There are rich deposits of minerals in the region. Reserves of mineral raw materials on their variety, power of deposits, convenience of their development are unique and practically have no analogs in world Geology.

The main types of minerals are oil and gas. Most of the deposits are concentrated in the area of Novy Uzen and on the Buzachi Peninsula. On the territory of Mangistau region 59 oil and gas fields have been explored, including: Aksaz, Aktoty, Arystanovskoye.

Proven oil reserves in the region are more than 3 billion tons. In addition, the discovery of large oil reserves on the shelf of the Caspian sea off the coast of the region is predicted.

Five manifestations of brown coal are known in the region. A characteristic feature of the coals is the increased concentration of germanium up to 20 grams per ton, as well as other rare scattered elements, which makes it possible to classify these coals as promising in relation to the search for industrial deposits of these elements.


Mangyshlak Peninsula is one of the main regions of the world where a wide distribution of strontium has been established (the strontium content in the discovered ores averages about 20 %). The largest deposits are Aurtash, Unganisha, Accouche field.


In the mountainous part of Mangistau, manifestations of phosphorites and iron ores have been explored. There is also one manganese Deposit in the region, the proven reserves are about 2.7 million tons, the average manganese content is 12 %. There are also deposits of copper, table salt, mineral salts (mirabilite, tenardite), chalk (7 deposits).


Limestone-shell, which is used as a wall and facing material, is widely spread not only in the region but also abroad (about 30 deposits with total balance reserves of more than 200 million m3 have been explored). 7 chalk deposits with total approved reserves of over 10 million tons are known in the region. Chalk is widely used in construction, agriculture, for feeding animals and birds, preparation of paint, putty, drilling fluids, etc. purposes. The quality of chalk is characterized by the content of calcium carbonate from 95.1 to 98.7 %.
