In his Address to the Oliy Majlis in January, the head of our state noted that certain fields of science would be attached priority significance every year to secure their advanced development. This year, geology was identified as one of such.
Four resolutions have been signed by the President on this front.
Toward their execution, the industry is undergoing modernization and digitalization, prospecting works are growing in scale and efficiency.
"New geology system is being created in Uzbekistan. The purpose sought is to cash in the natural resources for the good of the nation, create jobs and boost the wellbeing of people," Shavkat Mirziyoyev said.
Foundation has been instituted for the revival of geology as science and training of modern specialists. In particular, the University of Geological Science has been established to unite four research institutions.
Cutting-edge drilling and laboratory equipment was procured. As a result, the drilling works’ productivity have increased by quarter compared to the same period last year. In addition, the number of elements discovered in ore has grown from 40 to 63.
From the start of this year, 150 new deposits have been registered. The resources and reserves of gold, silver, uranium and copper are enhancing. In Kuljuktau and Auminzatau mountains in Bukhara and Navoi regions, 3 new gold deposits are discovered, along with 2 uranium ones in Kattakurgan district of Samarkand region and Arnasai district of Jizzakh region.
Apart from that, mining and geological data on 32 types of reserves have been transferred to JORC international standards.
Within the framework of efforts designed to bolster the agricultural sector, geological research based on express methods has been conducted on 155 thousand hectares of lands.
Water reserves with 90 thousand cubic meters extraction a day have been confirmed in water-scarcity districts.
Chairman of the State Committee on Geology and Mineral Resources presented report to the President.
The attraction of foreign investments towards the development of 20 new deposits was discussed during the presentation, through open and transparent procedures, by holding online bids.
The President gave directives on public-private partnership in this sphere.
The presentation also served to deliberate on next measures directed at uplifting the effectiveness of works in the sector, strengthen its normative base and boost its investment potential.
The head of our state gave concrete instructions to double the scale of geological prospecting next year, discover new prospective fields, accelerate the introduction of state-of-the-art laboratory equipment.
The State Committee on Geology and Mineral Resources has been tasked with the establishment of new prospecting on new fields on the basis of industrial cooperation, further expand the practice of transfering of works on the development of discovered deposits to the private sector.
Shavkat Mirziyoyev stressed the need to establish - building on the Namangan experience - constant geological expeditions, especially of hydrogeologival designation, in every region. Tasks were defined to elevate the effectiveness in the exploitation of underground soils granted for use and promote research works.
The President urged the officials in charge of the sphere to devise a roadmap for the implementation of the measures identified at the presentation.
