SNL has increased my team’s capabilities, while freeing us from tedious data entry.”
    Kjetil Lind Andersen, Senior Associate, SpareBank 1 Markets

    "I find SNL Metals Economics Group services extremely useful—and I should say indispensable. [It] allows me to see which mines are expanding or developing new operations—opportunities for Outotec’s concentrate filtration process. The service is intuitive to use and I can get the information I need quickly and easily. I like the depth of information and the historical record of the mine development. I also appreciate the ability to download data to a spreadsheet for analysis or to produce detailed PDF reports for individual mines or groups of mines."
    Ian Townsend, Manager - Filter Business (Flotation Concentrates), Outotec
