The largest tungsten deposit in China is known as the king of war metal

Tungsten as "critical" mineral resource in the world, The Times has been favored by the governments, the British geological prospecting institute has classified tungsten supply of the materials needed to maintain the UK economy and lifestyle risk listing, China also to limit mining, so as to see its value. The discovery of zhuxi tungsten mine not only enriches the tungsten mineral resources, but also makes China play an important role in the future international competition.

First found in 1783, tungsten is the highest melting metal on earth, with a melting point of more than 3,400 degrees Celsius, which is widely used in the automotive industry and defense. Low of 2016, the state issued the national mineral resources planning (2016-2020) ", will be a national strategic tungsten mineral directory, as the macroeconomic regulation and control of mineral resources and the focus of the supervision and management of the object, and in the allocation of resources, financial investment, provide differentiated management mining land, etc. In the plan, it is clearly stated that the protection develops minerals such as tungsten, tin and antimony. We will consolidate the base of tungsten deposits, such as chenzhou and chenzhou in jiangxi province, and stabilize the scale of mining, and rationally utilize the resources of tungsten, low-grade tungsten and tungsten tailings. There are five tungsten mining state planning zones and three tungsten tin deposits that are of great value to the national economy.

Tungsten is used in defense to make all kinds of alloy steels, tungsten is the gun barrel, the engine USES high temperature alloy, rocket nozzles, armour, electromagnetic gun and other necessary elements. The demand and prices of tungsten have risen sharply during the wars in history, and tungsten is known as the "king of war metal".

According to the latest statistics from the USGS, the world has detected 3.3 million tons of tungsten reserves, mainly in the Alps and the Pacific rim. China is at the top of the list, accounting for 57 percent of the world's total reserves. Although China has a monopoly of resources, there is no monopoly profits, mainly because of China's tungsten over-exploited, exports too much, and given priority to with low added value of primary products exports, the profit is low. In recent years, China has imposed a quota cap on tungsten mining, limiting its annual output to about 913, 000 tons. In 2017, a total of 17 provinces (regions) have been granted production targets, including 3,8450 tons in jiangxi and 2,3600 tons in hunan province and half of the production indicators.

The world's largest tungsten mine Zhuxi tungsten-copper mine is located in the town of shouan town and leping city in fuliang county, jiangxi province. It is located in the north east of jiangxi province. In January 2016, zhu xi mining area (30-78 line) was the world's largest tungsten mine with 2.86 million tons of tungsten trioxide resources. Two months later, the copper dock in the float saddle county, jiangxi province, leping cypress dock copper polymetallic census report through expert review, Zhu Xi new tungsten trioxide tungsten resources 578500 tons, the size of its resource increased from 2.86 million tons to 2.86 million tons, once again break the world record for the tungsten reserves.

Volkswagen and the world's leading cobalt producers are in talks about the future of global metal cobalt demand that will reach 1610,000 tonnes

Earlier this month, Volkswagen approved a $34 billion spending plan aimed at accelerating the development of electric vehicles and trying to become a leader in the global electric car market. "We have had constructive negotiations with some well-known suppliers and the negotiations will continue," a vw spokesman said. In addition to the product supply and production costs, the negotiations also discussed the expansion, sustainability and transparency of future capacity. The talks took place in Wolfsburg, Germany, for two days, beginning Thursday and ending Friday.

The talks aimed at and Glencore (Glencore), Huayou Cobalt industry (Huayou Cobalt), commodity traders unity (Traxys) and freeport-mcmoran copper gold companies in the United States (U.S. miner freeport-mcmoran) and Eurasian resources group (ERG) discussed Cobalt supply agreement. Eurasia resource group confirmed that its representatives participated in the meeting; Glencore declined to comment; The company, the company, and freeport McMoran, have not commented.

Cobalt metals are priced at around $30 a pound, the highest price since October 2008, according to people familiar with the matter. In 2015, the price was less than $10 a pound. The price rose sharply last year as the global government and automakers began pushing for electric vehicles to cut emissions from fuel locomotives. "There may be other suppliers, but they didn't attend last week's meeting," said another source. It's not possible for suppliers to have a fixed price, and they want to have all the supply agreements reached by the end of the year, and that's not going to happen."

Cobalt producers and vw are expected to resume talks next year, but there is no clear plan yet, according to sources. According to S&P Global Market Intelligence, cobalt production will increase from 122,000 tonnes last year to 219,000 tonnes in 2022, with most of the increase coming from Congo.

At the company level, glencore dominates the market, producing more than 28,000 tonnes of cobalt last year. George Heppel, an adviser to CRU international limited, predicted earlier this year that the global demand for cobalt metal would be close to 136,000 tonnes by 2021; By 2025, the demand will increase to 1610,000 tonnes. Demand for cobalt metals worldwide is about 102,000 tonnes this year. The proportion of battery demand for electric vehicles and mobile devices will reach 46 percent in 2021, up from 40 percent this year, Heppel said.
