Industry News


Myanmar’s re-emergence as a tin producer after more than sixty years has been branded  a “black swan” or extremely unpredictable event. Over the past four years, global tin prices have been depressed with the unexpected supply from Myanmar.


Currently, Myanmar is supplying almost ten percent of the world’s needs and a third of Chinas demand for the metal.  Experts are predicting that Myanmar tin has peaked and tin prices globally have steadied in anticipation.  However Myanmar’s tin mines are shrouded in mystery. Located in Man Maw, in the Wa region close to the China border, the mines are controlled by the United Wa State party, which has an armed wing and has long and close ties with China.  Even within the country, people are unclear of the current status of the tin ore.


At CMT’s 3rd Myanmar Mining Summit, Oct 18-20, Yangon, more on the state of Myanmar’s Mining industrywill be unveiled. Click here for the full agenda.

For 4 consecutive years, Myanmar Tin ore output has risen 10-fold from mere 5000 metric ton in 2012 to almost 50000 metric ton in 2015. But in 2016 the growth began to slow down. According to Cui Lin, chief China representative of the international Tin Research institute, whose estimate based is on Myanmar’s exports to China, this is due to the depletion in resources and drop in grades.


Indeed Myanmar’s tin ore industry is facing not only a development bottleneck but commercial challenges as production moved from open-pit mining to underground mining which involves substantial fixed-asset investment hence increased prodcution costs


The country’s output is expected to decline starting next year if more resources aren’t discovered in the near future.


Find out more about the state of Myanmar’s mining sector, at the 3rd Myanmar Mining Summit on 18-20 October in Yangon where the newly merged Ministry of Natural Resources & Environmental Conservation and official host, together with a host of influential speakers convene to provide latest update on legislation, mineral potential and downstream opportunities, investment and financing options, safety and technologies in this important last mining frontier

Metro Mining’s main focus is its bauxite assets, with construction on its Bauxite Hills project in Cape York expected to start early 2017, subject to project approvals and funding.


But the company has also been exploring other interests, and recently entered into an agreement to acquire an 80 per cent stake in the Mahar San Copper/VMS Project in Myanmar.


The project is located in the Sagaing Region of northern Myanmar, about 220 kilometres from Mandalay, and is highly prospective for copper, gold and base metal mineralisation in Volcanic Massive Sulphide (VMS) settings.


It consists of four concessions for copper exploration. The first three are smaller, ranging from 16 to 20 hectares, while the fourth is a larger concession covering 7.5 square kilometres. The joint venture also covers the Yar Taung Mine exploration and mining project, which comprises 1853.5 acres.


Metro Mining will contribute US$62,500 for their 80% interest and Mahar San will contribute to its tenements. In addition, Metro Mining will loan at least US $100,000 per year to undertake drilling, resource definition, feasibility studies and other evaluations.

The company is also open to involving other investors with a focus on Myanmar, during the development of the Mahar San project.
