London, United Kingdom (7th February 2013) – CRU, independent commodity industry analysts and management consultants in the global metals, mining and fertilizer industries, have released a new base metals cost service.
The exclusive service gives a detailed breakdown of mining costs for all assets around the world which produce copper, nickel, lead and zinc for the years 2007-2025. The metals and by-products covered in the service are copper, nickel, lead, zinc, cobalt, molybdenum, gold, silver, PGMs, and sulphuric acid.
CRU claim that the service will enable one to review and compare costs, flex data, understand the Chinese market, benchmark specific cost parameters, enjoy genuine flexing capability, securely input your own data, and analyse one consistent view of the world’s base metals.
All datasets, cost curves and charts can be downloaded to Microsoft Excel for further examination and any data inputted by the user remains 100% secure for their use only. Quarterly updates will also be provided by CRU’s in-house Economics Team to ensure the data is up-to-date.
CRU’s Paul Robinson, Director Multi Commodity Projects, said: “We are pleased to announce the release of our new base metals cost service that should allow a comprehensive and detailed look at the various base metals markets. We have an experienced and knowledgeable team who are experts in their relative markets and have put together this service to offer customers the most detailed coverage possible. This allows you to undertake detailed analysis and flex cost curves for the entire global industry or just for particular countries and regions. We believe this is the most comprehensive service of its kind and is available for a very competitive cost.”
