Long-term PGM supply appraisal

In-depth PGM supply analysis from experts

SFA (Oxford) can provide an evaluation on future supply risk from mines and projects around the world, and the economic cost of production. We can supply you with historical PGM production and supply forecasts out to 2050 by mine, for PGM products, probable and possible projects including tonnes milled and head grade. We can build a full picture of investment appeal using project incentive pricing per metal and give a detailed strategic assessment of PGM supply within both today and tomorrow’s operating environment against other global industry players and projects (majors and juniors). A multitude of factors is appraised spanning asset quality, investment appeal, value creation, future industry challenges and risks to projects going forward. SFA is highly experienced in analysing future production profiles and quantifying the long-term market impacts to the industry. Let us help you support your investment decision making and strategic optionality.
