Access a detailed view on the flow of base metal concentrates and intermediate products

Our Metals Concentrates Services are an invaluable resource to identify market opportunities, threats and evaluate commercial terms while pinpointing concentrates with specific assay criteria.

Use them to identify future capacity for feed sources within global concentrate supply/demand balances, strengthen contract negotiations with reliable short, medium and long-term treatment costs and refining cost forecasting, understand smelting and refining dynamics and benchmark treatment costs and refining cost charges, assess and mitigate risk in selling concentrates where there are no terminal markets and monitor competitor strategies and benchmark against peers.

Driven by our close relationships with market participants, the services deliver unique in-depth analysis, underpinned by our comprehensive, objective data, providing a detailed view on the flow of base metal concentrates from mine to smelters, and intermediate products to refineries.
