SHANGHAI, Jan. 11 (SMM) -- In China’s manganese ore market, inquiries from downstream alloy producers were still brisk, but transactions were still limited. Offers at ports advanced, but downstream producers’ price acceptance was low. According to SMM sources, traders reported limited profits for recently-made transactions.

In south market, it is believed that purchasers will be forced to accept high prices. In north market, upward momentum of manganese ore was strong. According to SMM sources, offers for high-grade manganese ore from Australia advanced by RMB 1/mt.
