South Kazakhstan has a large number of hydrothermal deposits that produce barium sulfate. As a result of multilevel processes, barium becomes durable and sought-after material.
On the territory of Mangyshlak peninsula, located in West Kazakhstan, there is a deposit of barite sedimentary layer. Half-meter height stratums are located at a depth of up to 3 meters.
Badam field, located southeast of Shymkent, also has a rich reserve of barium sulfate. Here, the stock of raw materials extends to a depth of 200 meters from the surface. The mineral properties in this deposit are estimated as premium, and the content of barite in the ore is 20-55%.
