Palladium consumption is strong globally and is in a state of undersupply. The main consumer regions are North America, Europe, and China. China has identified a total of 36 platinum-group metal mining areas in 10 provinces (regions), with Gansu Province having the richest reserves of platinum-group metals with a reserve of 144 tons, accounting for 44.4% of the total national reserves. The grade of China's platinum-group resources is only 10% to 20% of that of foreign deposits. Copper-nickel sulfide coexistence is the main form of ore deposits. The average ore content of the two largest platinum-group metal mining areas in China, Jinchang in Gansu and Jinbaoshan in Yunnan, is 0.4 g/t and 0.5 g/t, respectively.
In 2011, the amount of platinum group metals extracted from ores was only 2.5 tons, while the demand for palladium in China in 2011 was 57.5 tons, so relying on platinum group mineral resources is far from meeting the demand.文章源自平泽贵金属回收公司 www.51gjs.comPINGZE Precious Metals Recycling-https://en.51gjs.com/19157.html 文章源自平泽贵金属回收公司 www.51gjs.comPINGZE Precious Metals Recycling-https://en.51gjs.com/19157.html
