Kazakhstan is the largest uranium producing country in the world, accounting for 40% of the global uranium supply in the 2017. In addition, due to their geological characteristics, the majority of uranium deposits in Kazakhstan are ISR conducive, meaning Kazakhstan accounts for approximately two-thirds of the total global reserves suitable for ISR extraction.
In 2017, Kazatomprom was the largest uranium producing company globally, with its attributable production accounting for 20% of the total global primary uranium production. We have maintained our share in the global uranium production at the level of at least 20% since 2011.
