SHANGHAI, Apr 4 (SMM) - The operating rates of Chinese zinc smelters are likely to dip further in April, following a 2.14-percentage-point month-on-month drop in March, an SMM survey showed.
This is because more smelters are expected to carry out maintenance this month although some will resume normal operations.
The operating rate in March stood at 72.31%, according to the SMM survey. Zinc output was down over 10,000 mt from February due to maintenance work.
