State of the Market: Mining Q4-2018 Webinar

February 14 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am

Free

Price weakness persisted in the December quarter for many key commodities, such as copper and zinc, with the markets looking at a worsening environment for global trade. On the flip side, dovish noises from the U.S. Federal Reserve helped gold price rose by 7% during the quarter. For exploration it was mixed messages; drilling was up strongly in October and November and significant financings grew year over year, yet our Pipeline Activity Index fell to its lowest since July 2017.

M&A continues to escalate in 2019, with the recent announcement of the Newmont/Goldcorp merger, soon after the conclusion of the Barrick/Randgold deal. Exploration budgets are expected to track upwards for the third consecutive year.

As markets digest evolving uncertainties for global trade and the outlook for key economies, join us for our review of the quarterly performance of the mining sector, and see what’s in store for producer margins in 2019.
