Platinum – Through November Platinum increased in cost approaching $1000/Toz. This is largely down to Anglo American Platinum closing its Phase B converter plant owing to ongoing water leaks. The Phase A plant is also down for maintenance meaning that production would be curtailed for the rest of the year.

Iridium - Iridium tends to have a much more stable price as it is used only in industrial applications. There price raised slightly in November to $1670/Toz
