Attracting investment to junior mining companies via Astana International Exchange

The current situation on Kazakhstani and regional mining provides for favorable conditions for creation of a Junior Mining segment on Astana International Exchange. The opportunities offered by AIX enhanced by geographical proximity to key natural resources locations and capital, as well as Kazakhstan’s own rich mineral fields base make for a perfect match with the high risk and high return nature of the junior mining business. Arman will go through some of the best world practices, key features and parameters of the upcoming AIX Junior mining segment as well as plans on developing the national Junior mining market.
