Published: 21 Jul 17
Tanzania’s ongoing concentrate export ban, implemented in March, has significantly impacted on LSE-listed Acacia Mining’s results for the first six months of the year.

Moratorium infers intention to circumvent agreement – Leon Moratorium infers intention to circumvent agreement – Leon
Published: 21 Jul 17
The mineral rights moratorium gazette notice of Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane infers an intention to circumvent the underlying purpose of the agreement reached with the Chamber of Mines, Herbert Smith Freehills’ Africa partner and co-chair, Peter Leon, said on Friday. In particular, it appears that the Minister intends using the notice to coerce the chamber into a possible settlement of its injunctive proceedings, Leon added in a release to Creamer Media’s Mining Weekly Online, in which he made the point that one can deduce that the Minister’s intention is to find a way around fulfilling the agreement's purpose.
Iron’s surge to $70 draws out sceptics as prices reverse
Published: 21 Jul 17
Iron-ore’s strong start to the second half and surge above $70 a metric ton will probably fade through the year-end as demand from top buyer China slows and global mine supplies remain robust, according to Sucden Financial and Bank Julius Baer & Co. “Any significant uptick in seaborne cargoes toward the tail-end of the year, and a fading demand outlook, will likely see iron ore prices trade lower as we view this recent rally as transitory,” Kash Kamal, an analyst at Sucden Financial, said in an email. Prices will average about $60 this half, he said.
