Offers of manganese ore were firm and prices of certain specification in short supply continued to grow.

SHANGHAI, Oct. 30 (SMM) -- Offers of manganese ore were firm and prices of certain specification in short supply continued to grow. Mainstream traded prices of Australian granule (Mn 48%) were around RMB 43/mut, while mainstream traded prices of Gabon lump (Mn 44-45%) were around RMB 39/mtu. According to SMM survey result, traders were mixed towards market outlook. Small and medium traders were optimistic, so they hold back goods and increased purchases of long-term contract manganese ore.

In north ports, manganese ore gradually arrived at ports. According to SMM sources, most of the newly-arrived manganese ore has already ordered by producers and traders. In south ports, imported manganese ore will arrive at ports in middle November, but supply of spot manganese ore will also be limited. SiMn alloy prices slightly increased, booting manganese ore market. Therefore, most manganese ore traders would like to move goods at higher prices amid bullish sentiment.
