Delayed publication of China tungsten prices

The publication of Fastmarkets’ three China tungsten price assessments for Wednesday March 1 were delayed because of reporting team error.

The affected indices are:

MB-W-0003 – Tungsten APT 88.5% WO3 min, fob main ports China, was assessed at $330-340 per metric tonne unit (mtu) WO3

MB-FEU-0003 – Ferro-tungsten export, min 75% fob China, was assessed at $40.00-43.00 per kg W

MB-W-0002 – Tungsten concentrate 65% WO3, in-whs China, was assessed at 119,000-120,000 yuan per tonne

The Fastmarkets price book and database have both since been updated.
