Assessing the mineral processing value chain
SFA (Oxford) can deliver advanced mineral processing assessments of new offtake and PGM-containing materials into existing PGM industry smelting, base metals and precious metals refining facilities. This report identifies the available mineral processing options and provides a high-level depiction of global PGM mineral processing capacities, plant utilisation rates, and mine to refined metal value chain analytics. We can also provide estimated capacities for international secondary PGM refineries. Our analysis offers a valuable assessment for the sale and toll of the different PGM-containing products at the various positions in the value chain and the impact of moving up and down the value chain with these products.
