The article looks at the state of the exotic metals sector as the shares of Precious Metals Australia (PMA) increase as of October 3, 2005. Chinese demand for the metal, which is used to harden steel, is the reason for the dramatic increase in share price. According to PMA executive Roderick Smith, there is also the issue of a supply shortage because there has been a lack of investment in new mines.
