China's refined tin output rose on a month-on-month basis in September as a large-scale smelter in Yunnan increased production after maintenance in September.

SHANGHAI, Oct 13 (SMM) – China's refined tin output rose on a month-on-month basis in September as a large-scale smelter in Yunnan increased production after maintenance in September.

 

SMM data showed that China produced 14,342 mt of refined tin in September, up 0.93% from August. Some tin plants in Yunnan and Jiangxi have carried out equipment maintenance, reducing some production. Mining operations and transportation were affected in Myanmar as the country experienced continued rainfall and pandemic over the recent months. Domestic tin supply was still tight and lower treatment charges (TCs) for tin ore have narrowed profits of smelters.

 

The tight supply of tin ore is unlikely to recover in October, while some enterprises will resume production from maintenance.

 

China's refined tin output is expected to come in at 14,500 mt in October.
