BMI View: Russia's gold and coal production growth will be the sector's relative bright spots, while PGM'sand iron ore output growth will grind to a halt. Low metal prices, the country's inadequate infrastructureand Western sanctions will continue to limit the sector's production growth.

Latest Developments & Structural Trends

- With 157bn tonnes (bnt) of coal deposits, Russia's holds the second largest recoverable coal reserves inthe world. We expect Russia's coal production to grow from 392mn tonnes (mnt) in 2015 to 427mnt in2019, as production ramps up in the country's Kuznets basin. This would represent an average annualproduction growth of 2.3% during 2016-2020, significantly lower than the average 6.4% during2010-2014.

- We forecast Russia's gold output to grow from 8.0 million ounces (moz) in 2016 to 8.4moz in 2020. Thiswould represent an average annual growth of 1.5% during 2016-2020, significantly slower than 5.3%during 2011-2015.

- We have revised up our iron ore forecasts to 2020. We expect iron ore prices to average USD48.0/tonneduring 2016 and USD43.0/tonne in 2017, up from our previous forecasts of USD38.0/tonne andUSD40.0/tonne, respectively. Our upwards revision is predicated on the strong H116 iron ore price rallydue to increasing demand from Chinese steel mills (see: ' Iron Ore: Chinese Stimulus Only Short-TermBoost To Prices', May 5).

- We've revised down Russia's 2016 output forecast from 2.3% to -0.5% for 2016 due to weaker thanexpected output from Russian iron ore producer Mettaloinvest. Despite this, Russia's iron ore productiongrowth will be supported by the country's vast iron ore reserves and Metalloinvest's strategy to increaseoutput through innovation at the firm's existing mines over our forecast period to 2020. Russia holdsmore than 25bn tonnes of iron ore reserves, making it the third largest holder of reserves, after Australiaand Brazil, respectively. We forecast Russia's iron ore production to row from 107mn tonnes (mnt) in2016 to 117mnt in 2020, averaging annual growth of 1.8% during 2016-2020, showcasing consistentgrowth following 2.4% y-o-y during 2011-2015.
