CRU’s Lead and Zinc Concentrates Monitor, published on Thursday 12 January, reports that there have been further reports of curtailments at zinc smelters in China. CRU Principal Consultant Giles Lloyd writes “official zinc smelter production figures are yet to support the reported smelter cuts but terms for this year’s annual contracts are already expected to move in favour of sellers as negotiations start”.
