BMI Publishes Special Report, ‘Frontier Mining: After The Super-Cycle’

Business Monitor International (BMI) has just published a new special report ‘Frontier Mining: After The Super-Cycle’, which examines the prospects for mining investment in frontier markets in light of the deteriorating outlook for mineral prices.

The report looks beyond the current uncertainty surrounding the mining industry and outlines the case for further frontier mining investment, given our forecast for lower mineral prices in the coming years. The report provides analysis of countries with key growth potential, such as Mozambique, Myanmar, and Vietnam, and it also assesses real threats to frontier mining, including resource nationalism, infrastructure problems, and commodity prices.

Customers can use BMI’s core views on frontier mining, which are comprehensively backed up by data and forecasts, to understand the risks and opportunities to their operations and to enhance their investment decision-making. The report answers key questions, such as:

  • Which countries offer real investment opportunities, and why?

  • Which markets are susceptible to resource nationalism and what are the implications for growth?

  • What impact will the slowing Chinese economy have on future investment strategies around the world?

  • How significant will South East Asia become in the mining sector over the coming years, and which markets in particular will emerge?

  • Which countries in Africa are on the verge of a resource boom?

  • Which markets are worth keeping a close eye on as potentially significant producers in Central America?

  • The special report draws on BMI’s 30 years of experience to critically evaluate the prospects for mining investment in the frontier markets over the long-term, helping you assess the role it could play in your company’s growth strategy for 2013 and beyond.
