• Global steel production is surging in 2017

    The price of iron ore reached a 30-month high on Monday, while coking coal is trading 80% higher than this time last year. The rally in the steelmaking raw materials may gain further momentum this year as global steel production kicks off the year on a strong footing. World Steel Association data released on Tuesday, showed a 7% jump in global steel output in January to 136.5 million tonnes. The 50-year old industry body estimates that steel production in China, which is responsible for jus

  • Uranium price rally comes to screeching halt

    Uranium was the glaring exception amid a broad-based rally in metals and minerals in 2016. The price of U3O8 fell 41% in 2016 with the industry tracker UxC's broker average price hitting 12-year lows below $18 per pound in November.  That price compares to an all-time high of nearly $140 a pound reached in June 2007. Then, against expectations, the price started to turn. When top supplier Kazakhstan announced in the second week of January that it's cutting output by 2,000 tonne

  • Zinc’s time to shine

    Zinc was the second-best performing commodity in 2016, with a staggering 65.7% return. The greyish metal primarily used in galvanizing steel is off to a hot start in 2017, up another 12.5% to $1.30/lb. “For us zinc is still the most exciting story out there “ Don Lindsay, President and CEO, Teck (January 26, 2017) The reason for the zinc price rise is one of the basic principles of economics – supply and demand. Zinc inventories (supply) have been falling like a rock. Inventories l

  • Canada losing ground as mining investment destination

    While optimism is slowly but steadily returning to the global mining industry, Canada doesn’t seem to be in a good position to benefit from the increasing number of companies ready to make new and significant investments. At least that is the conclusion from a report released Thursday by the Mining Association of Canada (MAC), which also warns of the possibility of seeing major exploration and mining investments flow offshore. “Very simply, Canada is not as attractive as it used to b

  • Zinc, lead rally bad news for silver price

    Silver futures prices moved higher again on Thursday with March delivery contracts hitting the highest level since November 11 last year.  At $18.09 an ounce, silver is up 11.4% since the start of the year and trading 32% for the better compared to the same time last year.  Silver is now also close to wiping out all its losses since the US presidential election pulled the floor from under precious metals. But a new study suggests the metal's good run may be coming closer to the end. In a resear

  • US solar installations nearly doubled in 2016, and broke some records

    Solar power installations doubled in 2016 over 2015, as more and more areas of the United States began pulling their power from the sun. For the first time, solar power installations formed the largest group of electricity generating capacity of any energy source, according to a new report from Greentech Media. Nearly 40 percent of new power generation projects added last year were solar, in terms of electrical production capacity. A record 22 states each added more than 100 megawatts, the report said.
