VANCOUVER – Gemcom Software International has announced the opening of a new office in Almaty, Kazakhstan, on June 24, 2011. The new bureau will make mining software solutions readily available to customers in central Asia.
Central Asia is experiencing growth in mining as it is rich in natural resources. Kazakhstan, for example, according to some estimates, holds the world’s second largest uranium, chromium, lead and zinc reserves, as well as significant manganese, copper, iron and gold reserves. It also contains central Asia’s largest recoverable coal reserves, and is an exporter of diamonds. Elsewhere in the region, Uzbekistan ranks as one of the world’s top 10 gold producers.
