BMI View: Namibia's mining sector will continue to be negatively affected by low mineral prices andsubdued metals demand. The country's diamonds and uranium production contracted in 2015, as well askey base metals such as copper. While production levels will remain under pressure through the comingquarters, we expect the country to remain an important destination for mining investment over the longterm.

Latest Developments & Structural Trends

- The bulk of exploration and mining in Namibia focuses on diamonds, uranium and base metals includingcopper, lead and zinc. A number of major players, including Rio Tinto and De Beers, operate inNamibia's mineral resources sector. Namdeb is a joint venture between De Beers (50%) and theNamibian government (50%), and is the country's leading diamond producer.

- In 2015, diamond production in Namibia will contract due to weak global demand and falling prices.Namdeb has reported a 15% y-o-y fall in its H115 production levels as output fell to 431,000 carats. Thecontraction is symptomatic of weaker global demand, with De Beers reporting a 26% y-o-y fall in salesvolumes for the same period.
