While the US mining industry continues to be one the largest, most diverse and well developed in the world, we expect the sector to grow at only a moderate pace through the 2019. One of the main factors impeding its expansion is global price weakness in a number of key mined products, including gold, coal and copper which is leading to consolidation and a lack of new investment in some markets. The total industry value is nevertheless forecast to reach USD139bn in 2019 while the US's considerable reserves and well-established framework will ensure the country remains an important centre for mining for many years to come.

We forecast the US mining sector will see modest average annual growth, reflecting a broader trend among developed mining markets. For the period of 2015-2019, we forecast average annual growth of 1.9%.

Thus, we expect capital expenditure to remain subdued over the coming quarters and expect consolidation among some junior miners. We also expect further consolidation to take place across gold mining and other markets as smaller, junior miners struggle to remain profitable among continued price pressures.

In April, gold miner Coeur Mining acquired all outstanding shares of rival Paramount Gold and Silver...
