BMI View:
Zambia's mining royalty reversal will support the sector's investment outlook. However, both low copper and coal prices and the country's high degree of mineral policy uncertainty will continue to limit the sector's production growth until the country's presidential elections in 2016. Latest Developments And Structural Trends

- We have lowered our 2016 and 2017 copper price forecasts slightly, to USD4,750/tonne and USD4,900/ tonne, respectively, due to sustained oversupply. Nonetheless, we maintain the narrative of copper finding a base in 2016 and stabilising thereafter as the surplus gradually narrows over our forecast period to 2020.

- Thermal coal prices will weaken over 2017 due to both stronger coal mine production and weaker demand growth in China. We expect Q416 levels to represent the peak of thermal coal prices for the next several quarters.

- The country's political uncertainty will continue to play a big role in whether future investment will materialize. For instance, over the first six months of 2015, the mining code was adjusted three times, increasing uncertainty among existing and potential long-term investors in the sector. In our view, miners will become increasingly concerned about the uncertain political climate and will limit or halt new projects from coming online altogether.
