Dear SMM Cobalt and Lithium Industry customers:

In the past two years, with the development of new energy industry, more and more spodumene concentrate is imported into China. The upstream and downstream enterprises of the industrial chain also pay more and more attention to the trading price of spodumene concentrate. As a result, SMM decided to add the quotation of spodumene concentrate in order to provide a reference, representative, fair and scientific price reference for the raw material pricing of the industry.

After a period of market research, SMM will add a new price point for spodumene concentrate on July 8.
