    UPDATE 2-Zambia scraps sales tax plan in concession to miners

    Zambia will not replace its value-added tax (VAT) with a non-refundable sales tax as previously planned, Finance Minister Bwalya Ng'andu said on Friday, in a concession to mining companies that had fiercely opposed the proposal. Zambia, Africa's second-largest copper producer, is grappling with high debt levels and the effects of a severe regional drought which has depressed economic growth. The sales tax plan had been a major bone of contention between government and the mining industry, a critical sector.

    First Quantum Slumps After Saying It’s Not in Takeover Talks

    (Bloomberg) -- First Quantum Minerals Ltd., the owner of Africa’s biggest copper mine, headed for the biggest loss in seven weeks after the company said it hasn’t engaged in any discussions regarding a takeover bid or other change of control transaction.The miner “is aware of speculation regarding a potential transaction involving Jiangxi Copper Co.,” First Quantum said in a statement. “The company confirms that discussions regarding a potential sale of a minority interest in First Quantum’s Zambian copper assets have occurred and are continuing. No transaction has been agreed upon and there is no guarantee that a transaction will be achieved.”First Quantum became attractive to global miners after its market value had tumbled by almost half in the past five years. Last week, people familiar with the matter said First Quantum hasn’t yet received any formal takeover offers, but it has hired defense advisers to examine its options. The people asked not to be identified because the information is private.Jiangxi Copper, China’s top producer of the metal, has built up a stake of less than 10% in First Quantum in recent months, according to people with knowledge of the matter.First Quantum shares dropped as much as 12% to C$10.72 in Toronto trading before paring losses to C$10.88 at 10:35 a.m. The Canadian company posted the biggest two-day gain in more than three years on Friday.First Quantum would likely best fit with Rio Tinto Group as the global miner seeks to diversify away from iron ore, a Liberum analyst said in a research note. Potential buyers may include several Chinese firms, National Bank analyst Shane Nagle, said in a note last week.The list of potential buyers for the Canadian miner will likely be short because most diversified miners have exited Zambia, home to First Quantum’s Kansanshi mine, or show little interest in the area, Patrick Jones, an analyst at JPMorgan Chase & Co., said in a note last week.(Updates to add analysts’ comments in seventh paragraph.)\--With assistance from William Canny.To contact the reporters on this story: Joe Richter in New York at jrichter1@bloomberg.net;Vinicy Chan in New York at vchan91@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Luzi Ann Javier at ljavier@bloomberg.net, ;Ben Scent at bscent@bloomberg.net, Steven FrankFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Zambia mining firms say mineral royalties should be capped at 7.5%

    Zambia should keep mineral royalties capped at 7.5% in the 2020 budget to safeguard the health of the mining sector and promote additional investment, the Chamber of Mines said on Tuesday. The mining body said in proposals submitted to the finance ministry that the 2019 mining tax regime had raised the tax burden on mines to unsustainable and uncompetitive levels. "If the 1.5% increment on each band of the sliding scale is to be maintained, the maximum rate should be capped at 7.5%, for an LME copper price equalling or exceeding US$7,500/tonne," the Chamber of Mines said.

    Colombia is looking to become a notable producer of copper within the next few years, the head of the national mining agency said, in a bid to diversify its mining output without neglecting production of coal and gold. Mining in Colombia has historically been focused on large coal mines along its northern coast and relatively small scale gold and emerald operations in the Andes. "We have the potential, but we're an unexplored country in terms of copper," said agency president Silvana Habib in an interview on Thursday.
