Investment summary

On 1 August, MMG announced completion of the acquisition of the Las Bambas copper project from Glencore. Earlier, the company reported Q214 operating results, with zinc and lead production rising 2% q-o-q (136.3kt) and 44% (26.8kt), and copper output sliding 12% (43.4kt). At the project level, Kinsevere maintained record production levels, with H114 copper volumes rising 13% y-o-y to 33.6kt on the back of higher throughput and grades. MMG has also revised its FY14 production guidance from 173-186kt to 177-190kt for copper and from 600-625kt to 580-605kt for zinc. Based on the mid-point, this is a 2% improvement for copper and a 4% reduction for zinc. On the cost side, FY14 C1 cost guidance for Kinsevere and Sepon remains unchanged, while cost estimates for Century and Golden Grove were reduced by 3% for the former and 7% (copper)/21% (zinc) for the latter.
