Czech Republic Mining Report 2016
Includes 3 FREE quarterly updates

BMI View: The Czech mining sector is set to consolidate further over the next few years due to the gradual winding down of the country's hard coal mining operations in the east of the country. The country's online functioning uranium mine is also scheduled for closure in 2017. We note potential expansion in the thermal coal sector, as the commodity remains an important source of domestic energy generation; however, increasing pressure on the government to comply with EU emissions regulations leaves us to question whether this is a viable long-term strategy.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends
  • Our outlook for Czech coal mining output is increasingly bearish, following growing concerns surrounding the country's hard coal mining sector. We forecast overall coal production to fall by 2.3% in 2016 to 53.4mn tonnes (mnt) and to continue declining on an annual basis through to 2020 when it will total 52.3mnt.
  • The outlook for the thermal coal sector looks more positive. In October 2015, the government approved a plan to develop the mining of lignite, which will reportedly allow miners to expand mining of the commodity beyond the previous environmental limits. The northwest of the Czech Republic is estimated to contain up to 120mnt of lignite deposits.
  • As such, Czech mining looks set to find itself solely reliant on thermal coal within the next decade. The country's sole uranium mine, Rožná, is due to close in mid-2017, though there have been reports of a potential uranium mining being launched at Brzkov from 2020.
