BMI View: Slovakia's is among the smaller European mining sectors we monitor with activity in thecountry currently focused on brown coal, produced for domestic energy use, as well as small quantities ofgold, residual produce from a once-thriving gold mining industry. The scenario is unlikely to changesignificantly over the forecast period. However, we note that the Slovak government remain committed tosupporting coal miners given that the commodity represents an important source of energy production. Wealso note the potential for significant expansion in gold mining, should prices remain at a profitable level.Ortac Resources is currently conducting feasibility studies with a view to recommencing mining activities inthe country.

Key Updates And Forecasts:

- Slovakia's government appears committed to safeguarding the future of its coal mining sector for the timebeing. With around 90% of the country's energy imported from abroad, the government is under pressureto maintain electricity prices at an affordable level, and in February 2016 it secured approval to subsidisecosts to heavy industry to the amount of EUR250mn.

- We envisage Slovakia's total coal output to remain largely unchanged through our forecast period to2020. Coal production is expected to grow by 0.6% to 2.30mn tonnes (mnt) in 2016, rising to 2.53mnt in2020.

- Mined gold production is expected to be resumed in Slovakia within the current forecast perdio followingthe decision by Ortac Resources to recommence operations at the Šturec deposit. Production shouldgrow by 7.5% y-o-y over 2017-2020, reaching 1,900oz.
