So in this conversation, we spend some time discussing zinc...its fundamental uses and its intriguing set of supply/demand dynamics. But we also take some time to discuss copper, gold and silver as all three are by-products of zinc mining.
I think you'll find this to be a very interesting interview as it covers some topics that we don't regularly discuss here at TFMR.
