Correction to daily cobalt hydroxide inferred price

Fastmarkets has corrected its daily cobalt hydroxide inferred price, which was published incorrectly during January 4-6 because of a technical issue

The daily cobalt hydroxide inferred price was incorrectly published as $2,985.95 per lb on January 4, $3,003.75 per lb on January 5 and $3,003.75 per lb on January 6. This has been corrected to $29.86 per lb on January 4, $30.04 per lb on January 5 and $30.04 per lb on January 6.

This was caused by a technical error during the calculation process.

Fastmarkets’ price book and database have both been updated to reflect these changes.

The affected price is MB-CO-0023 Cobalt hydroxide, min 30% Co, inferred, China, $ per lb.
