During a visit to Denver, Colorado, Minister of Industry and Construction of the Republic of Kazakhstan Kanat Sharlapaev took part in a roundtable discussion with Paul Johnson, president of Colorado School of Mines, representatives from the United States Geological Survey (USGS), Colorado Mining Association, and leading experts from the American scientific community specializing in geology, QazMonitor reports citing the Ministry’s press service.

During the roundtable, Kanat Sharlapaev elaborated on the reforms underway in Kazakhstan's subsoil management sector. These reforms aim to enhance efficiency and environmental sustainability within the mining industry while also fostering a more favorable investment climate.

Kazakhstan plans to integrate artificial intelligence (AI) into geological exploration processes to improve the precision and efficiency of mineral discovery and extraction. The AI integration will involve geological data analysis, deposit exploration optimization, and related procedures. The Ministry expects it to boost the external market competitiveness of Kazakhstan's geological sector.

Members of the American scientific community supported Kazakhstan's goals and intend to collaborate, exchange best practices, and develop joint innovative projects with the country.

“This collaborative initiative between Kazakhstan and the US contributes to geological science and technology and opens new opportunities for both countries in natural resource exploration and utilization. Such endeavors promote sustainable development and technological advancement,” reported the Ministry.
