The Republic of Tajikistan takes leading place in reserves of lead and zinc in Central Asia. Industrial stocks mineralization is hosted in skarn which is confined mainly to the secant contacts of granitic dikes in carbonate sediments, as well as a significant scale of stockworks and hydrothermal veins in propylitized volcanic rocks of the Central Upper Karamazar. Significant prospects for base metals are associated with the southern Fergana depression framing, where clastic- carbonate sediments of the Devonian is expected to have large stratiform deposits.
More than 90 % of proven reserves of these metals are concentrated in Karamazarskiy mining district. It is sufficient to note that only the fields and Big Konimansur Altyntopkanskiy ore field was explored more than one billion tons of lead- zinc ore, most of which can be practiced openly. In these ores, except for lead, zinc, silver, bismuth, cadmium in recoverable quantities is still a number of valuable co-products.
