Loophole lets Norway's $1tr fund boost its coal exposure Loophole lets Norway's $1tr fund boost its coal exposure
Published: 23 Jan 19
Norway’s massive sovereign wealth fund has increased its exposure to coal reserves even after imposing restrictions on investing in the fossil fuel that’s seen as one of the main catalysts for global warming, according to a report. The findings are another illustration of how the ban, which restricts investments in companies that get more than 30% of their activity or revenue from coal, still allows investments in giants such as trader Glencore and miner BHP Group. Opposition politicians and environmental groups have called on Norway to close “loopholes” as the government prepares to present a review of the rules this year.

Fresnillo records strong, but lower-than-expected FY results
Published: 23 Jan 19
LSE-listed, Mexico-focused miner Fresnillo achieved record silver production, and strong gold production in 2018, despite it being a challenging year for the company. Silver production for the year was 61.8-million ounces, including Silverstream, up 5.3% on 2017, mainly owing to the first full year of operations at Phase 2 of San Julián. Gold production for the year was 923 000 oz, up 1.3% compared with 2017, mainly owing to the higher ore grade and recovery rate at Saucito, the contribution of the new Pyrites plant at Saucito and the higher ore grade at Fresnillo.
