Zinc Stocks: 5 Biggest Canadian Companies in 2023

Base metal zinc continued to perform strongly in 2022. Prices hit a 15 year high in April, although they cooled later in the year, ultimately ending the period down US$604 per metric ton (MT).

Many of the base metals were hit with weakened demand in 2022 after China enacted its zero-COVID policy, and zinc was no exception. However, zinc supply also declined last year, with Russia's invasion of Ukraine further exacerbating Europe's energy crisis and causing some major zinc smelters and plants to suspend operations.

For investors interested in zinc, the Investing News Network has gathered the biggest TSX- and TSXV-listed zinc stocks by market cap. The list below includes zinc miners and explorers, as well as companies pursuing zinc as a secondary metal. Data was gathered on January 4, 2023, using TradingView’s stock screener, and only companies with market caps greater than C$50 million at that time were considered. Read on to learn more about their operations and plans.
