DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3cpz76/iron_ore_mining) has announced the addition of the "Iron Ore Mining in South Africa to 2020" report to their offering.
The 'Iron Ore Mining in South Africa to 2020' report comprehensively covers the country's historical and forecast data on iron ore production by form, reserves, consumption and trade to 2020. The trade section provides information on export volumes to destination countries. The report also includes drivers and restraints affecting the industry, profiles of major iron ore mining companies, information on the major active, exploration and development projects and regulations governing the industry.
The South African government's National Infrastructure Plan, which deals with the development of the country's economic landscape, primarily concentrates on 18 Strategic Integrated Projects (SIP). Of these, three specifically focuses on the mining sector, including the Saldanha-Northern Cape development corridor; integrated rail; and port expansion, through which the annual throughput capacity of the Sishen-Saldanha iron ore corridor is expected to increase by about 40% post-development.
- In the first quarter of 2014, the mining and quarrying industry reflected negative growth of 24.7% over the fourth quarter of 2013, due to lower production in gold, platinum and diamond mining.
- The Northern Cape, Limpopo and Mpumalanga Provinces account for the majority of the country's iron ore production.
- South Africa's iron ore production in 2013 was estimated to have increased marginally over the previous year, despite domestic consumption having increased by around 6.3% over 2012, with most of the iron ore consumed by the domestic steel industry.
- Capacity additions at existing mines and new iron ore projects which are scheduled to commence operations, are expected to increase South Africa's iron ore production.
