Rapid developments in the lithium industry have continued into 2018, as lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery technologies consumed in a range of end-uses drive demand growth and new operations provide additional raw material supplies.
Cobalt is mostly mined as a by-product of copper or nickel with the copper-cobalt sulphide deposits of the Central African Copper belt being the principal source. The DRC dominates global mine production and accounted for roughly 60% of global supply in 2015.
Graphite prices remain high as supply-side shortages combine with growing battery and electrode demand. High flake graphite prices spur new development outside of China Despite some downwards re-adjustment towards the end of 2018, graphite prices remain high, with February prices for 94-97%C fine, medium and large size flake still 17%,… Read more
