BMI View: Zimbabwe's mining industry will grow steadily in absolute terms over our forecast period through to 2019 as production increases across the key platinum and diamond mining sub-sectors.

However, we note a number of potential downside risks on the horizon, including falling mineral prices and an uncertain political and regulatory climate.

Latest Developments & Structural Trends
  • Zimbabwe is richly endowed with deposits of chrome, gold, nickel, diamonds and platinum, among other minerals. Its gold reserves are among the largest in Africa, while it has the world's second-largest platinum reserves. Diamond reserves are measured to be the second-largest globally after Russia.
Development in these key markets together with a gradual more stable political and economic climate has seen the country's status as major global producers strengthen in recent years. In terms of overall output, Zimbabwe is challenging the world's largest platinum producers, Russian and South Africa, while a recent reduction in taxes for smaller gold miners will see production rise at almost a double-digit rate this year.
