SHANGHAI, Aug. 13 (SMM) –  

Manganese Ore Market: 
Traders at the Port of Tianjin raised offers of Gabonese manganese ore by RMB 0.2-0.3/mtu on Wednesday. The availability of such ore was low at the port, which allowed traders to ask for higher prices. Downstream producers, however, refrained from buying at higher prices. 

Silicomanganese Alloy Market:
Silicomanganese alloy supply is growing. Demand from steel mills, however, has been weak. As a result, bearishness is growing in silicomanganese alloy markets, prompting some producers to begin destocking.
