Ulba plant is going to develop its own field in the Aktobe region

Ust-Kamenogorsk. May 5. KazTAG - The Ulba Metallurgical Plant is going to develop its own deposit in the Aktobe region, reports the press service of NAC Kazatomprom JSC.
“A subsidiary of Kazatomprom, JSC Ulba Metallurgical Plant (UMZ), received a license for exploration of solid minerals at the Upper Irgiz field in the Aktobe region,” reads the report.
