The 2018 Congress will be marked by three anniversary dates: 60 years since the foundation of the WMC, 25th Anniversary WMC and the 20th Anniversary of Astana city.

Kazakhstan is one of the top ten aluminum miners in the world, it ranks third in iron ore reserves among the CIS countries, in uranium mining is second only to Australia, it is firmly in the list of countries rich in copper ores. Annually in the country it is extracted over 100 million tons of coal. The products of MMC enterprises are exported to Japan, South Korea, the USA, Canada, Russia, China and the EU countries.

June 2018 is marked by a number of events with a global significance for the mining and metallurgical industry due the 25th Jubilee World Mining Congress (WMC) which will take place in the city of Astana from June 19th through June 22nd.

This year, the organizing committee of the contest has made a decision to extend the row of the nominations up to 13 categories. Such change has been caused by the fact that annually over 150 nominees take part in the competition, and 2017 had an unprecedented count of 190 entries.

As a result of the extended list of the nominations, the contest is rising to a new level of the maturity. Thus, one of the most recent categories – “The Best Foreign Partner” – is helping the organizers to expand the geography of the potential participants by bringing in abroad companies and organizations.

Kazakhstan is standing on the verge of the new era of the adoption of emerging technologies, innovations and digitization in the mining and metallurgical sector, and it is beyond any doubt that the Golden Hephaestus Award does not stay on the sidelines. For this very reason, the previous nomination “The Best Energy-Saving Solution” has been replaced with “The Best Digital Solution in the Mining and Metallurgical Sector” established by Eurasian Resources Group (ERG).
