Notes to Editors

Kazakhmys PLC is the largest copper producer in Kazakhstan and one of the
leading copper producers in the world.  Kazakhmys is a fully integrated copper
producer from mining ore through to the production of finished copper cathode
and rod.  The Group produces significant volumes of other metals as by-products,
including zinc, silver and gold.  Existing operations include 20 open pit and
underground mines, 10 concentrators, two copper smelting and refining complexes,
a copper rod plant, a zinc plant and a precious metals refinery.  Production is
backed by a captive power supply and significant rail infrastructure.  Kazakhmys
also owns MKM, a copper products fabrication company in Germany, and has Gold
and Petroleum Divisions with assets in Kazakhstan and other parts of Central
Asia. The Group's strategic aim is to diversify and participate in the
development of the significant natural resource opportunities in Central Asia.


Under the provisions of Rule 8.3 of the Takeover Code (the 'Code'), 
if any person is, or becomes,'interested' (directly or indirectly) in 1% or more
of any class of 'relevant securities' of ENRC or of Kazakhmys, all 'dealings' 
in any 'relevant securities' of that company (including by means of an option in 
respect of, or a derivative referenced to, any such 'relevant securities') must 
be publicly disclosed by no later than 3.30 pm (London time) on the London 
business day following the date of the relevant transaction. This requirement 
will continue until the date on which the offer becomes, or is declared, 
unconditional as to acceptances, lapses or is otherwise withdrawn or on which 
the 'offer period' otherwise ends. If two or more persons act together pursuant 
to an agreement or understanding, whether formal or informal, to acquire an 
'interest' in 'relevant securities' of ENRC or of Kazakhmys, they will be deemed 
to be a single person for the purpose of Rule 8.3.

Under the provisions of Rule 8.1 of the Code, all 'dealings' in 'relevant 
securities' of ENRC or of Kazakhmys by ENRC or Kazakhmys, or by any of their 
respective 'associates', must be disclosed by no later than 12.00 noon 
(London time) on the London business day following the date of the relevant 

A disclosure table, giving details of the companies in whose 'relevant 
securities' 'dealings' should be disclosed, and the number of such securities 
in issue, can be found on the Takeover Panel's website at

'Interests in securities' arise, in summary, when a person has long economic 
exposure, whether conditional or absolute, to changes in the price of securities. 
In particular, a person will be treated as having an 'interest' by virtue of the 
ownership or control of securities, or by virtue of any option in respect of, or 
derivative referenced to, securities.

Terms in quotation marks are defined in the Code, which can also be found on the 
Panel's website. If you are in any doubt as to whether or not you are required 
to disclose a 'dealing' under Rule 8, you should consult the Panel.
