Iron-Ore 2013: A review of the iron-ore sector Iron-Ore 2013: A review of the iron-ore sector Has PDF
Published: 26 Apr 13
The iron-ore mining industry, like other economic sectors, was pummelled by the 2008 worldwide economic downturn. However, thanks to stimulus packages introduced in 2009 resulted in the industry’s recovery in 2010 and 2011, with prices hitting highs of $193/t as steel output reached record levels. The price rally was shortlived as prices dropped sharply in 2012, hitting a three-year low of $86.70/t in September that year. Prices have since recovered again, but several analysts forecast that the iron-ore sector will experience difficult period over the next 12 to 18 months, owing to excess supply and projected slower steel output in China. The long-term outlook for iron-ore remains positive, albeit cautious, with the world’s biggest iron-ore miners – Vale, Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton – expecting China to be the major demand driver for the mineral until the end of the 2020s, when India and other developing countries are expected to take lead as Chinese growth diminishes. This report provides an overview of the global iron-ore market, with particular reference to pricing, supply and demand; a summary of the major global iron-ore producing companies and other significant producers; and an overview of South Africa’s iron-ore market and its major producers.

Published: 10 Apr 13
Gross fixed-capital formation by the public sector expanded at a yearly rate of 11% during the first nine months of 2012 and this Project in Progress update reflects most of the key infrastructure programmes being undertaken. While the project economy is still some way off from being strong, R827-billion has been earmarked over the next three years for spending by government departments and State-owned companies on a range of capital projects. State-owned companies (SoCs) will pursue the development of growth-facilitating economic infrastructure. Many SoC developments are large in scale, for example the Medupi and Kusile coal-fired power stations, which form part of Eskom’s R337-billion programme. They are expected to add an additional 17 000 MW of electricity generation by 2018, while the transmission network will also be expanded and strengthened. In the transport milieu, the main freight-focused rail and harbour investments being undertaken by Transnet also feature prominently. However, there are also several emerging public-transport programmes. The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa, for instance, is moving ahead with a major recapitalisation programme, while several of South Africa’s metropolitan councils have approved bus rapid transit systems. Among government’s so-called mega infrastructure projects are water developments, such as the Olifants River Water Resources Development Project and the Lesotho Highlands Water Project Phase 2; and renewable-energy projects that emerged from the first two bidding rounds under the Department of Energy’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme. Project activity is also continuing across most of the mining subsectors and in some pockets of industry. This publication features a range of coal, diamonds, gold, ferrous minerals, uranium, petrochemicals and platinum developments.

Gold 2013: A review of Africa's gold sector Gold 2013: A review of Africa's gold sector Has PDF
Published: 04 Apr 13
South Africa continues to hold the world’s largest reserves of gold after more than 126 years of mining; however, the country’s gold output has decreased in recent years. The share prices of South African gold companies have failed to increase in line with the growth of the gold price and the country’s gold stocks are believed to be undervalued. Further, since the second half of 2012, South Africa’s mining industry has been experiencing widespread industrial action, sparked by the August 2012 Marikana tragedy, in which 34 striking platinum miners were killed in a standoff with police. The incident damaged South Africa’s reputation as a world-class mining investment destination and, in the wake of the tragedy, labour discontent spread to various other mining sectors. The impact of labour unrest on the gold mining industry was significant, with several gold mining companies being forced to halt operations as a result of widespread wildcat strikes. Nonetheless, South African Chamber of Mines president and Anglo American CEO-designate Mark Cutifani has indicated that negative sentiment regarding South Africa has been “significantly overblown”. He contends that “the fundamentals are sound in South Africa . . . if we work together and manage the perception of how we’re dealing with the issues, it will get us back on track for people to be comfortable to invest in the country for the future”.
