SHANGHAI, Nov. 25 (SMM) -- Today, mainstream offers for refined manganese were RMB 13,600-13,700/mt.
Operating rates at manganese producers in Guangxi province remained relatively low at 40%, as most producers were waiting for environmental protection inspections on December 15th; 10 idled producers in Xiushan region have resumed production current; operating rates at manganese producer in Hunan and Guizhou provinces remained 70%. Meanwhile, most manganese producers produced based on long-term contracts, leaving supply tightness in spot market.
