Mar. 7 -- PT Timah’s tin production was “affected” in the first quarter because bad weather disrupted shipping, Reuters said, citing an interview with Timah Chief Executive Officer Wachid Usman.

Most of Timah’s ships couldn’t operate, “affecting our first quarter production,” Wachid said, according to Reuters. Output is expected to pick up in the second and third quarters and then drop in the fourth again due to weather, Reuters said. Timah is Indonesia’s largest tin producer.
