The Ministry of Industry and Infrastructure Development of Kazakhstan announced on the day of the “Miners’ Day” that the coal industry has always been one of the most important resource industries in Kazakhstan.
Kazakhstan is one of the countries with the largest coal reserves in the world, and its proven coal reserves rank among the top ten in the world.90% of Kazakhstan’s coal reserves are concentrated in the north (Pavlodar region) and central (Karaganda region). Since independence, Kazakhstan’s cumulative coal output has exceeded 2.6 billion tons, and its cumulative export volume has reached 700 million tons.
At present, the coal industry guarantees 70% of Kazakhstan’s electricity supply and 100% of its coking production, and can meet the fuel needs of public utilities and residents. Kazakhstan is implementing the “2019-2021 coal sector development roadmap” and the “2019-2020 public utilities and residential coal demand plan.”
Kazakhstan has a great demand for high capacity coal washing equipment. lzzg has many years of experience in manufacturing coal screening equipment and coal washing equipment, and hopes to provide help for more coal companies.

Most of the coal fields are located in Karaganda Oblast (Karaganda, Eskibastuz and Shubarkori coal fields) in central Kazakhstan and Pavlodar Oblast (Turgai Coal Field) in the north. Among them, Karaganda coal field reserves 9.3 billion tons, Turgai coal field 5.8 billion tons, and Akbatuz coal field 12.7 billion tons. The main producing areas of bituminous coal in Kazakhstan are Karaganda coal field, Ekibastuz coal field, etc.; the main producing areas of lignite are Turgai coal field and Maikubian coal field. At present, it is these 5-6 large coal fields and main producing areas that guarantee the coal supply of the entire Kazakhstan and dominate the coal market in Kazakhstan.
