Palladium surged above $1,500 an ounce to a record, extending a powerful rally that’s been driven by an acute shortage of supply as car manufacturers scramble to get hold of the material to meet stringent emissions controls. Spot palladium surged as much as 1.7 percent to $1,505.46 an ounce, and traded at $1,494.50 as of 1:54 p.m. in New York. The advance will benefit top suppliers in Russia and South Africa.
JOHANNESBURG/LONDON, Feb 18 (Reuters) - South African utility Eskom imposed the worst power cuts in several years on homes and businesses last week, conjuring up memories of the 2008 crisis when the grid nearly collapsed and cost the mining industry billions in lost output. Although Eskom - which supplies around 90 percent of power in Africa's most industrialised economy - paused the blackouts on Friday for the first time in five days, it warned that its creaking infrastructure could buckle at any time. It is not clear how much the industry, which consumes about 15 percent of Eskom’s annual output, lost in production but the crisis sent prices of both gold and platinum to record levels and pummelled the rand.
Anglo American Platinum Ltd. declared its biggest dividend since 2008 as the company reported full-year earnings that nearly doubled, thanks to a weaker rand and surging prices for sister metal palladium. While rivals such as Impala Platinum Holdings Ltd. and Lonmin Plc are also benefiting from higher prices for palladium and rhodium, which they dig up alongside platinum, Amplats is in a particularly strong position. Amplats said it expects the three major platinum-group metals -- platinum, palladium and rhodium -- will again be in a combined deficit in 2019, although platinum itself will see a “modest” surplus.
Four out of five people see no positive impact at all and 8 percent said mines brought “sickness, dispossessions and damages,” ActionAid said in a report released Tuesday. South Africa’s economy during apartheid was built on mining and the exploitation of cheap black labor, and the sector, the world’s fifth-biggest, still accounts for about half the nation’s exports. Mining communities often complain about people being pushed off their land, pollution and the violence and sexually transmitted diseases associated with the influx of migrant workers.

Palladium, once considered an unattractive byproduct of platinum mining until the rise of catalytic converters in the 1970s, is hitting new records. You might think this spike will spark an immediate reversal and slump, as is often the case with commodity prices. Palladium and platinum are part of an intertwined group of rare metals(1) that occur in only three regions on the planet: southern Africa, Siberia, and, in smaller amounts, the U.S. and Canada.
The arrest of Huawei CFO follows U.S. intelligence officials warnings that Chinese tech companies may be using their technology to spy on Americans.
