Solomon Begins Exploration in Mongolia

Vancouver, Canada, June 24, 2021 - Solomon Resources Ltd (SRB:TSX-V) has opened an office in Mongolia and started exploration programs for gold and copper. The initial program will explore the Bayantsagaan Gold Project, located 35 km southwest of the Boroo Gold Mine. The project is 2 km west of a paved highway and 100 km northwest of Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. The project covers an area of 5,648 hectares, and has excellent infrastructure and access. Solomon can earn a minimum 80% interest in Bayantsagaan, and 19 additional projects, from Gallant Minerals Ltd.

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) June 26, 2021 -- Solomon Resources Ltd (SRB:TSX-V) has opened an office in Mongolia and started exploration programs for gold and copper. The initial program will explore the Bayantsagaan Gold Project, located 35 km southwest of the Boroo Gold Mine. The project is 2 km west of a paved highway and 100 km northwest of Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. The project covers an area of 5,648 hectares, and has excellent infrastructure and access. Solomon can earn a minimum 80% interest in Bayantsagaan, and 19 additional projects, from Gallant Minerals Ltd.

Gold mineralization was identified at Bayantsagaan in 1988, by a joint Mongolian-Hungarian geological expedition. The central target area contains gold mineralization exposed on an east-west trending ridge, which is flanked to the north and south by alluvium-filled drainages with reported gold placer deposits. Gold mineralization is hosted by granitic rocks with silica-sericite-sulphide alteration. Gallant geologists identified the property and collected surface rock samples in 2000, and the property was acquired in 2003. Surface rock chip sampling by Gallant has reported values up to 24 g/t gold and visible gold has been collected on the property. The style of alteration and mineralization at Bayantsagaan is consistent with the reduced intrusionrelated class of gold deposits, and is similar to the Boroo Gold Mine (operated by Centerra Gold, 10.2 Mmt @ 3.52 g/t Au, 1.16 M oz).

Historic geophysical surveys identified a chargeability anomaly, reflecting >1% disseminated sulphide, which coincides with strong gold and arsenic geochemical anomalies. The strong coincident anomalies extend south and west beneath alluvial cover. The main, exposed anomaly is about 600 meters wide (EW) and 900 meters long (NS). The Mongolian – Hungarian expedition completed one east-west fence of drill holes, north of (outside) the coincident geophysical and geochemical anomalies. Four vertical diamond drill holes, spaced across 400 meters were completed. Drill cores are not available, however drill logs reported alteration and mineralization extending from surface to the ends of the holes, at depths ranging from 109 – 193 meters. Historic assays results were highly anomalous in gold but have not been confirmed with modern analyses. Gold values correlate strongly with sulphide content and altered fault zones.

Solomon will complete ground magnetics surveys and gradient array IP/resistivity surveys, over a five square kilometre area. The program is intended to confirm the locations of sulphide concentrations, breccias and silicification associated with gold mineralization. The survey will be completed by mid-July, and drilling will commence thereafter.

Research and Markets : Insight to Gold Production in Mongolia

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c19801) has announced the addition of Gold Mining in Mongolia to their offering.

Dublin (PRWEB) June 26, 2021 -- Gold production in Mongolia has seen spectacular growth over the last few years, rising steadily from 0.8 tonnes in 1991 and peaking at 13.7 tonnes in 2001. This seventeen-fold rise contrasts with western world production, which has grown by around 15% over the same period, with an increase of less than 1% each year from 1999 to 2001.

Since 2001, however, production in Mongolia has fallen back to around 12 tonnes per annum in spite of the gold price recovery, indicating problems with the quality and sustainability of currently producing placer deposits and a lack of new reserves to replace depletions. Mongolia's gold comes primarily from placer deposits, with nothing significant yet being produced from hard-rock.

Research and Markets : The Gold Mining Industry In Brazil Is Currently Emerging From a Phase of Marked Consolidation

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c19803) has announced the addition of Gold Mining in Brazil to their offering.

(PRWEB) June 26, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c19803) has announced the addition of Gold Mining in Brazil to their offering.


Produced in collaboration with local industry experts, Gold Mining in Brazil not only outlines both historic and expected future levels of formal and garimpo mine production, but also describes the top domestic and international gold producing companies and exploration companies, licensing procedures and the current tax regime.

Essential reading for both foreign mining majors and juniors, as well as banks and investors considering an approach to the Brazilian gold mining sector.

The report also includes a list of key industry contacts.

The gold mining industry in Brazil is currently emerging from a phase of marked consolidation - gold production in the country during this period of contraction has fallen from a peak of over 100 tonnes in 1989 to reach an estimated 43 tonnes in 2003.

The explanation behind the dramatic cut in the country's output is twofold. Firstly, and most importantly, has been the steep decline measured within the informal sector. Alluvial output from the so-called garimpo areas of Brazil has declined on average by over 10% per annum for the last 14 years. This has largely been due to; the decline of the real gold price; urban migration as the Brazilian economy has matured; tighter environmental legislation; increased lawlessness in garimpo areas and the depletion of the highest grade and most accessible ores.

Timing of Foreign investment into the country and the gold price environment
The lack of projects in the development pipeline, in part, reflects Brazil’s poor investment climate during the early 1990s. A new constitution marking the transition to civilian rule in 1988, for instance, restricted direct foreign ownership in the sector, whilst high corporate taxes did little to attract new investment from abroad.

An amendment to the constitution in 1995 and the reduction in corporate tax in 1996 from 43% to 15% (plus an additional 10% when applicable) were welcome changes but unfortunately coincided with the start of a prolonged bear market, which saw gold prices decline for seven successive years. As a result, global gold mining investment stalled.

A new wave of investment built on exploration success
Whilst the investment climate outlined above clearly inhibited activity from new players, established producers in the country, such as AngloGold Brazil (now AngloGold Ashanti), Rio Tinto Brazil and CVRD, continued to develop their operations and explore new ground and in so doing, generated a handful of new gold projects. For strategic reasons the bulk of these prospects were offered onto the market, which coupled with the improved gold price has attracted a new wave of investment into the country.

Security of tenure and informal mining
In the past, a fly in the ointment of investing in Brazil has been concern over potential conflicts with small-scale alluvial miners (garimpeiros). Although still a sensitive issue, strict environmental controls and severe policing have much reduced the problems associated with uncontrolled garimpo mining.

Opportunities for further exploration success
The investment hiatus in exploration and mine development in Brazil during the 1990s coupled with the declining gold price has resulted in a dramatic reduction in gold mine production in the country. This does not reflect the potential in the ground. Indeed, the favorable geology, political stability, improving economic situation and well developed mining culture make Brazil an attractive country for new mining investment.

Research and Markets : To Many Foreign-Based Gold Producers China Represents a New Frontier

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c19805) has announced the addition of Gold Mining in China to their offering.

Dublin (PRWEB) June 26, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c19805) has announced the addition of Gold Mining in China to their offering.

Produced in collaboration with local industry experts, Gold Mining in China covers the recent deregulation of the mining industry, production by major mines, and stock exchange flotations of mining companies.

Essential reading for both foreign mining majors and juniors, as well as banks and investors considering an approach to the complex, but rich, Chinese gold mining sector.

The report also includes a list of key industry contacts.

China's gold mine production reached a record 213 tonnes in 2003 , but this amount is still insufficient to satisfy the demand for gold for jewellery and industry which is running at around 250-300 tonnes a year. Some estimates suggest that China's demand for gold may reach 600 tonnes a year within the decade.

The shortfall will need - as in the past - to be met by imports. The mining industry is fragmented (though being reorganised), with many small mines, where pollution and safety are major issues. Even the larger mines produce a maximum of only a few tonnes. Exploration has been impeded by the re-organisation of the industry. Investment by foreign companies has been sporadic and small – the mining majors have yet to commit

Main Highlights
China has now had a decade of reform in the gold mining sector. After a recent pause, foreign exploration companies are now returning to China in large numbers, and there have also been some large-scale and exciting new finds. There are considerable opportunities: China’s domestic gold mining remains small scale and would benefit from foreign assistance, particularly in the area of deep mining. Environmental concerns are also becoming more pressing with widespread pollution, and this is another area where foreign expertise would be of assistance.

Furthermore domestic production has perhaps peaked at around 200 tonnes a year, but demand could easily reach 600 tonnes in the next decade. The implication is clear: either China steps up exploitation of its own resources (with or without foreign capital and technology), or it may be obliged to import large amounts of bullion.

The position is already shifting: the market has already been thrown open with the flotation of major Chinese gold mines, both on the Shanghai and Hong Kong stock exchanges. At the same time the major foreign banks and funds have been permitted to take up “A” shares, previously restricted to Chinese nationals.

This Report looks at the rapidly developing gold mining sector in China, and the sometimes difficult administrative environment. It examines the strategies of the successive waves of foreign juniors, and the more restrained approaches of the gold majors. This is the first serious attempt to take an overall view of Chinese official strategy, and to measure the challenges.

To many foreign-based gold producers China represents a new frontier. Moreover, to a handful of the major producers the exploitation of gold resources in the country and within the wider Asian region as a whole is regarded as vital if current levels of mine production are to be maintained. The gold producing belts of North America and Australia, amongst others, are maturing, and to replace the existing reserve base new finds will have to supplement the (limited number) of success stories emerging from parts of Central and South America. One of the ways for majors to participate in exploration success is to enter at the grass roots level by taking a position in a junior “vehicle” with options to earn into any major finds. Included in Gold Mining in China, is a comprehensive list and status summary of 36 junior exploration companies currently active in the country.

Copper Sulfate Treatments for Lakes Threaten Visitors and Wildlife

Treating lakes with copper sulfate can get rid of blue-green algae, but it is expensive, laborious and potentially harmful to people and wildlife.

(PRWEB) June 21, 2021 -- Until recently, treating lake waters with copper sulfate was accepted as an expensive and laborious method of killing blue-green algae. But after years of pouring innumerable tons of such copper compounds into lakes throughout North America, the use of these herbicides has proved to be hazardous endangering lake habitats, wildlife, and people who use those waters. Fortunately, a growing number of states have banned copper treatment of lake waters. Also, agencies such as EPA and OSHA have begun educating the public about the hazards of such usage.

Small, “trace” amounts of the element copper are essential for good health in humans. However, exposure to greater quantities can be very harmful – even fatal. Copper sulfate is toxic to people as well as animals and numerous forms of marine life. In people, unsafe exposure to this herbicide may affect the liver, kidneys and gastrointestinal tract. Swimmers with a history of chronic respiratory or skin disease may be at increased risk, in addition to headaches plus irritation of the eyes, nose and mouth from exposure to copper compounds in water.

Moreover, long periods of copper treatments have increased blue-green algae resistance. In such cases higher concentrations of copper treatments may be required, correspondingly increasing the risks of hazardous exposure.

Also, spreading copper treatments within permissible concentrations across a lake is problematic, due to currents and irregularities in water depths. In some instances, copper treatments cause very high toxicity in portions of a lake.

A Cost-Effective, Non-Toxic Solution
Due to all the health and economic problems associated with stagnant water and chemical treatments, the use of water circulators for cleaning up and maintaining lakes and reservoirs has gained remarkable interest in recent years.

"If you can create sufficient circulation, blue-green algae problems and other unwanted water conditions can be avoided or even corrected," says Joel Bleth, president of Pump Systems, Inc. (PSI), Dickinson, ND. "Sufficient water circulation will minimize or eliminate the need for chemical and carbon treatments because it prevents this type of algae takeover."

To provide reliable and flexible circulation, PSI developed SolarBee™, a floating self-contained system for use in lakes and reservoirs. Powered by solar modules, a single SolarBee unit can draw up to 10,000 gallons of water per minute and spread it gently across the surface for continuous aeration 24-hours per day. The system's mixing action prevents the takeover of blue-green algae and promotes a good crop of diatoms and green algae ("good algae"), zooplankton and dissolved oxygen.

The ability of this water treatment technology to effectively control problematic blue-green algae blooms by habitat disruption – rather than copper sulfate – has been well documented. In numerous applications these circulators virtually eliminated the high costs of copper treatments. Also, water clarity was often greatly improved, sediments reduced, and fish populations improved.

Steel Goes ‘Off the Net’ in China

Access to world steel news and information portal www.steelonthenet.com apparently blocked in China.

London, UK (PRWEB) June 21, 2021 -- June 21st 2005 Steelonthenet.com, the international iron and steel industry news and information portal, regrets to announce that access to its website appears to have been blocked in China. Repeated reports from webmasters and site visitors attempting to access the site from servers in Shanghai and Beijing in recent weeks indicate a persistent denial of access that has not been evident elsewhere in the world. These access problems seem to have commenced around April 2005.

Commenting on these restrictions, CEO Andrew M Kotas said, “Control of the internet in China is a phenomenon that has been widely reported on in the last few years. Most recent assessments however have suggested a censorship trend towards more targeted internet filtering, focused in the main on silencing Taiwanese independence movements, pro-democracy or anti-communist groups, human rights activists or other political opponents.”

Adds Kotas “Steelonthenet.com is a knowledge-sharing information portal that generates revenue from industry research and consultancy support. The business has no political agenda. Indeed, its success is predicated on its commercial focus and on the website’s supply of timely and objective news, reports and statistics from a broad range of distinct and independent information sources.”

Concludes Kotas “If communication is the lifeblood of business then commercial news censorship must be the first step to industrial decline. We therefore hope that the prohibition of www.steelonthenet.com we are witnessing today is not an early signal of broader censorship by the Chinese authorities but instead, simply a temporary consequence of mistaken or perhaps just overzealous blocking.”

Moto Goldmines Limited (ASX:MTO) Listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange with Strong Investor Support Says CEO Klaus Eckhof

Moto Goldmines Limited (ASX:MTO), an Australian-based junior explorer has now listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange with a secondary listing on the Australian Stock Exchange Says CEO Klaus Eckhof.

(PRWEB) June 17, 2021 -- Moto Goldmines Limited (ASX:MTO), an Australian-based junior explorer has now listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange with a secondary listing on the Australian Stock Exchange Says CEO Klaus Eckhof.

Following shareholder approval, Moto Goldmines Limited completed a merger with the Canadian-based King Products Inc and the merged entity is now listed on the Toronto Exchange (TSX:MGL) and has a new code on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX:MOE).

"Already we’ve had considerable investor support in the North American market and this has given us the confidence to pursue our vision of maximizing shareholder value through the discovery of substantial, high grade gold deposits in Central Africa," said Klaus Eckhof, Moto Goldmines Executive Director.

The company is conducting an extensive exploration programme in the Haut-Congo province in the north east of the Democratic Republic of Congo and has indicated resources of seven million tonnes at 2.7 grams per tonne gold for 600,000 ounces Au and inferred resources of 55.5Mt at 2.9 g/t Au for 5,210,000 ozs Au.

"Moto is now a wholly owned subsidiary of King providing the necessary corporate structure to provide ongoing funding to develop the Moto project," Mr Eckhof said.

The Democratic Republic of Congo has a long history of gold mining and was the world’s fifth largest gold producer in the 1960’s.

"While the region may be perceived as high political risk, we see a new dawn for the Congo as one of the last frontiers in modern exploration and mining and aim to operate at all times with a high social, environmental and ethical awareness," Mr Eckhof said.

Moto is undertaking an extensive drilling programme focused on identifying substantial gold resources in this under explored but highly prospective gold province.

Batman Begins Premieres with LuminOre Coatings

Movie premiere for Batman Begins uses advanced protective metal coatings by LuminOre® Inc. for full effect. The 43-foot-long, iron bat sculpture was created with a thin layer of iron actually sprayed in place using LuminOre's patented process.

Vista, CA (PRWEB) June 12, 2021 -- Gotham and the world have eagerly awaited the new, big-money movie, Batman Begins, and, by all accounts, no one will be disappointed. Special effect artists, set designers and producers have paid close attention to every visual detail and have created some spectacular effects and mood-enhanced environments with highly advanced composite metal coatings from LuminOre Inc. of Vista, Calif.

One of the grandest displays of LuminOre’s new metal coating technology is the 43-foot-long, iron bat sculpture on display at the movie’s London premiere in Leicester Square. Looming high above the ‘red carpet’ at the Odeon cinema and crafted by Herck Metal Europe of The Netherlands — a regional European training and distribution facility for the patented LuminOre® process — the massive bat emblem is not the multi-ton construct that it appears, but actually a lightweight substrate covered in LuminOre iron.

”We’re very excited to be a part of the Batman Begins opening, and Herck Metal Europe has done an outstanding job in producing a fantastic centerpiece for the premiere,” says Tom Valente, founder and president of LuminOre Inc. “Just like architects and interior designers, the entertainment industry and set designers very often need unique applications in metals and metal alloys to achieve a desired look or appearance, and LuminOre is a perfect, cost-efficient solution. Our patented, cold-sprayable process allows a thin layer of metal to be applied over any substrate, in virtually any configuration or design. Therefore, our customers can easily deliver a custom metal surface to create unique architectural environments and decorative pieces.”

LuminOre’s sprayable metal finishes are revolutionizing the way the world works with metal, and they have been embraced by billion-dollar resorts, such as the Wynn Las Vegas and The Bellagio, and provided countless uses in industrial and marine environments. LuminOre’s composite metals spray onto virtually any surface using conventional HVLP spray equipment, and are available in aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, iron, nickel-silver, stainless steel, X-metal and Z3. The result is a protective coating that is anti-corrosive, non-conductive of electricity and withstands the harshest of environments.

“LuminOre looks, feels and acts just like hot-cast metal, yet no heat is required during the application process,” adds Valente. “From foam to fiberglass, LuminOre metal composite coatings adhere to almost any surface and possess most of the characteristics of a cast metal, including texture, luster and heat conductivity.”

The much celebrated prequel to the four previous Batman films from Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher, Batman Begins opens in the United States on 15 June and in the United Kingdom on 19 June. The movie had its world premiere in Japan on 31 May.

Headquartered in Vista, Calif., LuminOre® Inc. is a specialist in composite metal finishes. LuminOre’s patented, cold-metalizing process seamlessly applies to almost any surface, giving the look of solid metal casting without the weight and expense. In addition to highly specialized effects in furniture, design, construction and architecture, the extremely versatile LuminOre applications provide long-term protection for chemical tanks, potable water storage, industrial facilities and in harsh marine environments.

Breakthrough in Laser Scale Removal as Chemical Methods, Inc. Proves Revolutionary Non-Sulfuric Acid Laser Scale Chemistry

The increasing popularity of laser cutting and welding of metal parts prior to the painting process is causing problems for finishers. Using a laser to cut metal creates a difficult to remove oxide scale on the metal. As the use of lasers in the metalworking industry has grown, this scale produced during the laser cutting process has become one of the most widely encountered inorganic soils in the metal finishing industry. Historically laser scale removal chemicals have been based upon sulfuric acid, which removes the scale but causes side effect problems. Chemical Methods has developed a laser scale remover that does not use sulfuric acid.

(PRWEB) June 9, 2021 -- “The oxide layer formed during the laser cutting process manifests itself as a loosely adhering scale that easily chips and cracks from the metal surface upon impact. Therefore, its removal is necessary before painting. Otherwise, adhesion failure, customer complaints and warranty claims will result,” said Tom Fabek, VP Sales & Marketing.

The removal of laser oxide scale can be accomplished by mechanical means such as paying workers to use grinding wheels or abrasive blasting, but they are often expensive and inefficient. Using specialty chemicals in automated spray wash systems to remove laser oxide scale requires more up-front planning, but pays significant dividends in terms of efficiency, product quality, lower total product life cycle costs and increased profits.

“Laser oxide scale removal products that are composed mostly of sulfuric acid are extremely aggressive. They remove the laser scale but a negative side effect is that the sulfuric acid often causes damage to the tunnel washers. To address this problem, we have developed an effective laser scale cleaner that does not contain any sulfuric acid,” said Dan Gaba, Technical Director of Chemical Methods.

Now in its 35th year, Chemical Methods is a leader in developing and marketing innovative surface treatment chemicals, metalworking fluids and corrosion inhibitors. The company is headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio. More information about the company and its capabilities is available at our web site www.chemicalmethods.com or call 1-216-476-8400.

Environmental Concerns Prompt Ink Manufacturer to Install DCF Filter

Progressive Ink manufactures printing inks for flexible packaging, such as snack packaging, milk cartons and bread bags. In the St. Louis, Missouri manufacturing facility, pressurized bag filters used in the fill area were generating a lot of waste. During a batch run, up to twenty filter bags were replaced and thrown away. Progressive Ink was concerned about the large amounts of waste generated and its effect on the environment. There were other problems too. Occasionally, a bag would rupture and contaminate the ink being processed for shipping. Progressive Ink also experienced variations in the filtering performance of the bags.

(PRWEB) June 9, 2021 -- Situation:
Progressive Ink manufactures printing inks for flexible packaging, such as snack packaging, milk cartons and bread bags. In the St. Louis, Missouri manufacturing facility, pressurized bag filters used in the fill area were generating a lot of waste. During a batch run, up to twenty filter bags were replaced and thrown away. Progressive Ink was concerned about the large amounts of waste generated and its effect on the environment. There were other problems too. Occasionally, a bag would rupture and contaminate the ink being processed for shipping. Progressive Ink also experienced variations in the filtering performance of the bags.

Our Solution:
With few solutions available on the market, Progressive Ink had trouble finding a filter that could filter tight enough to meet the industry requirements of at least 75 micron retention. Their extensive search ended with the Ronningen-Petter Mechanically-Cleaned DCF filter — which offered filtration capabilities well beyond the industry standard. The company installed a DCF-800 filter that filters to 50 micron. It is equipped with pneumatic timers, Teflon®‚ seals, a pneumatic actuator used to move the disc and clean the screen and a purge valve actuator that, when activated, rids the housing of collected debris. Operation of the DCF is easy, and it features a stainless steel pressure-rated housing. The DCF’s filtering screen is specially machined so material will not get wedged into the media surface.

Results:
The DCF filter’s specially machined filtering screen offers concise and consistent particle retention, so Progressive Ink no longer suffers from variations in filtering performance. And, Progressive Ink is able to reprocess its collected waste. Waste collected by the Ronningen-Petter DCF filter is highly concentrated, so that overall purge volume is extremely small. The small amounts of waste collected in the DCF purge chamber are transferred back to the premix tank. Reprocessing rather than disposing of collected waste saves disposal costs and reduces product loss. Progressive Ink is also very pleased with the consistently low differential pressure the DCF filter maintains, and the even throughput levels it provides to the fill line.

Conclusion:
The Ronningen-Petter DCF filter provides environmentally sound filtration while improving the ink’s overall quality. Frank Davis, maintenance superintendent at Progressive Ink said, “We plan to replace all of our bags with DCF filters.”

Zircon Prices Continue to Rise as Demand Exceeds Supply

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18116) has announced the addition of The Economics of Zirconium to their offering.

(PRWEB) June 3, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18116) has announced the addition of The Economics of Zirconium to their offering.

There is a very real risk that demand for zircon could soon be substantially greater than global supply. It has been forecast that the shortfall could be more than 100,000t in 2005 and some industry observers believe that, even if all the planned mineral sands projects come into production over the next ten years, demand will still outstrip supply. If zircon production does not increase to meet the expanding demand, prices will continue to rise to a point where consumers in one or more industries may switch to using alternative materials. Such a shift has taken place before.

In the mid-1980s raw material shortages and spiraling prices led manufacturers of refractories in Japan to permanently substitute alumina spinel for zircon in many applications. The result was a sharp decline in demand for zircon in refractories that has never been reversed.

The last three years have shown a high degree of concentration of corporate control of zircon production. In 2001 the twelve largest producers had a combined output of just over 1Mt, about 80% of the world total. Four corporate groups now effectively control about three quarters of the world's zircon supply: Iluka Resources, Rio Tinto, BHP-Billiton and Anglo American. While more mineral sands projects at various stages of planning and development around the world could do much to restore the supply-demand balance, with a combined potential zircon output of over 500,000tpy, in practice the outlook is less encouraging. Some of the projects, such as Iluka's developments in Australia, are aimed principally at compensating for falling output and do not necessarily represent additional supply.

The key trends, issues and developments in the market are now analysed this report 'The Economics of Zirconium'. It provides a clear insight into all areas of the industry and an authoritative analysis of the prospects for the future.

Steel Consumers Troubled By Decrease in Hot-Rolled and Cold-Rolled Steel Imports

Washington, D.C.—June 2, 2005—Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) President William E. Gaskin expressed concern over the Department of Commerce (DOC) announcement that April imports for hot- and cold-rolled sheets – the raw materials important for steel-consuming companies – decreased from March levels. The DOC reported hot-rolled steel imports for April at 267,000 metric tons (a 13% decrease compared to March) and cold-rolled steel imports at 180,000 metric tons (a one percent decline compared to March levels).

“While overall steel import levels rose by nine percent in April 2005 compared to March 2005, the decrease in hot- and cold-rolled sheets causes concern for the metalforming industry,” said Gaskin. “These are the products most used by PMA members, and it is critically important that they are able to obtain the necessary quantity of steel at globally competitive prices.”

Gaskin continued, “If imports of hot- and cold-rolled steel continue at the same pace of the first four months of this year, the projected total for these imports in 2005 will be nearly 5.5 million metric tons—approximately 11% lower than the 6.2 million metric tons of this material that was imported last year.”

Gaskin explained that last month, dozens of PMA members joined together on Capitol Hill to brief Members of Congress on the problems that steel consumers have experienced with steel supply over the past several years including severe market disruptions after termination of the Section 201 steel tariffs 18 months ago.

“To keep our steel-consuming industry vital and strong, we need access to steel imports. Currently, there are dozens of unnecessary import duties on steel products in place that continue to distort the U.S. market for steel. This is an issue that must be addressed by our elected officials if U.S.-based manufacturers are to compete at a global level.”

The Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) is the full-service trade association representing the $41-billion metalforming industry of North America—the industry that creates precision metal products using stamping, fabricating and other value-added processes. Its nearly 1,200 member companies include metal stampers, fabricators, spinners, slide formers and roll formers as well as suppliers of equipment, materials and services to the industry. Members are located in 30 countries, with the majority found in North America—in 41 states of the United States as well as Canada and Mexico.

Enviro.BLR.com poll of Environmental Professionals Finds American Participation in the Kyoto Global Warming Protocol a Non-issue

It’s ironic, but a majority of environmental professionals said in a recent Enviro.BLR.com survey that the U.S. should have signed the Kyoto global warming treaty after all.

Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) June 2, 2021 -- Environmental professionals, whose employers are being “protected’ by the American decision not to ratify the Kyoto treaty decision on global warming, think that the United States should have ratified the Protocol. That was the result in a recent online poll by Enviro.BLR.com, Making State Environmental Compliance Easier, a Business & Legal Reports, Inc. website.

BLR’s poll asked, “Should the U.S. have ratified the Kyoto Protocol?” Fifty-seven percent of respondents felt that the U.S. should have ratified the treaty. President Bush argued that the Protocol’s requirements would be overly burdensome for the economy, that the exclusion of developing countries like China and India would make greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions ineffective, and that it would tilt the economic playing field against U.S. industry.

In the poll conducted in May 2005 the remaining 43 percent of the 134 respondents agreed that the U.S. made the right decision in opting out.

“American participation in the Kyoto agreement could be viewed as a non-issue,” commented Steve Quilliam, managing editor of Enviro.BLR.com – “Greenhouse gas emission reduction is a global movement. Large U.S. companies will have to comply with it in their overseas operations anyway, and to be consistent they will eventually apply the same standards everywhere, including the U.S.”

The Kyoto Protocol Climate Change Treaty went into effect on February 16, 2005, ratified by 55 nations representing 55 percent of all global GHG emissions. U.S. facilities can choose to undertake a voluntary program to address all or part of the Kyoto requirements. The federal Voluntary Reporting of Greenhouse Gases Program (VRGGP) helps to ensure that current emissions reductions won’t be forgotten under any future mandatory actions.

BLR’s environmental editors recommend these tips for a voluntary GHG program:
· Perform a baseline GHG emissions inventory.
· Explore solutions to reduce GHG emissions now.
· Register as certifiably reducing GHG emissions through the California Climate Action Registry or other state or local body.

China Emerge as Significant Supplier of Vermiculite

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18058) has announced the addition of The Economics of Vermiculite to their offering.

(PRWEB) June 2, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18058) has announced the addition of The Economics of Vermiculite to their offering.

After a sharp dip in US output after the 1990 closure of Montana's Libby mine, world vermiculite production has recovered over the past decade and stood at around 590,000t in 2002. In the mid 1990s production averaged 500,000tpy and much of the increase since then has occurred in China, which accounted for at least 90,000t in 2002. In the same year South Africa accounted for around 38% of world production. The main South African producer is Palabora Mining Company, which operates a mine in Northern Province. This mine has been operating since 1946, with Palabora taking control in 1962. Production reached a peak of 224,000t in 2002 but declined to 173,000t in 2003. US production declined from an estimated 150,000t in 2000 to 100,000t in 2003. This decline is almost certainly related to the concerns in the market place over allegations that asbestos was contained in some vermiculite-based products.

Other leading producing companies include Samrec in Zimbabwe, UniãoBrasiliera de Mineração, JSC Kovdorslyuda in Russia and Australian Vermiculite Industries in Australia. A number of new or reopened vermiculite operations are scheduled to come onstream in 2004, adding a potential 150,000tpy to global vermiculite capacity. If there is little or negative growth in demand as forecast, it seems unlikely that all these developments will come onstream at their predicted capacities. Alternatively, if they have low production costs, they may succeed at the expense of higher-cost producers elsewhere.

Demand Grows for Rare Eatrhs & Yttrium at 7% Over 3 Years

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18098) has announced the addition of The Economics of Rare Eatrhs & Yttrium to their offering.

(PRWEB) June 2, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18098) has announced the addition of The Economics of Rare Eatrhs & Yttrium to their offering.

The outstanding feature of the rare earths industry over the past three years has been the collapse in prices. In 2000 the average selling price for rare earths was US$10.50/kg REO, but by 2003 this had fallen to US$5.50/kg. The major cause of this dramatic fall in prices was the significant increase in demand and prevailing high prices in 1999/2000, which fuelled a large increase in production capacity. This in turn lead to over-production at the very time that demand from the telecommunication and electronic industries contracted.

Global demand is forecast to rise at a rate of 4-7%py over the next 3 to 4 years, however it is unlikely that prices will return to the levels prevalent at the beginning of the decade within this time. In 2002/03 continuing over-supply of rare earths and very low prices meant that many of the rare earths processors were failing to recover direct operating costs. Consequently, in early 2004 the State Government of China initiated a restructuring of the industry, to reduce the number of processing companies, and ultimately develop a self-sustaining industry with high value products and high profi t margins. Rare earths mining capacity in China exceeds 250,000tpy REO, which represents more than 80% of the global mining capacity. Reserves of rare earths throughout the world are sufficient to meet anticipated demand for at least 200 years.

Tantalum Prices Remain at Pre-Boom Levels?

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18132) has announced the addition of The Economics of Tantalum to their offering.

Dublin (PRWEB) June 2, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18132) has announced the addition of The Economics of Tantalum to their offering.

Over the past few decades, the tantalum market has been characterised by long periods of stability, punctuated by sharp price rises created by strong global demand and fears, usually unfounded of impending raw material shortages. Stability was reinforced when Cabot and Stark, the world's largest tantalum processors, entered into long-term, fixed price supply contracts with Australia's Sons of Gwalia, the leading mine producer. Those arrangements helped keep prices in the open market fairly constant, even when global demand for tantalum entered into a period of strong growth during the second half of the 1990s, in response to rapid expansion of the demand for consumer electronics, and mobile telephones in particular.

Booming sales of mobile telephones between 1998 and 2000 resulted in supplies of electronics components, including tantalum capacitors, becoming tight and prices increased. Demand for tantalum raw materials also increased, rising to levels that could not be met by the traditional suppliers. Spot tantalum prices rose to US$40-50/lb by mid-2000 and by December had reached US$240/lb. In early 2001, a number of capacitor manufacturers, made nervous by spiralling tantalum prices and the threat of raw material shortages entered into long-term, fixed-price contracts with processors. However, instead of continuing to grow, the mobile telephone market and aerospace industry turned downward in 2001. Tantalum prices started to fall sharply. By the end of the year prices were back to pre-boom levels, and in early 2005, spot prices remain at below US$40/lb.

High Tech Hits the Plant Floor as Chemical Methods, Inc. Uses the Web to Remotely Control Tunnel Washers

In a competitive global marketplace, manufacturers are challenging their suppliers to decrease costs but not make any changes that can adversely impact product quality. Chemical Methods, Inc. uses a unique program that marries electronic probes and Internet monitoring to respond to this challenge. The program is called Embedded Sensors (sm) and MyWasher.net© and it is designed to increase product quality, decrease operating costs and increase profits.

(PRWEB) June 1, 2021 -- Chemical Methods’ laboratories custom develop specialty chemicals that are used to carefully clean and treat metal surfaces prior to a protective coating such as painting or galvanizing.

“Our customers make products out of metal. They compete in tough markets including steel, aluminum, automotive, appliance, railroad, aerospace, oil services, and metal furniture. They came to us looking for a way to use less cleaning and pretreating chemicals but not decrease product quality. We had to find a way to help customers work smarter – keep processes in tighter control – so they don’t use too much or too little chemical” said Dan Richards President & CEO of Chemical Methods.

Using too much chemical wastes money. Using too little chemical causes poor quality, rework and expensive warranty claims. The Chemical Methods’ Embedded Sensors and MyWasher.net program enables remote monitoring of critical process parameters by customer staff and by Chemical Methods' personnel.

“From any PC linked to the Internet, we can monitor conductivity, temperature and pH at each stage of a washer line. If parameters move outside of control ranges automatic alarms are sent out by e-mail, cell phone text message, or pager. This is a 24 x 7 monitoring program and corrective actions are taken immediately. The MyWasher Internet customer portal becomes a quality control tool plus a cost reduction tool. Over time we can reduce costs by 15% to 30% compared to a line that does not use this monitoring technology” said Tom Fabek VP Sales & Marketing.

“Chemical Methods has done a fantastic job with their Internet Customer Portal. It is easy to access and provides valuable information. MyWasher.net is a great tool that helps us better manage our Proceco Washers” according to J.C. Kelly, Director of Maintenance – CSX.

About Chemical Methods, Inc.

Pressure on Producers as Supply-Demand Balance Tightens

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18048) has announced the addition of The Economics of Rhenium to their offering.

(PRWEB) June 1, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18048) has announced the addition of The Economics of Rhenium to their offering.

The number of rhenium producers has fallen significantly over the past decade, to the point where just three companies now supply almost all of current world demand. Rhenium's supply-demand balance is currently very tight: world demand of some 41tpy is met by primary production of 35.5-37.0tpy, with the balance derived largely from recycled material. Demand is unlikely to fall in the coming years, and will most probably continue to rise. This will increase the pressure on suppliers to make more rhenium available. Molymet will almost certainly wish to retain its position as the world's principal producer and will probably increase its output at its Chilean and Mexican operations. It is also possible that the company will install rhenium recovery capability at its recently acquired Sadaci molybdenum roaster in Belgium.

Rhenium production at Zhezkazganredmet in Kazakhstan is thought to be at less than full capacity, so increased supplies from that source are also possible. If copper prices recover sufficiently, Phelps Dodge may be encouraged to raise output at Sierrita and other copper-molybdenum mines where rhenium is present, thereby potentially returning several tonnes per year of rhenium to the market.

'The Economics of Rhenium' analyses the key trends, issues and developments in the market. It provides a clear insight into all areas of the industry and an authoritative analysis of the prospects for the future.

Countries covered include:
Armenia, Austria, Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Iran, Japan, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Mongolia, Netherlands, Papua, New Guinea, Peru, Poland, Russia, Sweden, UK, USA, Uzbekistan

Report Contents:
1. Summary
2. Occurrence and world reserves of rhenium
3. World production and recovery of rhenium
4. Current and potential rhenium-producing countries and companies

Demand for Titanium Metal is Forecast to Recover Steadily

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18096) has announced the addition of The Economics of Titanium Metal to their offering.

Dublin (PRWEB) June 1, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18096) has announced the addition of The Economics of Titanium Metal to their offering.

Since the attacks on the World Trade Center in September 2001, the titanium industry has been characterised by steep decline in demand for its use in aerospace applications. Demand for titanium sponge in the USA fell by 34% in 2002. However, in the absence of further catastrophic events impacting directly on commercial airlines, demand for titanium metal is forecast to recover steadily, with the western world's passenger airline fleet of over 100 seats expected to increase from 10,800 aircraft in 2004 to over 30,000 in 2020.

Use of titanium worldwide is more or less divided equally between aerospace and non-aerospace applications, with the emphasis on aerospace being slightly greater in the USA. Industrial applications account for nearly 70% of the non-aerospace sector, with the high cost of titanium recovery and processing discouraging its greater use in automotive, consumer, medical and military applications. Supply of titanium sponge is confined to nine producers in six countries. Russia, Kazakhstan and Japan now account for an estimated 75% of world production, which was around 73kt in 2003. In contrast the USA accounts for 54% of the world ingot capacity of a nominal 161kt. This is divided primarily between the three major US producers, Timet, Allegheny Technologies and RMI Titanium.

'The Economics of Titanium' analyses the key trends, issues and developments in the market. It provides a clear insight into all areas of the industry and an authoritative analysis of the prospects for the future.

Research and Markets: Molybdenum Output Dependent on Recovery in Copper Market

Dublin, (PRWEB) June 1, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18281) has announced the addition of The Economics of Molybdenum to their offering

2002 saw an increase in molybdenum prices due to a decline in the copper market in 2001. This forced many operators of Cu-Mo mines to reduce copper output, causing a concomitant fall in world molybdenum output in 2002. The consequent tightening of molybdenum supply was exacerbated by anti-dumping duties imposed by the EU on Chinese ferromolybdenum, as well as by changes in demand patterns caused by consolidation in the steel industry. As a result, molybdenum prices increased sharply in the middle of 2002. Although this price spike was short-lived, prices were sustained at around US$4-4.5/lb (oxide) through to 2003, when temporary closure of a large number of mines in China helped to push prices slowly above the US$6.0/lb level.

The trend in molybdenum production since 1995 suggests that supply over the next 2-3 years could remain below 140,000t, so that the potential supply deficit could help to maintain the relatively high prices of 2002-2003. However, molybdenum output in the near future largely depends on the timing of recovery in the copper market. Some copper producers are planning to increase output in 2004 and if these go ahead, the levels of co-produced molybdenum will automatically rise, thereby potentially relieving the tight supply experienced in 2002-2003. Continued recovery in the copper sector will increase molybdenum output further and may ultimately cause the return of downward pressure on molybdenum prices, as was more typical of the market prior to the cutbacks in copper production in 2001-2002.
