Slovakia's is among the smaller European mining sectors we monitor with activity in the country currently focused on brown coal, produced for domestic energy use, as well as small quantities of gold, residual produce from a once-thriving gold mining industry. The scenario is unlikely to change significantly over the forecast period. However, we note that the Slovak government remain committed to supporting coal miners given that the commodity represents an important source of energy production. We also note the potential for significant expansion in gold mining, should prices remain at a profitable level. Ortac Resources is currently conducting feasibility studies with a view to recommencing mining activities in the country.

Key Updates And Forecasts:

Slovakia's government appears committed to safeguarding the future of its coal mining sector for the time being. With around 90% of the country's energy imported from abroad, the government is under pressure to maintain electricity prices at an affordable level, and in February 2016 it secured approval to subsidise costs to heavy industry to the amount of EUR250mn.

We envisage Slovakia's total coal output to remain largely unchanged through our forecast period to 2020. Coal production is expected to grow by 0.6% to 2.30mn tonnes (mnt) in 2016, rising to 2.53mnt in 2020.

Mined gold production is expected to be resumed in Slovakia within the current forecast perdio following the decision by Ortac Resources to recommence operations at the Sturec deposit. Production should grow by 7.5% y-o-y over 2017-2020, reach ing 1,900oz.
