The Republic of Uzbekistan has a powerful ¿¡ÑÓá½ý¡«-raw-material base and the big prospects
of its(her) increase, has real opportunities for rise of
a national economy due to the further escalating the reconnoitered stocks and extraction of minerals.
It is revealed more than 2700 deposits and displays of various minerals
more than 100, from them more than 60 are already used in a national economy.
It is reconnoitered 940 deposits, including 165 - petroleum, gas and a condensate; 3-coals;
46 - precious metals; 36 - color, rare and jet metals;
17 - mining, 9 - mountain - chemical and 21 камнесамоцветного raw material; 495 -
building materials of various purpose(assignment), 151 deposit of underground waters
of хозяйственно-drinking, industrial and balneological application.
Only 45 % of the reconnoitered objects are involved in improvement. Investigation of
new deposits of iron, вермикулита is conducted, searches of
nonconventional kinds for republic of mineral raw material are conducted with the purpose of replacement of
minerals imported from another(others) republics
local, the hydromineral raw material is studied as one
reception from sources of useful components.
On a number of the major minerals, such as gold, uranium, медь, natural
gas, tungsten, potash salts, phosphorites, каолины the Republic of Uzbekistan on the
confirmed stocks and prospects of their increase borrows(occupies) conducting places not only in the
countries of the CIS, but also in the world.
The reconnoitered stocks of minerals are estimated more than billion US
dollars, and the general(common) ¿¡ÑÓá½ý¡«-raw potential about 3,5 billion US dollars.
Now it is extracted while from bowels of mineral raw material on 200 million dollars.
In economy of Uzbekistan extraction and processing of minerals borrows(occupies) one
of conducting places, renders the big influence on development of a national economy.
On the basis of the reconnoitered stocks, now in republic operates more
than 440 нефтегазопромыслов, mines, mines(shafts), карьеров, factories, etc., 380 water-fences,
balneological clinics and factories on pouring dining rooms, лечебно - dining
rooms and medical waters.
In a total national product of republic the share of a mining and processing
complex makes about one third.
On stocks of gold of Uzbekistan borrows(occupies) 4 place, and on a level of his(its) extraction - 7
in the world; on stocks of uranium - 7 - 8-places, and on his(its) extractions - 4-; on stocks меди
- 10-place. There are significant stocks of natural gas, silver, lithium, fluor
spar, phosphorites, feldspar etc.
The present-day condition of preparatory stocks of mineral raw material not
only provides steady work of working mining complexes, but
also allows essentially to increase and again to organize extraction of a lot of
the major minerals - gold, uranium, меди, lead, zinc, silver, lithium, phosphorites,
potash salts, fluor spar, волластонита etc.
In total under 14 working both prepared mining and prospecting
projects foreign investments more than 1,3 billion US
dollars from which it is already realized 265 million US dollars are expected.
Recently special interest arises to development of a deposit of
potash salts as raw material for manufacture бесхлорных potash fertilizers.
The deposit of rare alkaline metals (lithium, rubidium,
caesium) on which the original without waste technology of
processing of ores is developed is rather perspective.
Significant stocks of the mining raw material used in mountain
and nonferrous metallurgy, the electrotechnical, abrasive, fire-resistant, фарфорово-faience
industry, mountain - chemical manufacture of phosphoric and potash fertilizers,
агроруд (in a natural kind) and others are prepared.
The Republic has advanced culture of the mining industry, a
favorable infrastructure in the areas offered to investment of objects. Many deposits
can be fulfilled by an open, cheapest way. There are technologies
of processing of the mineral raw material, allowing to receive high extraction of
useful components. Made production is competitive and has the constant market.
The low cost price of made production provides high efficiency
of capital investments in comparison with similar projects of the next states.
The main guarantors of protection of investments in the mining industry of
a Republic of Uzbekistan
Are political and economic stability in the country and presence of
the legislative base providing a favorable mode for activity of foreign investors.
