"Zambia Mining Report Q4 2015" now available at Fast Market Research

Zambia's mining royalty reversal will boost the sector's investment attractiveness. However, mineral policy uncertainty will continue to limit the sector's growth outlook until the country's Presidential elections in 2016.

The April 20, 2015, decision by the Zambian government's decision to slash mining royalties will bolster the country's mining sector growth outlook. The new royalty tax will come into effect on July 1 2015 and will cut royalties on open pit mining from 20.0% to 9.0%. The downwards revision supports our view that the royalty tax would be unsustainable in its current form ( see 'Tax Moderation On The Cards' January 9).

Although the recent downwards revision is positive news for miners, mineral policy uncertainty will limit a share of investors from entering the sector. The current Zambian President, Edward Lungu, was narrowly elected on a populist platform in January 2015, hence his reaffirmation of the previous mining royalty tax. However, with the April 2015 slashing of the mining tax, Lungu has backpedalled on his populist stance. As a result, we expect mineral royalties to become a hot topic for the upcoming 2016 Presidential election and for mining policy uncertainty to remain high.
