The mineral exploration and mining industry is one of the top priority sectors of the Kyrgyz economy. Kalikova & Associates (K&A) has extensive experience in advising mining clients on all aspects of mineral prospecting, exploration, mining, marketing and processing, as well as related environmental protection issues.
We offer services well beyond the limits of traditional contracts for mineral exploration and mining.

Our unique approach is based on offering practical solutions to our clients, taking into account legal, political, socio-economic, tax and regulatory matters faced by this industry in the Kyrgyz Republic.
We represent not only mining companies but also financial institutions and investors, service providers and other participants in the mineral exploration and mining industry.
The lawyers of the Mining & Exploration Practice Group at K&A monitor the developments in the mining industry, including legislative changes, which can affect our clients’ businesses. We take an active part in the work of the mining association and attend specialized training sessions.
