Mining Quarterly Review – Q1 2020

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.
