Gold 2015: A review of South Africa's gold sector Gold 2015: A review of South Africa's gold sector Has PDF
Published: 18 May 15
South Africa’s gold output has been declining for several years. For more than a century, the country had been the world’s largest gold producer, but it lost this position to China in 2008 and has since dropped in the global gold-production ranks to sixth position, behind China, Australia, the US, Russia and Peru. South Africa’s gold production has declined by an average of 8.2% a year in the past ten years, with the country’s gold production market share decreasing from 13% in 2004 to 5.3% in 2013. The contribution of gold sales to South Africa’s total mineral sales has also decreased from 30% in 2000 to 12% in 2014. The decline in South Africa’s gold production is partly linked to an operating environment characterised by ageing mines; rising costs; falling grades; a strike-prone, yet underproductive workforce; electricity shortages; the threat of illegal mining; and the lack of new technology to enhance efficiency and effectiveness in the industry. In this context, Creamer Media’s Gold 2015 report reviews the global gold market and gold companies that have operations in Africa. It particularly focuses on the South African gold sector, including labour issues and electricity shortages, as well as prospects for the sector.
Platinum 2015: A review of South Africa's platinum sector Platinum 2015: A review of South Africa's platinum sector Has PDF
Published: 12 May 15
The global platinum group metals market had to deal with a challenging 2014, with much of the attention centred on the labour situation in South Africa and on the events in Ukraine, and their possible implications for especially palladium. After the turbulence in the South African platinum mining industry in 2012 and 2013, which had been described as one of the most difficult periods in the sector’s history, 2014 was an even tougher year for the world’s largest platinum-producing companies. An unprecedented five-month strike across the Rustenburg platinum belt, in South Africa’s North West province, battered producers, shutting down 45% of the world’s platinum supply. The strike resulted in about 1.3-million ounces of platinum being removed from the seven-million-ounce market. However, despite the supply-side woes in South Africa, platinum prices hardly responded to the strike, owing to a global oversupply and the selling of inventory. In comparison, three separate strike actions in 2012, in South Africa, had each added about $100/oz to the platinum price. Creamer Media’s Platinum 2015 report reviews South Africa’s platinum-sector business environment, with particular focus on the main participants in the platinum industry, as well as other platinum producers, and exploration and development companies. The report also provides a global overview of the platinum market and an outlook for the sector.

Iron-Ore 2015: A review of the iron-ore sector Iron-Ore 2015: A review of the iron-ore sector Has PDF
Published: 24 Apr 15
While analysts and other stakeholders differ on their forecast for the average iron-ore price in 2015, there is consensus that the oversupply caused by increasing output, mainly from major producers, and slowing demand growth from number-one consumer China, will result in the commodity averaging $70/t or lower this year. Like producers of other commodities, iron-ore miners, are adjusting to the reality that the peak years of a commodity supercycle, driven by a robustly growing China, might be over. Given that the Asian giant produces more than half of the world’s steel and that about 98% of iron-ore is used in steelmaking, no commodity is more exposed than the ferrous mineral to the deceleration in Chinese economic growth. Creamer Media’s Iron-Ore 2015 report provides an overview of the global iron-ore market, with particular reference to pricing, supply and demand, as well as the trade in iron-ore. It provides information on not only the major mergers and acquisitions, and the trade of iron-ore in the sector, but also the major global iron-ore producing companies and other significant producers. This report further provides an overview of South Africa’s iron-ore market and its major producers.

Mineral endowments are not only limited but they are also subjected to long-term real price decline and prone to cyclical vacillations. The minerals mostly require many skills and considerable capital to extract and process. Their momentum if understood and managed, could be used to change Africa’s disabling economic circumstances. The African continent is well endowed with mineral resources and has an extensive mining history. It hosts the world’s largest mineral reserves of platinum, gold, diamonds, chromite, manganese and vanadium. It also produces about 17% of the world’s uranium. Most of these minerals are exported as ores, concentrates or metals without significant downstream processing to add value. This is mainly owing to the weak assimilation of Africa’s mining sector into national economic and social activities, says the International Study Group Report on Africa’s Mineral Regimes. This has led to the continued belief that Africa’s untapped mineral potential can function as a springboard for the continent’s industrialisation. Creamer Media’s African Mining Projects in Progress 2015 report tracks developments taking place in Africa’s mining sector and across various mining sectors on the continent, including coal, copper, gold, iron-ore, platinum and uranium.
