Jubilee has announced that Phase 1 of its Roan copper project in Zambia is complete and that Roan has delivered its first shipment of copper-bearing concentrate to the Sable Refinery for processing. Jubilee will deliver 240t of copper concentrate per month in this first phase, rising to 400t/month in Phase 2 expected in Q3 2021. At the same time, Jubilee has signed a contract with a third-party to also supply copper units which are expected to add a further 150t/month by the end of June. We i

Jubilee Metals today provides its interims for the period ending December 2020. We've already had the operational update (14.01.2021) and this adds further details to what was an extraordinary period of growth in production and earnings. Growth has been staggering and with improved Platinum Group Metal (PGM) prices from the start of the year, allied with taking PGM production back in-house at its expanded Inyoni PGM recovery circuit in mid-year, our expectations for the second half of this fin
Jubilee put out an intraday press release yesterday updating on the performance in the first half (ending Dec 2020) of the FY 2021. Once again Jubilee delivers; significantly increased revenues and profits from its chrome and PGM division in South Africa and a small, but important, contribution from Zambia. Notably this improvement isn't just from commodity price performance; rather increased production, productivity, throughput, renegotiated contracts and all set alongside the strong performa
Jubilee today releases its audited annual accounts for the year ending June 30 2020. As expected, the results show the real progress made through the year. Production up, revenues up (132% to £54.8), Operating profit up (226% to £15.9m and EPS up (96% to 0.94/sh). We have seen solid progress on the expansion in the chrome and PGM projects in South Africa and consolidation of ownership of the projects against a background of Covid – which Jubilee successfully navigated. The year also saw robu
Jubilee today announces that it has tied up access to a further 115Mt of copper (cobalt) tailings (grading 0.3% copper and 0.05% Co) within 50km of its “Project Elephant” (with 150Mt of tailings). Today's news fits right into Jubilee's strategy in Zambia of securing sufficient feed for its Sable copper refinery at Kabwe and this should enable a near doubling of capacity at this existing plant to 25kt/yr of copper cathode over the short-term.

JLP has released an operational update for Q3-2020. The results demonstrate an unequivocal return to full operational status following Covid-19 disruption. Not only that, but the Q3 results have set another high bar with record production and financial performance. Despite Covid related uncertainty, JLP’s PGM and chrome strategy is starting to bear fruit. This is on the back of the expansion of feed supply via the acquisition of PGM and chrome rights coupled with operational efficiencies. In Zam

In all, 15koz of Platinum Group Metals were produced along with 136,1kt of chrome concentrate.

Hargreaves’ FY21 results confirm a period of material profit growth and cash generation. It has been a transformational period, in which all direct coal related activities ceased, HRMS profits surged and net debt was eliminated. As expected, the first 12p additional dividend has been proposed (total FY21 DPS 19.2p) and we expect this to recur for a further three years, at least. As we wrote in our recent detailed note, Hargreaves has been wholly repositioned and now has genuine momentum. The sha

Yet again, Rio managed to maintain its dividend extravagance. Although, besides mighty iron ore, the exceptional H1 results were partly also driven by aluminium and copper – where normalcy is gathering momentum. With key divisions moving in the right direction, and balance sheet flexibility being put to good use, i.e. rewarding shareholders and pursuing growth – this time via a greenfield lithium investment, Rio remains a promising large-cap mining play.

Salt Lake Potash has experienced more issues at Lake Way, with less than expected plant feed salt within harvest ponds. This has led to a decision to suspend the initial plant feed programme following processing of the first 90-110kt of harvest salts, to enable more salts to precipitate before commencing continuous harvesting activities. As a result, FY22 forecast SOP production has reduced from 165-185kt to 85-105kt.

What a difference a year makes - 12 months ago, the focus, quite understandably, was on the course of the pandemic and the lifting of the Lockdown (1) measures. For investors, it was the sustainability of the rally in markets seen since March 2020. Today, while we are still thinking about the lifting of lockdown measures, we are also concerned about two “old favourites” from previous decades. Inflation and the parlous state of public finances.
