After completing his studies, Satpayev was engaged in organizing and conducting the first stationary geological exploration work at the copper Zhezkazgan and coal Baikonur deposits, which initiated the systematic identification of mineral reserves in the entire Zhezkazgan-Ulytau region. By 1937, explored reserves of copper allowed to call Dzheskazgan the largest copper deposit in the world.

On February 13, 1938, the Order of the People's Commissariat of Heavy Industry was issued on the construction of the Dzhezkazgan Mining and Metallurgical Combine. In 1941, K.I. Satpayev is appointed director of the Geological Institute of the Kazakh Branch of the USSR Academy of Sciences, and a year later he becomes the head of this department – the future Academy of Sciences of the Republic. The official opening of the Republican Academy was held in 1946. In June 1946, Satpayev was elected its first president.
