In addition, the report also provides detailed analysis of development projects in the mining industry, segregated by country, commodity, and company and development capital expenditure for leading miners.

Development of COVID-19 vaccines and improving economic outlook reduced the attractiveness of gold as a safe heaven in Q1 2021. Overall, gold prices averaged US$1,638.6/oz in Q1 2021, down by 4.1% versus the previous quarter. The development project momentum dropped from 1.5% in Q4 2020 to 1.04% in Q1 2021, a fifth consecutive fall, mainly due to COVID-19. Only 28 mineral projects advanced in Q1 2021, down from 40 projects in Q4 2020 and 61 during Q3 2020. Although, the development pace in Australia declined, it still accounted for one fourth of the development.
