EuroChem launches phosphate ore production plant in Kazakhstan

MOSCOW, RUSSIA/KARATAU, KAZAKHSTAN: EuroChem, a top ten fertilizer company globally, announced the launch of phosphate ore production at the Kok-Jon phosphate rock deposit in the Jambyl region, Kazakhstan. The EuroChem project in Kazakhstan has already produced around 20 thousand metric tonne of phosphate ore, which has been shipped to the adjacent storage facility. Total production is expected to amount to over 150 kilo metric tonne of phosphate ore by the end of the year.

The Company plans to reach a steady production level of up to 650 kilometric tonne per year in 2016 following the full commissioning of the Phase I programme. EuroChem also plans to further ramp up the project to 1.5 million metric tonne per year as it aims to construct a fertilizer complex in the region. The Company has already invested around $75 million in the project.

“We are pleased with the early results of our Kazakhstan project and this new mine at the Kok-Jon phosphate rock deposit. The first product from the mining operations is being realized just a few months after we started developing the deposit. This is a testament to the professional team and dedicated leadership that we have assigned to these operations. The project continues on schedule with the planned ramp-up of the production capacity,” said Clark Bailey, Mining Director, EuroChem.
