North American Palladium's Lac des Iles Mine is Canada's only primary producer of platinum group metals and is among the largest open pit, bulk mineable palladium reserves in the world. The Mine also generates substantial revenue from platinum and by-product metals including nickel, gold and copper. NAP is focused on expanding its production profile through joint ventures in Canada and the Arctic Platinum Project in Finland. Palladium's catalytic qualities are expected to play an increasing role in the automotive industry in response to growing concern for global environmental solutions, in fuel cell technology for alternative energy sources and an emerging jewellery market, while continuing to have widespread application in the dental, electronics and, chemical sectors.
