Report summary

Growing zinc demand and the loss of mine production due to closures and attrition create a requirement for new mine production capability of 4Mt/a of paid zinc (5Mt/a of zinc in concentrate) to come on stream by 2025. Against the backdrop of a global economy rife with uncertainty coupled with a low metal price environment the cost competitiveness of projects is paramount in order to meet the medium term requirement for new mine development. We have analysed the characteristics of zinc mine projects to observe how they compare to currently operating mines and if they will be economically viable at forecast metal prices.
