Investors are always searching for better opportunities, and Africa, with its vast mineral resources, offers an appealing environment. The continent hosts more than 60 metal and mineral products and has much potential with regard to mineral reserves exploration and production. Mining projects, when well managed, also offer opportunities to transform Africa’s resource wealth into sustainable development in many of its countries. This edition of Creamer Media’s Africa Mining Projects in Progress highlights some of the prospective projects on the continent that have been announced focusing on recent preliminary economic assessments, scoping, prefeasibility and definitive/bankable feasibility studies, as well as some of the projects that are already under way.
Uranium: A review of the uranium mining industry in Africa Uranium: A review of the uranium mining industry in Africa Has PDF
Published: 15 Dec 17
The uranium industry has continued to face challenges, as low uranium prices have persisted for the sixth consecutive year amid bear market conditions, following the Fukushima nuclear disaster, in Japan, in March 2011. The impact of this uranium market downturn has taken a toll on uranium production, with cutbacks becoming the norm as higher-priced legacy long-term contracts come to an end. Nonetheless, nuclear energy continues to expand globally, owing to its ability to deliver large amounts of reliable and constant baseload energy without carbon emissions or air pollution at competitive generating costs, compared with alternative forms of electricity. Creamer Media’s Uranium 2017 report examines the global uranium market in the context of demand, supply, pricing and market outlook, with a particular focus on the African uranium market, and the mines, projects and exploration that are under way on the continent.
Coal 2017: A review of South Africa's coal sector Coal 2017: A review of South Africa's coal sector Has PDF
Published: 07 Dec 17
The South African mining industry has had a tough 2017 – a year of uncertainty and questions about the sustainability of the sector, as policy and regulatory concerns are stalling new investment. A downturn in the global coal industry has also affected investment in South African coal mines, as many of the large producers and exporters have embarked on a global reassessment of their coal strategies. There is also investor pressure on companies holding significant carbon resources. Creamer Media’s Coal 2017 report examines South Africa’s coal industry with regard to the business environment, the main participants, local demand, coal exports and coal logistics, projects being undertaken by the large and smaller participants, as well as various issues affecting the sector, including labour issues and environmental considerations.
Australia Mining Projects in Progress 2017 Australia Mining Projects in Progress 2017 Has PDF
Published: 21 Nov 17
Mining has been the driving force behind much exploration in Australia’s remote inland and its industrial development – from the gold rush in the nineteenth century, and the iron-ore and nickel booms of the 1960s to the later expansion of the coal industry. Mining comprises about 10% of Australia’s gross domestic product. Currently, the Australian mining industry is on the verge of a new mining boom, based on so-called tech metals. However, Australia's mining sector is awash in red tape, with overlapping legislation and replication between state and federal governments creating significant obstacles to the industry’s development. Mining companies prospecting, investing and pursuing new mining opportunities spend a considerable amount of time and money dealing with bureaucracy – eliminating this in mining, particularly the project approval process, is, therefore, crucial to take the growth and prosperity of Australia’s mining sector forward.
Diamonds 2017: A review of Southern Africa's diamond sector Diamonds 2017: A review of Southern Africa's diamond sector Has PDF
Published: 30 Oct 17
The diamond industry has faced much volatility in recent years and, although there were signs of improving market conditions in 2016 and so far in 2017, some uncertainty remains. Some market analysts questioned whether the industry has reached peak supply and point to the unlikelihood of mining companies finding any further large diamond deposits. Many believe that the best resources have been discovered. Miners worldwide, however, continue to explore for new deposits, and the biggest miners are also investing in expansion projects while smaller miners are working to bring new mines into production. Creamer Media’s Diamond 2017 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.
Base Metals 2017: A review of Africa's base metals sector Base Metals 2017: A review of Africa's base metals sector Has PDF
Published: 23 Oct 17
After declining by a collective 23.43% in 2015, base metals have rebounded since 2016 and the fundamentals suggest that a major reversal of this trend is unlikely to occur in the near term. Creamer Media’s Base Metals 2017 report examines the global base metals market, with a particular focus on the supply and demand of copper, zinc, nickel and lead in the African market, and on selected base metals operations and projects on the continent.

South Africa’s project economy continues to tick over, albeit at an uninspiring pace. Some State-owned enterprises, such as Transnet, have confirmed a significant pull-back in investment plans, while private fixed investment remains under pressure as a result of weak economic growth and ongoing policy uncertainty, particularly in the mining industry. Nevertheless, Creamer Media’s second Projects in Progress supplement for this year includes valuable updates on and insights into some of the largest fixed investment programmes under way in South Africa.

As a major focus of minerals mining in the world, and an untouched treasure trove of natural resources, Africa has a sizeable and thriving mining industry. The mining sector does not only provide employment for millions of African nationals, but is also a significant source of foreign direct investment and earnings. According to mine and industry engineering company Ukwazi nonexecutive director Alan Clegg the commodities that are likely to provide a sufficient upward cycle, thereby sustaining investor interest in Africa, are precious metals, base and battery metals, and energy fuels. The burning question facing the mining sector, however, is whether, and how, it can make its full potential contribution to satisfy the ever-growing need for mineral resources while capturing the wider socioeconomic benefits from such development. This edition of Creamer Media’s Africa Mining Projects in Progress reviews recently announced scoping, prefeasibility and definitive/bankable feasibility studies on projects across the continent, as well as the projects that are under way.
Real Economy Yearbook 2017 Real Economy Yearbook 2017 Has PDF
Published: 30 Jun 17
There is now no question that South Africa’s poisonous political environment is having a toxic effect on the real economy. Despite more supportive exogenous conditions for agriculture and mining, the country has nevertheless descended into its first recession in eight years. Indeed, the shift from external to internal causes is the key difference between the current recession and the one in 2009. Back then, the economic slump, which resulted in a million jobs having been shed domestically, was precipitated by a global financial crisis that had its origins in US’s subprime housing crisis. This time, the pain is mostly self-inflicted and driven primarily by ongoing political tensions and growth-sapping policy uncertainty. That said, parts of the economy continue to show resilience in the face of political headwinds. Some of this hardiness is reflected in this edition of the Real Economy Yearbook, which confirms the difficulties, but offers insight into those areas where there are signs of improvement.
