Kazakhmys awaits review at ENRC


Kazakhmys expressed concern about the corporate-governance issues at its fellow Central Asian miner ENRC yesterday as it posted higher earnings for the half year to June.

The group, which owns 26 per cent of its FTSE 100-listed compatriot, said underlying earnings had climbed to $1.6bn (£1bn) from $1.34bn last year.

Against the backdrop of ENRC's corporate-governance review, Kazakhmys chief executive, Oleg Novachuk, said: "Of course we are concerned about the problems of corporate governance in ENRC. We should wait until the corporate-governance review comes out and then we will see what we can do."
