication of mining and metallurgical professionals from around the world.

The AMM Congress has brought real benefits to the development of Kazakhstan’s Mining and Metallurgical Sector, providing an opportunity to implement fresh solutions by sharing experiences, best practices and ideas in mining and processing digitalization, improving the efficiency of production processes in the mining and metallurgical complex, replenishing the mineral resource base, in legal regulation and, most importantly, in attracting foreign investment to the actively developing domestic industry.

The importance and efficiency of the Congress for the Mining and Metallurgy Business is proved by the fact that for 11 years it has been organized entirely at the expense of participants – leading industry players, whose number has been growing every year, reflecting their interest in the event.

Every year the AMM Exhibition presents the latest technologies and innovative developments for companies in the mining and metallurgy industry.

The highlight of 2021 Congress will be “The growth trends of the global mining industry in a pandemic environment”. The program will include presentation sessions on new technologies and digital solutions, teleconference with Ministers of the countries on exploration and investment attractiveness, master-classes on development of new competencies in Industry 4.0, round table on robotics, forums on gold and coal industries, educational master-classes on GR, PR topics and an investment platform.

Within the Congress, traditionally there will be meetings at a high level of the Government, qualitative business-partnerships and real contracts as well as plans for state purchases of the largest companies of the Mining & Metallurgical Complex. The relevance of the topics chosen confirms the current events and development trends of Kazakhstan’s mining and metallurgical industry in the new reality.

The future of Kazakhstan’s Mining and Metallurgical Industry lies within investments to exploration, use of the most advanced digital solutions, development of quality human resources, and implementation of new technologies in mining. The high-quality content of the program and the discussion format of the event enable the industry’s issues to be exposed to the fullest extent and solutions to be found.

The annual Golden Hephaestus Competition, where a competent jury represented by leading mining and metallurgical experts in 14 categories recognizes the best of the best in the mining and metallurgical sector, traditionally takes place in the days of the AMM.
