Base Metals Mining in Mexico to 2020

Base Metals Mining in Mexico to 2020

Synopsis

The Base Metals Mining in Mexico to 2020 report comprehensively covers the country’s historic and forecast data on base metals (copper, zinc and lead) mine production, consumption and trade to 2020, and reserves by geographical region. The report also includes drivers and restraints affecting the industry, profiles of major base metals mining companies, information on the major active, exploration and development projects and regulations governing the industry..

The fiscal regime section provides information about the country’s regulatory authority, laws, licenses and other fiscal regime information such as taxes, rates and other charges applicable to the mining of the commodity in the country. It is an essential tool for companies active in Mexican mining, and for new competitors considering entering the industry.Summary

The country had the fifth largest global reserves of copper at 38Mt at the end of 2013, accounting for a 5.5% share of global reserves, the fourth-largest global reserves of zinc at 18Mt or a 7.2% share of global reserves and the fifth-largest lead reserves in the world, with 5.6Mt as of February 2014, a 6.2% global share. Mexico was the fifth most attractive country in the world for mining investments in 2013 due to its privileged location and the diversity and potential of its natural resources. Private investment in the industry was US$8 billion, a 5.2% increase compared with 2012. Foreign direct investment (FDI) in the mining industry during the first half of 2014 was US$853.6 million, which was more than double the US$408.2 million in the first half of 2013. On the other hand, domestic investment was US$576 million in 2013, down by 18.2% from the previous year, due to the introduction of a new royalty tax on output.Scope

Key Highlights

  • In 2013, the Mexican mining and metallurgical sector investments in new projects was the highest accounting for 30.6% of the total investments, followed by expansion projects (8.9%), maintenance (6.1%), exploration without partners (2.3%), environment (1.6%) and assets without partners (9%).
  • Mexico’s copper, zinc and lead mine production in 2013 was 480,124 tonnes (t), 642,540t and 253,360t respectively, with the majority originating from Sonora and Zacatecas.
  • The country’s copper, zinc and lead metal consumption in 2013 was 331,700t, 223,000t and 216,700t respectively, while the copper, zinc and lead ores and concentrates exports were 694,600t, 532,000t and 251,180t in the same year.
  • The introduction of the mining royalty of 7.5% in 2014 has not gone down well with the miners and has the potential to limit the attractiveness of the industry.
