PRICING NOTICE: Correction to manganese ore indices

Fastmarkets has corrected its manganese ore indices, which were published incorrectly on Friday September 28 due to a calculation error.

The 44% manganese ore index, cif Tianjin, should have been published at $7.14 per dmtu. It was originally published at $7.29 per dmtu.

The 37% manganese ore index, fob Port Elizabeth, should have been published at $6.18 per dmtu. It was originally published at $6.16 per dmtu.

The 37% manganese ore index, cif Tianjin, should have been published at $6.86 per dmtu. It was originally published at $6.85 per dmtu.

The index is a tonnage-weighted calculation where actual spot trades have the greatest influence on the final price. Data provided to Fastmarkets MB is normalized to a base specification using in-house developed coefficients. The calculation error occurred due to the incorrect update to normalization coefficients on this occasion.

Fastmarket’s price book and database have been updated to reflect this change.
