Diamonds 2016: A review of South Africa's diamond sector Diamonds 2016: A review of South Africa's diamond sector Has PDF
Published: 26 Oct 16
Although the first half of 2016 has signaled more stability in the diamond market after a turbulent 2015, volatility has become the near normal and the industry maintains a cautious outlook in the near term as significant global economic uncertainty remains. Ratings agency Moody’s believes that diamond miners will be under pressure until the end of 2016 or mid-2017, owing to a temporary supply and demand mismatch, which has resulted in lower rough diamond prices. Although, it notes that production cutbacks should help to rebalance the market. In the long term, however, a lack of new diamond discoveries and high depletion rates for existing mines should prevent a supply glut. Creamer Media’s Diamond 2016 report provides an overview of the world diamond market, which includes a look at rough diamond production, supply and demand, imports and exports, and synthetic diamonds. The report emphasises diamond mining activities in South Africa over the past 12 months, and provides information on the country’s major and midtier diamond producers, junior diamond mining companies, explorers and developers.

Published: 30 Sep 16
Notwithstanding the feeble global economic condition, there is little doubt that internal dynamics, especially in the political environment, have emerged as the main constraint to growth in South Africa. These domestic pressures are weighing on confidence and, in turn, on levels of fixed investment. Those companies most exposed to the South African project economy are struggling to sustain order books, while margins have come under pressure. There has also been a concerted effort by a number of engineering contractors, in particular, to seek work elsewhere as South Africa’s project pipeline fails to live up to its earlier promise. These fragilities are apparent in this Project in Progress supplement, where very few brand new projects are featured. Nevertheless, there are still a number of developments under way across a broad range of resources and industrial subsectors. There is, however, little question that South Africa’s fixed-investment environment is nowhere near as lively as it could be in light of the country’s resources potential.

While 2015 was a challenging year for the global mining industry, professional services firm SNL Metals & Mining has said early indications are that 2016 is unlikely to reveal the light at the end of the tunnel for the sector. The firm notes that, with depressed metals prices, production exceeding demand for most metals, high levels of international political turmoil and a slowing Chinese economy, investors are understandably wary of the mining industry and of markets in general. In Africa, as in certain other developing regions, mining companies face the increasing challenge of changing expectations in respect of their social licence to operate, while a skills dearth, successfully implementing capital preservation projects and meeting government revenue expectations pose further challenges. This edition of Creamer Media’s Africa Mining Projects in Progress 2016 (First Edition) reviews recently announced scoping, prefeasibility and definitive/bankable feasibility studies on projects across the continent, as well as the projects that are under way.

There is little question that pressing ahead with South Africa’s infrastructure programme has become even more important amid the difficulties confronting the economy and key sectors such as mining and agriculture. The country’s mining industry is having to adjust to lower commodity demand and prices that are likely to remain lower for longer, while the farming sector is in distress as a result of South Africa’s worst drought in a generation. However, reigniting growth to levels required to avoid further job losses, social dissonance and the dreaded downgrade to South Africa’s investment-grade credit rating will require even higher levels of investment. Creamer Media's latest edition of the Projects in Progress supplement provides insight into some of the larger public and private projects being undertaken across South Africa, as well as selected economies in Central and West Africa, while demonstrating that serious gaps remain in progressing some important transformational projects from planning to implementation.

Platinum 2016: A review of South Africa's platinum sector Platinum 2016: A review of South Africa's platinum sector Has PDF
Published: 02 Jun 16
Lower supply of and higher demand for platinum are expected to lead to a 455 000 oz deficit in 2016, compared with the 135 000 oz deficit previously forecast, according to the World Platinum Investment Council’s latest ‘Platinum Quarterly’ report for the first quarter of this year. Global platinum supply is forecast to decrease by 1% to 7.8-million ounces this year, from 7.9-million ounces in 2015, while global demand for platinum is expected to increase “marginally” to 8.25-million ounces this year, from 8.22-million ounces in 2015. Creamer Media’s Platinum 2016 report provides a global overview of the platinum market and an outlook for the sector, with a particular focus on South Africa’s platinum-sector business environment. The report focuses on the main participants in South Africa’s platinum industry, other platinum producers, and exploration and development companies.
