Metals prices continued to slide in the September quarter, but the exploration sector showed encouraging resilience during the period. Our index of activity was only slightly lower than in the June quarter, reaffirming recently released exploration budget data that suggests a spending increase of 19% in 2018. At the end of the quarter, the proposed Barrick/Randgold merger provided a much-needed uplift for the mining sector, with the merged company likely to divest US$2.6 billion in assets and stack up well against its peers in the coming years. Looking ahead to 2019, macroeconomic and geopolitical risks to continued global growth are rising, but the mining sector remains well positioned to thrive over the coming year.

As we near the close of 2018, join us for a review of the quarterly performance of the mining sector, and to gain insights on the outlook for 2019.
