We rendered full legal support to Zhetysu Wolfram LLP, carrying out mining operations on the Boguty deposit and producing the highest quality tungsten concentrate. The production capacity of the deposit is about 2,238 thousand tons of ore a year. The main investor in the project is Jiaxin International Resources Investment Limited, a large Chinese mining and investment company.

The Kazakhstan Subsoil Use Code requires subsoil users to procure works related to mining operations through open tender procedures. In this regard, our Team provided full legal assistance to the Client with holding procurement tenders, in particular for the procurement of works for the field development, including drilling and blasting operations. We drafted tender documentation for the works procurement and the contract to be signed with contractors in accordance with the Kazakhstan legislation. We also provided ongoing legal support on various issues, arising during procurement procedures.
Kazakhstan is the 9th largest country in the world with vast mineral resources. The Project has been strategically important as it contributes to the country's economy development. The total reserve of estimated tungsten trioxide in Kazakhstan is 2 million tonnes, and the Boguty deposit is one of the largest.
The Project involved creating internal procurement mechanisms for the Client from scratch. Violation of the procurement procedures by subsoil users may lead to disqualification of the works, services, and goods procured from the programme. Eventually, these will not be counted as the fulfilment of the subsoil user commitments under the relevant contract, which in turn may result in a subsoil use contract termination by the Kazakhstan Government. Unicase provided the fullest support to the Client to drive any noncompliance with the procurement rules out and to make certain everything went smooth.
