Production(As of December 31, 2018)

2018 Q4 Update


Total 2018 production from Inkai was 6.9 million pounds (100% basis), an increase from 2017. While the production volume was in accordance with Kazatomproms’s planned 20% decrease to the licensed production profile under the terms of the subsoil use contract, the subsoil use contract called for higher production in 2018 compared to 2017. The subsoil use law in Kazakhstan allows producers to produce within 20% (above or below) of their licensed capacity in a year.
