Thank you Jason.Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen.It’s very good to see you. I am so pleased to present at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Metals and Mining Conference.
Today I would like to start by providing an overview of the journey Anglo American has been on over the past five years to transform ourselves into a company that delivers on its commitments by delivering shareholder value.In that time we have delivered an improvement in safety and embedded a performance culture focused on achievingbest practices.We’ve simplified and optimised our portfolio to focus on extracting value from the most attractive commodities and are close to completing our divestment program – with the recent announcement of the sale of Scaw South Africa, generating more than $4 billion in proceeds from our disposal program.We’ve turned around business unit performance and moved down the cost curve. Being at the lower end of the cost curve places us in a very competitive position, especially in the current uncertain macro environment.Our decision in 2009 to continue investing in our four major projects, is paying off. Three projects started production on or ahead of schedule in 2011.These are very competitive from an operating and capital cost perspective.For example the capital intensity for the LosBronces expansion is 34% lower than a recently announced project by one of our peers in Chile. (NOTE: On 3 May capex at the 80ktpa Antucoya project at Chile Antofagasta region has increased 31% from $1.3bn to $1.7bn despite only being approved in December 2011. Capex intensity for Antucoya of $21,250/t versus Los Bronces expansion of $14,000/t, 200ktpa at $2.8bn.)Before I turn to our cash flow allocation approach, I will give a quick update on our first quarter operational performance.
During the first quarter, Kolomela, Los Bronces expansion and Barro Alto ramped up well. Within 5 months of commissioning, Los Bronces expansion achieved 86% of capacity utilisation.Kolomela which was completed in December, 5 months ahead of schedule, has achieved almost 80% of capacity utilisation. Whilst we are seeing good progress with our projects, a number of our operations faced interruptions since the start of the year including inclement weather.In addition, existing mines are facing grade declines and increasing waste stripping.
In our last result presentation, we highlighted that normalised inflationary pressure for 2011 was around five percent.Typically falling input prices will lag cost reduction. However, we are continuing to face sustained inflationary pressures particularly around labour and electricity in South Africa and Chile, as well as high oil prices.We will continue to take action to mitigate these costs pressure through our asset optimisation and supply chain initiatives. To further maximise value, we have launched a commercial operating model, based on a co-ordinated global marketing approach, with centres in Singapore and London.
I now turn to some of the challenges faced by the industry and how we approach cash flow allocation.While in the short term there continues to be uncertainty in the global economy, particularly in Europe, I remain optimistic about the long-term outlook for Anglo American’s diversified mix of commodities.Looking at the left side of the page, you will see that Anglo American has the most diversified and balanced portfolio in the industry.We are well positioned in iron ore and met coal to take advantage of short term upswing in pricing.And the portfolio is equally well positioned to benefit from late cycle commodities such as platinum and diamonds.We believe as development in emerging countries shifts from investment to consumption, growth rates in steel consumption will moderate, while platinum and diamonds demand will benefit.Despite China’s slowdown and structural adjustment towards a consumption driven economy, its inland provinces, are experiencing and will continue to experience double-digit growth.In India, a growing middle class and rising disposable incomes should continue to drive demand for coal, diamonds and platinum group metals. In the emerging countries overall, we expect sustained growth driven by increasing living standards.
But where there is risk, there is also opportunity. What sets us apart is our leadership in sustainable mining.I believe the best way to drive value in a challenging and evolving landscape is to conduct ourselves to the highest standards and to build strong partnerships with our stakeholders including governments, trade unions and local communities.Mining companies that demonstrate genuine commitment to promoting the development and well-being of their host communities, and to engaging in frank dialogue and partnership with stakeholders, are better positioned to access high quality resources.Our leadership in social and sustainable development has been recognised once again by Business in the Community, the UK’s leading benchmark of corporate responsibility. We are the only mining company to achieve the top Platinum ranking and we have now done so for three years running.We have taken the view that supporting the communities in which we operate and plan to operate through sustainable contributions is the only way to secure and maintain our licence to operate.
Our ability to optimise the development of our Tier 1 assets is also crucial.Barro Alto, Los Bronces, Kolomela showcase our ability to build large, complex projects.This slide is an example of what we are doing to standardise our project management in Met Coal.This standardised approach will enable us to deliver our projects efficiently and effectively.
Finally,consolidating control of De Beers gives us additional exposure to late development cycle demand.We expect demand to significantly outperform mine supply in the long term. De Beers is a recognised global leader in the exploration, mining, distribution, and sales and marketing of diamonds.They have the largest diamond resource and reserve position in the world, including the world’s richest diamond mine, JwanengThere is significant potential from leading pipeline of greenfield and brownfield projects within De Beers.It is well placed to benefit from the growth in diamond demand.
In a world of diminishing Tier One assets, our world class exploration approach truly gives us a competitive edge.Since 1999, we have made 15 major discoveries and have received international recognition for Los Sulfatos and Sakatti.Sakatti is a porphyry deposit of high quality copper, nickel, PGMs and cobalt, and forms part of our tenements covering more than 800 square kilometres. The deposit is within a stone’s throw of world class infrastructure, and sits in an existing mining region. Our drilling has yet to determine the extent of the deposit towards the North, the South, and the West as well as the depth of the deposit.As with all projects, we will work through the relevant environmental approvals. This will take at least two to three years.
We have a reasonable view of future cash flows taking into consideration the uncertainty on macro conditions and many challenges I have highlighted earlier.It is important that we take that into consideration as we take prudent measures to manage our portfolio.This is to ensure that we are well positioned to deliver shareholder value and returns through the cycleIn Platinum, we are embarking on a review to assess the optimal configuration of the Platinum portfolio.We will do this with a single purpose in mind, maximising medium to long term margins and returns.We expect to complete the review by the end of the year.In 2010, we set a clear dividend policy to maintain our base dividend through the cycle. We are committed to the promise of paying the base dividend from operating cash flow.While we have not changed our approach to cash allocation, we recognise that cash flow will be impacted by short term uncertainty, a weaker US dollar, higher capital and operating costs.On the other hand, as our approved growth projects are delivered and completed projects ramp up, our financial flexibility will improve.With that in mind, we continue to take a discipline approach to allocate cash in the most efficient way, ensuring that surplus cash will be returned to shareholders be it in the form of a special dividend or other measures.
