SHANGHAI, Jan. 25 (SMM) -- Inquiries from downstream alloy producers were sparse in China’s manganese ore market. According to market players, supply of manganese ore was tight, and offers were mixed. According to SMM sources, prices for manganese ore from Australia, Gabon and Brazil have been rising steadily. Arrivals of manganese ore will reduce sharply during the Chinese New Year holiday. If downstream alloy producers do not halt production after holiday, manganese ore prices will advance further after holiday.
