Analyzing Base Metals in Canada

Analyzing Base Metals in Canada

The Canadian base metals industry experienced a slowdown in 2013. Copper stepped into the spotlight with a 48% year-on-year increase. The market is composed of a fairly small number of large companies, but they tend to operate in several regions and have some diversification in their product portfolio; thereby minimizing competition.

The majority of Canada’s metal mines are on the Canadian Shield. They are found in an arc stretching southeast from the gold mines of Yellowknife, through Flin Flon, Red Lake, Timmins, Sudbury, Rouyn-Noranda, Val d’Or and Chibougamau, to the iron mines of Labrador City. The remaining areas of metal mining are found within the mountains along the western and southeastern coasts. The majority of the steel and aluminum production facilities are found in Quebec's Saguenay region, south along the St. Lawrence River and along the shores of Lake Ontario and Lake Erie. This area provides plants with access to energy and industrial infrastructure, the St. Lawrence Seaway and land-transport connections to the eastern United States. The primary raw material in steel making is iron. Iron-ore production is centered in Labrador City, Newfoundland and Labrador.
