What We Do

Cobalt Supply and Demand Outlooks

  • Supply forecasts based on key parameters, including development stage, project type, location, owner, mining-specific country risk, and capital requirement
  • Proprietary methodology for mill-head grade and reserve-grade erosion, life of mine, and supply scenarios
  • Demand outlook based on McKinsey’s internal demand model

Individual Mine Models

  • Excel outputs that feature supply and cost breakdowns, including by parameters such as material moved, run of mine, strip ratio, recoveries, and grade — for copper—cobalt mines
  • Flexing of macroeconomic input commodity price, exchange rate, oil price, wage, and power price
