Geologists calculated how much Kyrgyzstan might get from the development of deposits, Duishenbek Kamchybekov, the First Deputy Chairman of the Association of Miners and Geologists, reported.
According to him, Issyk-Kul region may receive $9.4 billion from development of deposits, Talas – $1.5 billion, Chui – $1.8 billion, and Jalal-Abad – $9.2 billion.
“Batken region is a god-forgotten region, backward area, but there are minerals worth $38.4 billion. These deposits are not equal in importance to Kumtor and Jerooy. The reserves of Naryn region are estimated at $32.5 billion,” said Duishenbek Kamchybekov.
He added that the total possible profit was $83.3 billion.
“To get this money, it is necessary to develop geology, improve legislation, work with the population. Discontent of local residents can be resolved with the help of a social package, and work must be started only after obtaining justifications and conclusions,” explained Duishenbek Kamchybekov.
