On the supply side, in the early stage, due to the problem of low zinc prices and superimposed processing fees, some small mines reduced and stopped production, and some medium-sized mines only produced and did not sell. However, in April, the processing fee was reduced to an average price of 5600 yuan / ton, and the low price was 5300 yuan / ton. It is also expected that the willingness to ship the mine will be strengthened. in addition, the inventory of Lianyungang zinc concentrate rose to a high level of 200000 tons on Friday, and the shortage of raw materials in the smelter is expected to be alleviated.
