Production will trail consumption by 481,000 ounces this year and deficits will persist through 2020, leading to the “tightest” market in two decades, Citigroup Inc. analysts including Max Layton said in a note in late September.

Jubilee Metals Group CEO Leon Coetzer after reading the article told DirectorsTalk, “Its an interesting article that supports Jubilee’s Hernic Project where we produce palladium as part of our Precious Group Metals profolio.
