In China’s domestic spot markets, quotation for Chihong Zn & Ge were at RMB 16,100/mt earlier with inquiries rarely seen due to the high prices, but dropped to RMB 16,050/mt later, with discounts against the most active SHFE lead contract price between RMB 200-250/mt. However, traded prices were actually between RMB 16,000-16,040/mt. Other brands such as Hanjiang and Yubei were quoted at RMB 16,020-16,050/mt and only limited deals were made. Quotations for lead from Gejiu region were at RMB 15,950-16,000/mt. Since lead prices kept rising, smelters were more actively selling goods, while inquiries from downstream buyers increased but few purchases were made at high prices, leaving transactions modest.
