Description

Canadian antimony mining has ceased due to the low price of antimony brought about by the large volume of Chinese exports. Antimony is produced in the New Brunswick province of Canada and production in 2003 was estimated at 88 tonnes.

Antimony is recovered in Canada from primary concentrates and from recycled automotive batteries at two primary lead smelters that produce antimony-lead alloys. These alloys are used for lead-acid battery production. Canadian antimony mines remained closed, primarily due to low antimony prices. In addition, there are two lead smelters that recycle antimonial lead from spent lead-acid batteries and other sources.
