SHANGHAI, Aug. 15 (SMM) – Import losses for zinc concentrate widened to 395-943 yuan per tonne last week since the SMM/LME zinc price ratio slid to 8.23, SMM reports.
TCs of domestic zinc concentrate (50%) traded at 3,900-4,400 yuan per tonne (zinc content, price to factory) this past week, almost flat at the previous week’s level. TCs for imported zinc concentrate (50%) traded around $50-60 per dry metric tonne, SMM data show.
Domestic zinc concentrate TCs will hold steady in the near term given ore tightness and high profit at zinc smelters, SMM predicts.
