Kayrros Mine Supply Tracker
is an important indicator of future supply, but mining companies only provide aggregated data on a quarterly basis, and with a significant time lag. In fact, supply is often the least transparent part of the market, particularly in jurisdictions where official statistics are lacking.
Make informed decisions based on data rather than surveys and hearsay
Gain visibility on opencast mines around the world
Identify periods of over or undersupply ahead of the market
Kayrros Supply Tracker uses SAR technology to identify changes in a designated area between two measurements. Changes may signal a pit that became deeper, a stockpile that grew taller, or a truck that drove away. A change index is calculated across the active area of the mine to provide a time series of mining activity.
