Diminishing concentrates: what options are there for zinc smelters?

Report summary

As we enter 2017, it appears that the global zinc smelting industry is on the brink of, but could well be in the midst of, a shortage of zinc concentrates. Key mines have closed and key players in the mining industry have put mines onto care and maintenance leading to a lack of global supply.  Already spot treatment charges have collapsed in China with a number of smelters announcing production cuts.
