Inbound shipments of lead concentrate were high in December 2015, up 11.06% on a yearly basis.

SHANGHAI, Feb. 4 (SMM) – Inbound shipments of lead concentrate were high in December 2015, up 11.06% on a yearly basis.  

According to China Customs, China imported 189,000 tonne of lead concentrate in December 2015, up 11.06% YoY. 

“High imports during the last month of December were due mainly to stock-piling for winter production and price advantages of imported ore,” SMM lead analyst explains.  

The imports in December, however, were down 23.27% MoM, and this was mainly because of high import base in November.  

Imports of lead concentrate totaled 1.899 million mt in China from January to December 2015, up 4.83% YoY, according to China Customs.
