Coal 2021: What is the future of Coal? Coal 2021: What is the future of Coal? Has PDF
Published: 01 Apr 21
Coal markets had a tough 2020. Demand collapsed as the Covid-19 pandemic swept the globe, gutting energy use and shutting down industrial activity. The pandemic came at a time when coal already faced a perfect storm of fast-expanding renewables growth, cheap natural gas prices and an increasing awareness among governments and investors of the need to reduce carbon emissions. What the future holds for coal is further clouded by the fact that many financial institutions and corporates have divested from the coal energy sector, while others have committed to reducing their investment in the sector and large coal miners are retreating from thermal coal mining. Further, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called on wealthy nations to end coal use by 2030, so that the world can meet its goal of reducing global warming and end the “deadly addiction to coal”. Creamer Media’s 'Coal 2021: What is the future of coal?' report reviews developments in South Africa’s coal sector and its prospects in the energy transition era, focusing on the business environment at home and abroad; it’s main participants and some of the smaller producers in the sector; as well as environmental considerations that have come to the fore.
Gold 2020: A review of South Africa's gold sector Gold 2020: A review of South Africa's gold sector Has PDF
Published: 02 Dec 20
Record-high gold prices, following the economic fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic, have left miners with plenty of cash, but they seem hesitant to immediately invest that cash in expanding output for fear of repeating mistakes made during a previous boom, when some investments failed to meet expectations. However, there is also a growing realisation in the industry that investment in growing reserves has been lacking and that new deposits urgently need to be discovered to ensure the future supply of gold. Creamer Media’s Gold 2020 report reviews the global and South African gold markets in this context. Globally, the focus is on supply and demand, and gold’s remarkable performance over the past few months. In South Africa, the focus of the report turns to rising costs and energy constraints in the sector, as well as labour challenges, the settlement of an historical class action lawsuit against the country’s major gold miners, and growing criminal activity in the sector. It also reviews the major and smaller mining companies with operations in South Africa.

Platinum 2020: A review of South Africa's platinum sector Platinum 2020: A review of South Africa's platinum sector Has PDF
Published: 10 Nov 20
Owing to Covid-19-associated impacts, the World Platinum Investment Council forecasts that platinum supply in 2020 will be 14% lower year-on-year, at 7.10-million ounces, reflecting a 15% decline in refined production and a 12% decline in recycling supply on 2019 figures. The council expects demand to be 11% lower than the 2019 figure, at 7.43-million ounces, resulting in a deficit of 336 000 oz. Creamer Media’s Platinum 2020 Report considers these figures in light of the challenges that South Africa’s platinum group metals sector has been facing over the past few years, including unreliable electricity supply, coupled with steep and unpredictable tariff increases, as well as steep increases in the costs of other inputs such as labour and other essentials. The report also provides an overview of the global platinum sector.
Global Mining Projects in Progress 2020 Global Mining Projects in Progress 2020 Has PDF
Published: 04 Nov 20
The global mining industry has not escaped the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and is facing a new reality, with measures to curb the spread of the virus impacting on economies, mining operations and their supply chains, manufacturing industries, the general public and, consequently, the demand for minerals and metals. Only time will tell if the economic impacts of the global lockdown on the mining sector are worse than the pandemic itself.

Even before the Covid-19 pandemic kicked lumps out of the South African economy, the country was on the back foot when it came to fixed investment projects and its pipeline of new investments. Public-sector spending was waning, despite huge backlogs and community protests over the lack of services, while the private sector lacked the policy certainty and confidence needed to proceed with major projects. Now that the virus has further undermined the financial capacity of government and its poorly managed State-owned entities to stimulate the economy through large-scale infrastructure programmes, any infrastructure-led recovery will require new delivery, funding and business models. Only through extreme transparency will South Africa attract investors motivated by fair returns over the project life cycle, rather than predatory opportunists and rent seekers. Another critical component lies in having a ready-made pipeline of projects that are immediately bankable, rather than merely aspirational. That pipeline must include not only projects directed at meeting the country’s most pressing infrastructure needs but those that can also be immediately funded through sustainable fiscal transfers, user-pay tariffs or a combination of the two. South Africa, therefore, needs to adopt a far more innovative and collaborative approach to the conceptualisation, financing, implementation, operations and maintenance of public infrastructure if it is to have any hope of truly using such investments to stimulate a recovery from the economic devastation wrought by Covid-19. These difficulties are partially reflected in the second edition of the Projects in Progress supplement.
