Chile Mining Report Q4 2015

Chile Mining Report Q4 2015

BMI View: Chile's mining sector will be supported by the country's stable political and businessenvironments, combined with its significant mineral reserves. However, output growth will decline due toaging mines, while subdued copper and precious metal prices will limit sector growth and miners'expansion plans.

Chile's mining sector will be dominated by copper production over our forecast period to 2019. The sector'spipeline of copper projects and the country's global dominance in copper production will ensure the countrymaintains its lead despite falling ore grades and lagging productivity. In 2014, copper accounted forapproximately 92% of mining exports as measured in dollar terms and nearly 55% of the country's totalexports. However, the latter represents a decline from 2010, when copper accounted for slightly over 58%of the country's total exports. Moreover, lower oil prices and a weaker Chilean peso on the back of USdollar strength will cap growth in input costs, providing a boon to miners facing subdued metal prices.
