 (As of 01.01.2024)

In accordance with the Decree of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan dated May 26, 2020 No. ПП-4731 “On additional measures to expand production of non-ferrous and precious metals at the deposits of Almalyk MMC JSC” a strategy for increasing of production of non-ferrous and precious metals is being implemented at Almalyk MMC.

As a result of this strategy, production will be achieved:

at the first stage (2021-2025), 300 thousand tons of copper cathode, 25 tons of gold and 176 tons of silver;

at the second stage (2024-2028), 400 thousand tons of copper cathode, 35 tons of gold and 220 tons of silver;

at the third stage (2026-2030), 500 thousand tons of copper cathode, 50 tons of gold and 300 tons of silver;


  1. For “Yoshlik I” deposit:

Work on the development of the field is carried out intensively, in two shifts.

To date, more than 1,743 workers and more than 400 pieces of equipment are working on the site.

The general designer Giprotsvetmet JSC has developed a feasibility study of the first stage of the project, approved by the Cabinet of Ministers. The working documentation is developed.

These works involved 531 construction workers and 79 units of special equipment.

To date, CCP-3 and its infrastructure facilities have employed a total of 11,088 specialists (excluding auxiliary personnel and personnel of the metalwork fabrication sections) and 1,280 units of special equipment.

  1. For power supply facilities:

A tender for construction of external power supply facilities at Yoshlik I deposit was held and a contract was signed with “Uzelektroapparat-Elektroshchit”. At present, 10 km of metal supports of 500 kV transmission line have been fully assembled, 7.5 km of wires have been laid, delivery of main equipment and installation works have been completed (100%), 7 500/110 transformers have been installed. The facility has been completed and put into operation.

And also, at the end of December 2023 on the facilities of substation TP-8, substation TP-9 and explosives plant, the act of commissioning of the facility was executed.
