INTPARTThe INTPART Metal Production Project aims at strengthening ties and growing networks internationally through joint research and education projects. The three-year project is hosted by the Centre for Research-based Innovation (SFI) and funded by the Norwegian Research Council (NRC) and NTNU. The participating institutions are NTNU and SINTEF in Norway, and MINTEK and the University of North-West (NWU) in South Africa. The two focus areas of the project are fundamental reaction mechanisms for reduction processes and the use of carbon materials in metal production.

The project resulted from the two SAIMM Schools on Manganese Ferroalloy Production hosted in 2012 and 2016.

The chairperson's report for both schools can be accessed to gain insight.

The 2017 output was boosted by the September to December 2017 production from the newly acquired Perkoa mine, in Burkina Faso, and the Rosh Pinah mine, in Namibia, which it acquired from Glencore on August 31. Production for the se assets from April 1 to August 31, was treated as part of the working capital adjustments captured in the purchase price calculation.
  • As stockpiles fall, which metals are really in tight supply?
    Stocks of industrial metals in London Metal Exchange (LME) warehouses fell more than 40 percent last year and further declines are expected in 2018, which should in theory signal tighter supplies and fuel a blistering price rally. But rising inventories of metals at smaller rival exchanges suggest the real supply picture is more mixed.
