In the territory of the East Kazakhstan region, a large number of explored deposits are known as minerals with reserves that meet the region's needs for mineral resources: non-ferrous metals (Ridder-Sokolnoye, Tishinskoe, Maleevskoye, Nikolaevskoye, Artemyevskoye, Oryolovskoye, etc.), gold (Bakyrchikskoye , Suzdal, Misek, placers of the Kurchum River and others), rare metals (Bakenoe, Belaya Gora, Yubileynoe, Akhmetkino), coal and oil shale (Karazhira, Kendyrlykskoe, Bobrovsko-Belokamenskoe), non-metallic materials (refractory cheese e, expanded clay and bentonite clay, limestone, and cement loam brick, glass raw materials and building materials), and ground mineral and drinking water (Oskemen, Leninogorsk, Bogatyrevskoe, Kuludzhunskoe).

Currently, for most of the mineral deposits, domestic and foreign investors have been issued licenses and contracts for geological exploration and production. Ridder-Sokolnoye, Tishinskoye, Maleevskoye and Shubinskoye deposits are operated by mining enterprises of Kazzinc LLP. Deposits Orlovskoye, Irtyshskoye, Artemyevskoye, Aktogayskoye are owned by KAZ Minerals Group enterprises.
