After a review and consultation with the market, which ended on January 27, from Friday February 5 Metal Bulletin will price the tellurium market on a weekly basis, rather than twice-weekly as it did previously.

The frequency will be changing to once a week on Fridays.

The new specification is therefore:

Description: Tellurium, China domestic*
Price: Yuan per kg, in-warehouse China
Te: 99.99% min, no other elements specified
Form: Ingots, sticks or powder
Packaging: original producer's packing
Lot size: 500kg
Payment terms: Cash, other payment terms normalised
Publication: Between 2pm and 3pm UK time on Fridays
