Botswana Mining Report Q2 2015

Botswana Mining Report Q2 2015

BMI View: Botswana will remain one of the best regulated and strongest performing mining sectors inAfrica over the coming years. The sector will largely be driven by the diamond industry, though othermetals and minerals will see increasing prominence, including coal, copper, and nickel. Additionally,uranium mining is likely to take off over the next decade.

We maintain a constructive outlook for Botswana's mining sector over our forecast period to 2019.

Diamonds will remain the mainstay of Botswana's mining sector, boosted by new projects planned byDebswana, Gem Diamonds and Lucara Diamond Corp. Yet we expect coal will become an increasinglyprominent component of the wider mining sector and forecast production will accelerate in the years ahead.

We therefore forecast the country's mining industry value will see average annual growth of 4.0% to 2019,reaching a value of USD3.7bn by 2019.
