Who we are
Established in 1930 and focused on copper production, Kazakhmys PLC is among the world's leading natural resources groups. Our operations are based primarily in Kazakhstan, Central Asia, and our shares are listed in London, Kazakhstan and Hong Kong.
Delivering growth and value
We plan to increase our copper production with the commencement of our Major Growth Projects. At every step, we aim to deliver value, not volume. In August 2014 our shareholders approved a major restructuring of the Group which should be completed by the end of the year.
Respecting our people and communities
Kazakhmys is one of Kazakhstan's largest companies. With this economic strength comes a corporate responsibility to protect and respect our employees, their families and and the local environment. It is all part of our commitment to those that matter most: our people and the communities in which we operate.
Focused on Copper
The demand for copper is growing. Copper is one of the key metals of modern economic development, found in nearly every new apartment or office block, vehicle and electrical appliance. It is one of the best heat and electricity conductors, is resistant to corrosion and is present in various alloys. Over the medium term supply remains constrained, and the outlook for copper is positive.
Understanding our business
Kazakhmys is the largest copper producer in Kazakhstan and one of the leading global copper producers. We had a market capitalisation of $1.9 billion as at 31 December 2013. Kazakhmys listed in London in October 2005 and our shares can be traded in London, Hong Kong and Almaty.
