West Africa Mining Report Q2 2016

BMI View: West Africa's growth outlook will weaken on the back of continued mineral price weakness,inadequate infrastructure and the aftermath of the Ebola outbreak over the coming quarters. The region'slong-term growth outlook remains promising due to countries' vast untapped mineral reserves, positiveforeign investment outlook and infrastructure developments.

Latest Developments & Structural Trends

In 2015, Rusal announced the signing of a Multi-User Operation Agreement on existing railwayinfrastructure at the Company's Dian-Dian project in Guinea. The Agreement allows the transportation ofbauxite, including that mined at Dian-Dian, using the existing railway infrastructure in the Boke provinceand creates an environment for the further development of project transport infrastructure.

Guinea's iron ore production will be supported by Rio Tinto's partnership with the Guinean governmentto construct a maritime terminal and the 'Trans-Guinean Railway'. The railway will link south-eastGuinea with the coast along the Southern Growth Corridor and will be essential for iron ore transportfrom the Simandou mine.
