Things to know about the contracts
Palladium is the other major metal of the platinum group. It is mined with platinum, and resembles it in many respects, yet there are important differences between the two metals.
Palladium is also produced as a by-product of nickel mining. Russia supplies about 2/3 of production, South Africa about ¼ and North American less than 10%.
Automotive catalysts are the largest consuming sector, accounting for 2/3 of demand. Electronic equipment, dental alloys and jewelry manufacturing also account for palladium use.
