Zircon prices are on the up

Mineral sands lack the sex appeal of the base and precious metals sectors of the ASX. That’s mainly due to the opaqueness around the pricing of the material which generally speaking, either gets gobbled up by the titanium pigment market as rutile, or in ceramics as zircon.

Given the recent turmoil in the broader commodities space, it seems that the mineral sands sector could provide a safe harbour.
