7 April – Thursday

Given the vast areas of Kazakhstan, the effectiveness of geological forecasting and exploration largely depends on the use of advanced technologies, comprehensive analysis and the high competence of specialists. In Kazakhstan, a course has been taken to modernise the geological industry using innovative exploration methods. Modernisation of the industry is critically important for improving the quality of valuation of prospective areas and determining the best methods for their development and production. 

  • Modernisation of industry practices to improve the quality of mine valuation.
  • Development of technologies that allow real-time collection, processing and analysis of geological survey data.
  • Automation of routine manual work to improve quality and speed up processes.
  • Creation of continuous chains from the digital core, geological research data, seismic exploration, and regional and basin modelling to digital geological models.
  • Automating updates of geological models based on constantly incoming new data.
  • Application of Big Data and Data Mining technologies to improve the accuracy of planning and the speed of decision-making.
  • Improving the quality of field assessment and determining the best methods for their development and operation.
  • Computer simulation of drilling and blasting parameters to increase the profitability of production.

Kazakhstan, like other transit economies, faces unique opportunities in the digital economy. This will require a transformation in how businesses work to use digital technologies and data to create value. This also opens up opportunities for digital transformation through the use of new digital platforms and the application of business models to optimise the functioning of the various sectors of the economy and the allocation of resources.

  • Technological solutions of industrial automation and digitalisation to optimise production processes.
  • Digital projects in the mining industry: verification, visualization, automation of management; development of an automated system of technical service and repairs; geomechanical modelling of deposits;  creation of 3D models of the infrastructure assets, etc.
  • Use of Digital predictive technology to prevent failures and maintain repairs.
  • Software and computer-based models for forecasting and designing blasting operations in quarries.
  • A digital twin of mine transport systems.
  • The digital twin of the mining and processing enterprise.
  • Unified automated control systems for the mining and transport complex.

The key challenge facing Kazakhstan is the low reproduction of reserves. To accelerate the development of geological science and provide raw materials to the manufacturing industry in Kazakhstan, the National Geological Service was created and the National Geological Strategy for 2023-2027  was adopted by the Government. To facilitate access to geological information, an interdepartmental information system “KAZNEDRA” is being created. To address the issues and improve exploration efficiency the Industry will implement advanced information and digital technologies. 

  • New models of industry management based on the seamless movement of machine-readable data from the stages of exploration to production and processing.
  • Development of a single interdepartmental platform for subsoil use “Kaznedra”.
  • Creation and digitalisation of mineral core storage facilities.
  • Digital mapping of geological structures in Kazakhstan.
  • Using artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance the prediction and analysis of mineral resources.
  • Improvement of remote sensing and GIS-based mapping techniques.
  • Using machine learning algorithms to predict geological formations.
  • Integration of geophysical data with satellite imagery to improve survey accuracy.
  • Application of artificial intelligence technologies and drones to obtain images and data in hard-to-reach regions.
  • The use of digital technologies in the analysis and implementation of investment projects.
