This week we’re talking zinc! Lesley’s Geology Corner digs into the three major types of zinc deposits, namely: Mississippi Valley, sedimentary exhalative deposits (SedEx deposits), and carbonate replacement. We discuss some of the major zinc producing regions in Canada, and globally, as well as what each mineralization type can mean for explorers and miners. Meanwhile, Matt digs into some base metal fundamentals and takes a look at China’s impact on ferrous metals. We talk about Glencore‘s (LON: GLEN) latent zinc supply, iron ore and metallurgical coal. And let’s not forget lead!
Bonus: We outline which base metals producers have exposure to zinc.
