SHANGHAI, Jun. 17 (SMM) -- Overseas cobalt prices were stable after the Dragon Boat Festival, and transactions of domestic cobalt products were sluggish, with stable prices reported in the market.

Current mainstream traded prices were RMB 340,000/mt for cobalt from Jinchuan Group. Mainstream offers were RMB 73,000/mt cobalt chloride, RMB 61,000/mt for cobalt sulfate, RMB 238,000/mt for tricobalt tetroxide and RMB 245,000/mt for cobalt lithium oxide.
