Pavlodar region occupies one of the leading places in the mineral resource complex of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

More than a third of Kazakhstan's coal reserves are concentrated in the Pavlodar region. The largest of the fields are Ekibastuzskoye and Maikubenskoye, which store, respectively, 10.5 billion and 2.2 billion tons of energy raw materials. Nine other fields with a total coal reserve of about three billion tons are also promising for development.

The peculiarity of most of these deposits is that the coal lies in them shallowly, sometimes its layers go directly to the surface of the earth. Because of this, mining is done in an open way. During the first half-century of development of the Ekibastuz basin, more than 2 billion tons of coal were produced.

The largest copper-porphyry Deposit "Bozshakol"has been prepared for development. Ores here lie close to the surface of the earth and contain in industrial concentration not only copper, but also molybdenum, silver, and other valuable metals. The total reserves of copper in all fields are three and a half million tons.

Almost 150 tons of estimated reserves of gold deposits, which in addition to this precious metal, also contain silver, copper, zinc, barite. These metals are extracted mainly (about 300 thousand tons of ore per year, from which 300 kilograms of gold, five tons of silver and 500 tons of zinc are smelted at the Maikain Deposit.

Cobalt deposits are estimated at 14 thousand tons, Nickel-251 thousand tons, manganese-70 thousand tons. The most important feature of the ore reserves of the region is their multi-component composition: in addition to the main named metals, they contain molybdenum, beryllium, indium, thallium, gallium, cadmium, germanium, selenium, tellurium, etc.

Deposits of malachite and turquoise were found in the region. Some experts believe that there are real prerequisites for the detection of technical and jewelry diamonds.

There are no open oil and gas fields in Pavlodar Priirtyshye, however, almost half of the region's territory is occupied by the Priirtyshskaya depression, which geologists consider promising for huge reserves of hydrocarbon raw materials. Projected oil resources are estimated at 315 million tons, and gas at 148 billion cubic meters.

There are 89 deposits of so-called common minerals in the region: these are raw materials for the production of various construction materials, for the needs of industry and for other purposes. For example, the Karasor Deposit of molding Sands is the largest in the CIS. Approximately 700 million tons of the most valuable raw materials are stored by the Sukhanov Deposit of kaolin (white-burning) fire-resistant clays.
