Ghana Mining Report Q4 2015

Ghana Mining Report Q4 2015

BMI View: Ghana's mining sector is heavily reliant on gold production and, as such, will face severeheadwinds over the next few years as prices of the commodity come under increasing pressure globally.

Ghana's mining sector growth will be affected by a lack of diversity, as the country's gold sector accountsfor about 90.0% of total mineral exports. An ongoing decline in global prices will therefore pose a majorthreat to the growth of Ghana's mining sector going forwards, with prices forecast to average USD1,120/USD over 2015-2019. Falling prices will put increased pressure on the profit margins of the country's goldminers, with many firms, including market leader Newmont Mining, moving to cut expenditure in the faceof falling revenues. Despite gold price weakness, the country's mining sector will remain an importantcomponent of Ghana's economy through the next few years.
