SMM8, 13 Aug-Nyrstar, which is listed in Belgium, said it had stopped production at the Port Pirie smelter in Australia, raising concerns about a shortage of lead supplies.

Maintenance work will cause the furnace to shut down for weeks and the company is considering a number of options, including restarting the sintering plant to maintain production, the company said in a statement.

This is the second shutdown of the lead smelter this year, after shutting down in June and July, when the 12 million-tonne lead market cut supplies by 30, 000 tons.

For the specific impact of the lead market, SMM will be updated in time later.
