16 Th Sydney Morning Herald, Tuesday, April 20, 1976 FINANCE AND BUSINESS Copper producers winning slight reprieve as prices rise Negotiate sales of upgraded uranium now AEC chief LME COPPER Since it hit a low point of f 497.50 on January 22 of last year, the LME price has now recovered by 66.3 per cent in sterling terms, or 40.1 per cent in Australian dollar terms. But it is still a far cry from the April 1, 1974, all-time peak of 1,400 a tonne (then equivalent to $2,255), which produced record profits for the copper miners in 1973-74. In addition to the ground lost through the declining pound, Australian producers are still facing formidable pressures from the rise in costs, The key question is how long the present strength in copper will be sustained, since it is the product of sterling's weakness and the central African situation, rather than the result of a-strong revival in demand. There are heavy stocks of copper around the world which will have to move into consumption before producers can look to a solid underpinning to their markets. "The price will have to rise considerably before we start smiling again," said one copper executive. "We are taking a cautfous attitude towards the improvement." Even so, the June half of 1975-76 should be considerably less painful than the December half, when MIM Holdings' Mount Isa mine was probabW the only producer to show a profit on copper. Official statistics show that December half-year exports of refined copper declined by 7.4 per cent to 43,168 tonnes, but their sales value dropped by 223 per cent to $39.3 million, indicating a fall from $1,085 to $910 in the average price a tonne. The export sales tell only part of the story, since there was also a dropped from $76.8 million to $62.3 million. An indication of the extent to which this year's revival in prices has managed to turn the tide should be available soon with the release of figures for the 16 weeks to April 11. Mount Lyell Mining and Railway's December half-year loss on mining operations worsened from $2.9 million to nearly $3.9 million and the company was still operating at a loss in mid-February. Mt Lyell's chairman, Sir Brian Massy-Greene, said that the future of the company "depends on a significant and sustained rise in the copper price." Feko-Wallsend, which mothballed its Tennant Creek copper mining, milling and smelting operations early in February, 1975, lifted its December half-year net profit from $2.35 million to $3.64 million after an future tax benefit of $180,049. This means Colortone has claimed future tax benefits of $295,049 in the past 18 months. However, the group has yet to use all of the tax losses incurred in the 1970-71 financial year, which run out in 1977-78. In 1970-71, Colortone incurred a loss of $335,568 after a tax provision of $30,000. In 1971-72, a small $22,999 profit was earned after no tax and another small profit was earned in 1972-73. Presumably, Colortone used some of the tax losses from 1970-71 to offset the small taxable income of the two-year period 1971-73. In 1973-74, Colortone incurred a small loss of $11,730 which was struck after a tax provision of $65,729 despite the accumulated losses. impressive . cost-saving program. However, its Mount Morgan copper mine in central Queensland appeared to have lost about $1.5 million in the December half before measures were taken to stem the losses. BH South'j wholly owned Cobar mine increased its December half-year loss from $1.67-million to $2.14 million, while the loss for the same period by its 51 per cent owned Kanmantoo mine increased from $1.11 million to $1.57 million. BH South is now increasing its ore throughput at Cobar from 500,000 to 600,000 tonnes a year, but is retrenching more workers and is mothballing its Kanmantoo mine by the end of June. CSR's Mount Gunson mine in South Australia and Consolidated Gold Fields Australia's Gunpowder mine in north Queensland also incurred unspecified losses for the December half. . The June half-year revival in prices is unlikely to wipe out the December half-year copper . losses for Mount Lyell, BH South, CSR or CGFA, but it will make their survival more bearable until the expected upturn in the market. Copper has always been the least predictable of all metals because of its . vulnerability to political . Influences. But past experience shows that it usually tends to tag behind in any economic recovery. , When the recovery comes, it could be gradual rather than spectacular. Although little- new capacity has been added in the past 18 months, a recovery in demand would tend .to be absorbed by restoration of idle capacity such as Peko-Wallsend's Tennant Creek and BH South's Kanmantoo operations to prevent any wide imbalance between consumption and supply. producing 10 per cent of the diffusion means contracts must be reasonably firm well into the future. "On this basis, enrichment sales negotiations would need to commence almost immediately if Australia is to have a diffusion plant in operation in 1986, or a centrifuge plant in operation in 1984." Dr Warner said the basis for a major uranium industry in Australia had been established by discoveries of uranium resources and the priority should now be given to mining and milling. He said that, if by 1990 Australia produced 30,000 tonnes of yellow-cake and if all wero converted to UF6 for export or to be fed to an enrichment plant, the revenue of the industry could be more than $1,010 million a year in today's values. NEW Guinea Goldfields Ltd has been slow in reporting for the December half-year but not so slow in doing business. The company notified the Sydney Stock Exchange that its half-year report would not come out for at least another two weeks because of staff changes. It also advised that there was no firm date, except after July 1, for payment of 4c per share dividend declared in December. However, the company has acquired 80 per cent of the issued share capital of PAR Sales Pty Ltd and PAR Retreads Pty Ltd, trading in Port Moresby, for $256,000 in the meantime. It is the payment for these shares that is delaying the December dividend. Kemper plans the introduction of highly protected risk insurance By THE FINANCIAL EDITOR Australian copper producers are winning in the tug-of-war between rising London Metal Exchange prices and the continuing drift in sterling. But for most of the industry, the victory merely means a lessening in the rate of December half-year losses, rather than a return to profitability. The London Metal Exchange closed for the Easter recess with copper at a 20-month high of stg827.50 a tonne to put it 42.5 per cent ahead of the 1975 closing level of stg580.50. Because of the drift in sterling, the gain in Australian dollars has been trimmed back to a 32.2 per cent rise from $935.38 to $1,237.85 a tonne. "creeping devaluation," rather than make a single large drop in the value of the currency. AUSTRALIS Mining NL believes it is unwise to resume operations at the A 1 Gold Mine at Gaffney's Creek because of a shortage of funds. The group had unsuccessfully applied to the Victorian Government for a loan or a grant. Directors said yesterday the group has been able to arrange for the mine to be kept in working order. TOUR Finance Ltd, of the Rene Lipton group of companies, boosted earnings 144 per cent in the half-year to December 31. Net profit was $100,000, compared with $41,000 in the previous corresponding period, after interest paid on borrowings fell 30 per cent from $304,000 to $214,000. Australia should be negotiating sales for upgraded uranium in the mid-1980s, according to Dr R. K. War-ner, the Australian Atomic Energy Com- - .mission's chief of pro-eduction. Giving the second Es-' sington Lewis Memorial ... Lecture in Adelaide, Dr "'Warner said there was a .'"need for new conversion . .-facilities to be operating '- "by the mid-1980s because . .' expected world produc-.tion of uranium hcxa-:" fluoride would be 45,000 : 'tonnes short of require- ' - 'Tments.

", ' The conversion or "upgrading" of uranium oxide (vellowcake) to ' ' UF6 adds about 7 per cent to the value of uranium. ... Dr Warner said a con- " "version plant would need a minimum capacity of ' about 5,000 tonnes of uranium a year and ..would cost about $30-. 'million using 1975 values. "By the mid-1980s, it 'would not be unreasonable to expect that one or - two such plants might by ; . 'operating in Australia." However, he said this '-would ultimately be a , ..commercial decision and '; would need to involve "chemical manufacturing 'companies and the pro-' "ducers of yellowcake. Dr Warner emphasised ...that UF6, which has become an item of com-.' merce itself, can be produced independently of the uranium enrichment process. But Dr Warner added that Australia should be " negotiating sales of enriched uranium now, if it is to have an enrichment ', ..plant operating by the "mid-1980s, when there . '.'will be a world shortfall "of uranium. ..V." "K is expected that in "'1985, the production , capacity (of uranium) in -the US will be perhaps no more than 80 per cent of domestic require-r 'ments," he said.

The tool known as highly protected risk (HPR) insurance actually means the reverse of what it implies; that is, higher premiums. Through HPR, companies pay lower premiums for normal cover, which is achieved by meeting stringent standards laid down by the insurer and, in a sense, maintained by him. Until now, there has . been only one company handling such insurance, but it has now been joined by another Kemper Insurance Co Ltd, the Australian subsidiary of the US-based insurance underwriter, Kemper International Insurance Co. Kemper has written this kind of insurance in the past in Australia, but only connected with US companies with which it had previous business and which expanded operations into Australia. But the company has MR RENE UPTON'S Colortone Holdings is persisting with the controversial tax-effect accounting technique. Colortone today reported a big lift in its December half operating loss from 194,000 to $270,000. But the company has claimed a future income tax benefit from the loss of $115,000 ($82,000 previously) to reduce the reported after-tax loss to $155,000 ($112,000). In the full 1974-75 financial year, Colortone reported a loss, including extraordinary items, of $365,000 after claiming a wi-aw DD PC WU (End erf month lev) J 700 600 1978 1976 sharp drop in demand on the domestic market where prices are also linked to LME averages. The damage wrought by this decline at a time of rising costs was widespread and considerable. The effect on major producers was: MIM Holdings, which derives about half of its sales income from copper, suffered a 73.2 per cent slump to $9.3 million in net earnings for the 24 weeks to December 21. Its average sales price for copper fell from $1,081 to $937 a tonne and its copper income of local industry that an has so far been almost young engineers and the successful candidates will be sent to the US for a training course lasting several years, after which they will be qualified for lucrative and growth-orientated careers. The engineers employed are the keys to the operation. Any company buying the insurance is visited by them and they will lay down the conditions under which the lower premiums will be granted. The drawback is that this will almost certainly involve a substantial capital expense, involving such things as extensive fire-sprinkling systems and ongoing (and expensive) security systems. Kemper International president Mr C. F. Aid-rich does not see these necessarily as drawbacks. He points out that while a company can be amply covered for fire damage and loss of profits under normal insurance 45. Ct H Lyoni (19) 36.

It was the 17th devaluation of the Israeli pound since the State was established in 1948, and the eighth since last June when the Government authorised a ministerial committee to devalue the currency every 30 days by no more than 2 per cent, if necessary. A Finance Ministry spokesman said basic food prices were not expected to be affected by the move, while the prices of imported items would not immediately increase. The measure was part of the Government's overall "belt-tightening plan" to cut public spending, reduce imports and increase exports, he said. The spokesman said the Government would continue its policy of THE Mother's Also Contest". ring, the other Its all arrangements, there is no way it can be covered for the inevitable long-term loss of customers. Thus, to be set against the capital expense are not only the lower premiums, but also the continuing services of highly qualified engineers to ensure adequate safety precautions are maintained. This is the most important difference from the existing precautionary moves of orthodox insurance undertakings. A corollary of the technique could also be an increase in industrial efficiency, and it will be interesting to see the response of the local insurance industry to the intensified US-based competition. It is hinted that while Kemper has substantial expertise in the field, it will continue to suffer because of lack of business contacts among home-bred fields, and hence some kind of formal association with an Australian insurer should not be surprising.

But this process will take some years and Kemper is prepared to stand substantial establishment losses for that time. The company's confidence is indicated by the fact that establishment costs are not sjmply those of establishing an office and business contacts. The program also involves extensive training courses for the engineers that the company will employ.
