    What’s the Core Issue Facing the Global Aluminum Industry?

    The US Commerce Department has recommended actions including a tariff and quota against aluminum imports under the Section 232 imports probe that was completed earlier this year. While the news triggered buying interest in Century Aluminum (CENX), Alcoa (AA) actually closed with a marginal loss after the news broke out. There is significant aluminum overcapacity in China, and the country’s exports have been on the rise, despite the much-publicized winter month capacity curtailments.

    Mongolia's Oyu Tolgoi weighs power supply options amid plant delays

    Mongolia's giant Oyu Tolgoi copper-gold mine in the Gobi desert will weigh alternative options in order to guarantee electricity supply over the coming years, it said on Friday, after casting doubt on state plans to build a new power plant in the region. Oyu Tolgoi, which is run by Anglo-Australian mining giant Rio Tinto, is under pressure to procure power from domestic rather than Chinese sources within the next four years, as stipulated in a 2009 investment agreement. Mongolia's energy minister said this week that a power plant due to be constructed at the Tavan Tolgoi coal mine near the Chinese border could help meet the supply gap, if Rio Tinto could guarantee financing for the project.

    How Would Quotas Affect US Aluminum Buyers?

    As noted in the previous article, a flat tariff on aluminum imports might not have a major impact on US aluminum production and might not boost jobs in the US aluminum smelting industry. The quotas, if imposed, could have an impact on US aluminum production, as they would limit aluminum volumes in the US market at a time when demand is expected to rise as compared with last year.

    What Makes Grasberg the Crown Jewel of Freeport’s Portfolio

    As we noted in the previous part of this series, Freeport-McMoRan (FCX) expects its unit cash costs to fall in 2018, largely due to lower production costs at its Grasberg mine (RIO)(TRQ). Freeport expects a byproduct credit of $2.56 per pound at its Grasberg mine this year, bringing down the mine’s unit cash costs after byproduct credits to -$0.57 per pound. To put this figure in context, consider that the company’s unit cash costs after byproduct credits are expected to average $1.67 per pound in North America and $1.63 per pound in South America.

    The value of global mining and metals deals hit a four-year high in 2017, according to accountancy firm EY, as financial distress abated and companies sold off non-core assets.
