New Code on Subsoil and Subsoil Use for mining companies
On 27 December 2017, Kazakhstan adopted a new Code on Subsoil and Subsoil Use for mining companies (the “Code”) to come into force six months after its official publication[1]. The Code will replace the current Law on Subsoil and Subsoil Use dated 24 June 2010 save for a limited number of provisions applicable to those subsoil users that will keep their subsoil use contracts without transitioning to relevant subsoil use licences.
