Global economic trends such as rising commodity prices, surging demand for commodities by emerging economies and spiralling global demand for energy has resulted in strong investor interest in Namibia's uranium, diamond and copper mining sectors.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (industrialautomation.frost.com), Production and Investment Forecasts in the Namibian Mining Industry, finds that a total of $1.75 billion was invested in Namibia's mining industry in 2010 and this is estimated to increase to $2.38 billion by 2015. Construction and development projects in the uranium mining sector account for the bulk of the capital expenditure in the Namibian mining industry. The research service covers the following sectors: gold, diamonds, uranium and copper.

"High uranium prices, paralleled by growing global demand for energy, will result in Namibia doubling its uranium production to approximately 12,000 tonnes by 2015 from the 5,300 tonnes the country produced in 2010," notes Frost & Sullivan's IPC Industry Analyst Wonder Nyanjowa. "Namibia's extensive uranium deposits, coupled with the expansion of existing mines, will result in the country's uranium production increasing sharply in the short to medium term."

Expansion projects at the Rossing Uranium and Langer Heinrich uranium mines, together with the construction of two new mines by the Areva Group and Forsys, will result in a surge in Namibia's uranium production over the next 4-5 years. With the construction of these two mines, the uranium mining sector will become the largest sector in the Namibian mining industry.

Uranium is poised to overtake diamonds as Namibia's largest foreign currency earner. Nevertheless, diamonds will continue to play a key role in the Namibian mining industry. The recovery of the global diamond markets will result in Namdeb resuming production at its mines.

"Uranium mining poses significant environmental challenges due to radioactivity and chemical toxicity associated with the waste material," cautions Nyanjowa. "Namibia's failure to develop and track environmental damage from its uranium mines poses significant policy challenges."

Delays in issuing prospecting and mining licenses are likely to result in the country losing potential investors to other countries.

"Namibia should provide a one stop shop facility for the issuing of prospecting and mining licenses to avoid losing investors in its mining sector to other countries," advises Nyanjowa. "This will significantly reduce the delays that potential investors are experiencing in getting regulatory approvals."
