At the 2015 PDAC International Convention, Trade Show & Investors Exchange, Resource Investing News spoke with John Kaiser of Kaiser Research about his outlook for scandium and the broader metals markets.
Kaiser is bullish on scandium, and spoke about what’s driving his predictions for the metal. While he admitted that there’s currently only about 10 tonnes of supply of the obscure metal, he pointed out that there’s more than just 10 tonnes of demand.
“There’s an enormous latent demand for scandium if it ever became available on a primary, scalable basis,” he said, adding that hundreds and thousands of patents have been filed regarding scandium. With big deposits being found in Australia, the story could become more prominent in the near future, with a market driven by juniors rather than major mining companies.
He also answered some questions raised by readers in response to an article on his recent presentation at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference in January, and spoke about Scandium International Mining (TSX:SCY), which he owns shares in and sees as the most advanced player in the space.
