GlobalData's "Mining Quarterly Review - Q1 2020" report provides a quarterly mining industry update, assessing the latest commodity trends by tracking commodity prices and global and company production for coal, iron ore, gold and copper. Analysis is provided on project momentum, based on projects that commenced operations and advanced in Q1 2020. In addition, the report also provides detailed analysis of development projects in the mining industry, segregated by country, commodity, and company and development capital expenditure. The report also analyses impact of coronavirus on the global mining industry.
The coronavirus outbreak is having a significant impact on several commodities, with steep declines in prices of base metals in particular in the first quarter, whilst the price of gold rose due to its position as a safe haven. On the other hand, production was initially not impacted significantly in the first quarter, but the outbreak led to widespread lockdowns towards the end of March with shuttering of mining activities in several key countries, including South Africa, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, India and parts of Canada. Around 76 mineral projects advanced in Q1 2020, down from 101 projects that advanced during Q4 2019.
