monazite sales

There's been a tremendous interest in monazite lately. Been doing some research and have found that no one actually buys this stuff! No wonder we have a shortage.
Does anyone have a hardcore, concrete, I got's da money in my hand, buyer??

Re: monazite sales

baub,

How much do you have? This type of commodity is sold by the Metric Tonne...(i.e. Millions of metric tonnes)

Can you supply a consistent product over say, 5 years? Buyers want and expect no variation in the product. If the monazite is being refined for REE or Radioactive elements, the refining can get tricky when there is any change in the feed.

What is your shipping point? (FOB Where?) Shipping costs and logistics from port to port can make the transportation costs excessive to the point of a not for profit operation.

Can you ship on a long term contract? Buyers are most comfortable if they can set a price and build a business model around that price. Problem for the seller is when costs of mining and milling increase during the interim.

These are the questions buyers ask BEFORE they even get to price!

When I look at websites like www.metalsplace.com , I see requirements like; Will you ship on Letter Of Credit (LOC) to Nigeria? Everyone wants you to ship before they pay. Although, some buyers will inspect lots before they ship and guarantee payment.

:smile:

Re: monazite sales

My thoughts are to find buyers/ brokers in the US that will purchase small lots, say a ton or two, and peddle it to the end user.
When I look at some of the prices for high value monazite, it makes much more to collect it than gold. Much of the talk is about reprocessing tails for the goodies.
