BMI View:
More Chinese miners will come under duress from the economic slowdown in China over the coming years. Falling mineral prices and Beijing's gradual embrace of free market economics will threaten the survival of many small and private mining operations. We believe the economic slowdown in China will turn a decade-long mining boom into bust for many domestic miners. With cost containment being the key lever in the face of falling commodity prices, Chinese miners will be forced to recalibrate their investment approach over the coming quarters. While state-owned miners are generally more insulated from the weakness in mineral prices, Beijing's gradual embrace of free market economics should pave the way for some much needed consolidation and restructuring in the mining industry.
