Diamond mining in Southern Africa Diamond mining in Southern Africa Has PDF
Published: 04 Nov 11
Much to the relief of the global diamond market, the diamond trade is at long last starting to show signs of revival, following the crippling global economic crisis of 2008/9. While 2010 was not a painless year for the diamond sector, given the structural issues that continued to afflict already stressed-out markets the world over and the, as yet, unanswered questions about the sustainability and the resilience of the global economy, the industry is, nonetheless, in a far better position than it was at the start of the financial crisis. Debt levels in cutting and polishing centres have been brought down to more controllable levels and diamantaires have done well in rebalancing their inventories – as a result rough diamond prices have rebounded and exceeded precrisis highs, with strong demand growth. This report discusses the world diamond market, with a particular emphasis on diamond-mining activities taking place in Southern Africa, and provides information on key companies, operations and projects.

The ideal in any national economy is for the government to spend capital when the private sector ceases doing so. In this way, the downturn of the project cycle can be prevented from descending to a low and the upturn from rising too high. There is now an all-out – although excessively prolonged – effort to ensure that this takes place in South Africa. The government’s infrastructure development cluster is attempting to use the R860-billion public investment programme to realise the long-promised alignment of its infrastructure development plans with job generation and industrial recreation. Government has said that the economy needs to grow by 7% a year on a sustained basis to decrease the unemployment rate, which is currently at over 25%. Current plans for large-scale infrastructure developments in South Africa, such as electricity plants, rail and road upgrades and water management schemes, are expected to sustain between 50 000 and 100 000 jobs in construction up to 2015. Thus this edition of Projects in Progress includes details on electricity, transport, water and environmentally centred ‘green’ development, as well as mining projects covering coal, gold, iron-ore, platinum, diamonds and uranium.

Coal 2011: A review of South Africa's coal sector Coal 2011: A review of South Africa's coal sector Has PDF
Published: 31 Aug 11
Coal is of critical importance to the South African energy economy. It is the source of 93% of the country’s electricity, 70% of its primary energy and 30% of its petroleum liquid fuels. Local demand for coal is growing, particularly from electricity utility Eskom, which is pursuing a massive capacity expansion programme that includes significant new coal-fired facilities. At the same time, demand for South African coal on the export market is rising, particularly from countries such as India and China, and South African coal-mining companies are benefiting from increased prices for their export coal. This report details activities in South Africa's coal-mining industry and includes production and consumption statistics, as well as an overview of the major participants and selected smaller participants in the industry.
Platinum 2011 Platinum 2011 Has PDF
Published: 05 Aug 11
The supply of platinum from South Africa in 2010 was broadly consistent with supply in 2009, although mined output and actual refined platinum production in the country increased for the year. Supplies from the country were less than production, although, as much of the production took place in the latter part of the year, not all the refined metal had been shipped by year-end. This report offers insight into the global and South African platinum-group metals industry, and profiles the main producers operating in the country.

Real Economy Year Book 2011 Real Economy Year Book 2011 Has PDF
Published: 14 Jul 11
The outlook for South Africa’s real economy remains clouded in a number of uncertainties, from the outlook for its currency and inflation, to whether the upturn in commodity prices will be sustained as China moves to cool its rate of expansion. A major imponderable, though, is whether the prevailing electricity shortages will completely undermine government’s growth and employment aspirations, or whether the country will be able to successfully decouple from its energy intensive growth path. Given that mining remains this country’s primary competitive advantage, it appears unlikely that the South African economy will be able to turn its back on energy-intensive extraction, refining and industrial activities. Therefore, the focus is going to have to be on accelerating efforts to match capacity with growing demand, while insisting that existing and new power-intensive businesses use power far more efficiently. In this edition of the Real Economy Year Book, we take a look primarily at efforts to boost capacity, in the context of a “tight” supply-demand balance.
