Before the outbreak of the ternary lithium battery , the amount of cobalt has been relatively low, and the price of cobalt has been sluggish. Many companies have already gone out. As the national new energy vehicle subsidy new policy puts forward the energy density of power batteries, power battery companies will shift their focus from lithium iron phosphate to ternary batteries, which directly led to a surge in demand for cobalt. However, the production capacity of cobalt could not keep up with it in a timely manner. Under the imbalance of supply and demand, the price of cobalt began to skyrocket. Judging from the earnings reports of China's cobalt giants, their performance in the first quarter of 2018 is very eye-catching.
Luoyang Molybdenum Industry: Building the world's leading mining group
First, look at the first quarter performance report of Luoyang Molybdenum in 2018. According to the report, Luoyang Molybdenum achieved operating income of 7.432 billion yuan in the first quarter, up 28.5% year-on-year; realized net profit attributable to owners of the parent company of 1.55 billion yuan, an increase of 159.54% compared with 597 million in the same period of last year; After the profit and loss, the net profit attributable to the owner of the parent company was 1.558 billion yuan, an increase of 170.94% over the same period last year.
The profit in the first quarter of this year created the best performance since the listing of Luoyang Molybdenum. This is mainly due to the development strategy of Luoyang Molybdenum Industry in the past few years to â€œsee the world to build the world's leading mining groupâ€.
The leap-forward development of Luoyang Molybdenum has benefited from the development strategy of â€œbuilding the world's leading mining groupâ€ in the past few years.
In the first quarter of this year, Luoyang Molybdenum's China business achieved a production of 4,589 tons and 2,635 tons of molybdenum and tungsten, respectively; Congo's copper and cobalt production was 39,464 tons and 4,843 tons respectively, and the quarterly cobalt production reached a record high.

In the first quarter, Pengxin Resources' revenue growth was mainly attributable to the increase in sales of cathode copper products and the acceleration of trading business. Pengxin Resources cathode copper is produced in Congo (Golden). Due to the impact of local employees and customs at the end of the year, there will be a short-term accumulation at the end of December, which will provide an increase in the sales of cathode copper in the next quarter. space. At the same time benefiting from the international copper price remained high, the revenue of Pengxin resources increased significantly in the first quarter.
In addition, Pengxin Resources accelerated the upstream and downstream layout of the cobalt industry chain and fostered new growth points. Since the first quarter, Pengxin Resources has further consolidated its cobalt resource reserves through copper and cobalt mine leasing and Vincent Mining underwriting agreements. The Congo Gold and Cobalt Ore Trading Center, which was established in the early stage, has also entered operational status, successfully achieving the perfect connection between reserves and production capacity. In the first quarter, the cobalt hydroxide production line (Phase I) project was partially completed, the soil leveling project was nearing completion, and the cobalt ore platform and raw material warehouse were under construction. It is expected to be fully operational in the fourth quarter. At this point, the layout of the upper and lower reaches of the Pengxin resource cobalt industry chain is close to all. With the rapid development of the new energy industry, Pengxin resources can be developed in a leap-forward manner.
It is worth mentioning that in 2018, in addition to the layout of mining production, new materials, international trade and financial business, Pengxin Resources will continue to grow steadily with the synergy of the four major sectors, and also carry out new energy layout construction and business development, strengthening Cooperative resonance between the business segments. Follow-up, along with the multi-distribution capacity integration and the integration of capital operation benefits, Pengxin resources will enter a new stage of all-round development and high-speed growth.
