On Time – On Target

Copper, Gold, Lithium in Central Asia

Minerals To Power The Global Green Energy And Technology Transformation

Our Activities

“Rising demand for electric vehicles, grid infrastructure and data centers for AI and other energy intensive technologies has driven demand for the minerals IG Asia is developing in its project portfolio. 

Copper, in particular, requires billions in investment over the next decade to fulfill the world supply needs. 

IG Asia’s team is among the greatest copper exploration and technical teams with decades of combined, world-wide experience and multiple discoveries, exploration medals and project development expertise. 

Central Asian countries of Kazakhstan and Mongolia are known jurisdictions to the IG Asia team, and were chosen for their favorable geology and legal framework for successful mineral exploration and development.



IG Asia’s flagship Pribrezhniy porphyry copper deposit (>1Mt contained copper) is located in one of the most prolific copper porphyry belts in the Republic of Kazakhstan, with a scoping level engineering analysis performed by Rio Tinto Exploration. The project has significant potential to increase mineral inventory and for a robust early cash-flow oxide project, with established infrastructure in an active copper mining district for a low-cost operation. Pribrezhniy Project Information.

In record time, the IG team has built a project pipeline of critical minerals, copper, gold and lithium in one of the most promising and sought after emerging markets for natural resources and a top 10 country worldwide for mineral reserves.



IG Asia owns a 100% interest in the TN-5 copper-gold-molybdenum porphyry system  on the same structural trend that controls the emplacement of the world famous Oyu Tolgoi deposit currently majority owned by mining giant, Rio Tinto. TN5 Project Information.

Mongolia is a successful and investment-friendly mining jurisdiction.  A fast growing economy,  Its low cost, low tax jurisdiction and vast mineral potential make it ideal for exploration and discovery of world class deposits.



Experienced explorers, we are poised to move quickly to secure high value mineral assets in prime geological settings; we execute efficient, focused and strategic exploration and development for lasting value creation.


Discover and develop critical minerals to deliver high multiple returns to stakeholders.


IG Asia was founded in 2021 to focus on the exploration and discovery of world class deposits in the mineral rich Central Asia Region.

Thomas E. Bowens, its founder and principal of IG Global Group, winner of discovery awards for: 

–  Malmyzh Copper-Gold porphyry Deposit (7.2 million tons copper equivalent metal) under the IG Copper banner;

– Svetloye Epithermal Gold Deposit (1.3Moz of gold);

– Trixie Mine reopening in the historic poly-metallic East Tintic District in Utah (the highest grade gold producing mine in 2021 @ 56.6g/t Au) under IG Tintic.   

Thomas E. Bowens set up  IG Asia in order to explore and discover in a region with vast mineral discovery potential and a modern foreign investment framework.  

As an active player in Kazakhstan and Mongolia  with already existing pipeline of highly prospective assets in lithium, copper and gold – we can’t wait to explore and discover more.
