The economics of byproduct metals (in two parts). 2. Lead, zinc, uranium, rare-earth, iron, aluminum, titanium, and lithium systems).
This report analyzes the byproducts systems of lead, zinc, uranium, rare earths, iron, aluminum, titanium, and lithium. Specific byproduct metals covered are cadmium, germanium, indium, and thallium from the zinc system; antimony and bismuth from the lead system; vanadium, radium, and scandium from the uranium system; rare- earth oxides from the rare-earth system and cobalt, gallium, hafnium, and rubidium from other systems. The report discusses various metallurgical systems, marginal and incremental production costs of byproduct subsystems, industry structure and organization, and historical data on price, consumption, and supply.
