The ongoing development of the Oyu Tolgoi (OT) copper and gold mine is set to transform the economic landscape of Mongolia over the coming years.

We believe Mongolia is on the cusp of a mining boom. The development of the massive Oyu Tolgoi (OT) mine is set to transform the economic landscape of the country due to the impressive growth in copper and gold production over the coming years. The growth of the mining sector will dwarf other areas of the economy, leading to an increasing concentration of labour and wealth in this industry. Indeed, the OT project is the biggest economic undertaking in Mongolia's history and will account for one-third of the economy once it becomes fully operational in 2021.

Despite the bouts of resource nationalism over the past quarters, we believe the Mongolian government will tone down its rhetoric against foreign miners. The government's policy priorities will shift away from the populist tones outlined during the election campaign, back to a more market-friendly platform. Campaigning for the presidential elections earlier in 2013 was aggressive and populist in nature, with resource nationalism a hotly-debated topic. Anti-foreign investor sentiment amongst the public was a major reason why the government took a more pronounced hardline stance towards key foreign investors in the country, notably global mining major Rio Tinto.

With elections now out of the way, the government can turn its attention to putting the economy back onto an even keel. Significantly, the underground expansion of OT will eventually push through as both the Mongolian government and Rio Tinto (which owns 50.8% of Turquoise Hill) have too much to lose from a prolonged suspension of the project ( see 'OT Underground Expansion Just Steps Away', September 30).
