PRICING NOTICE: Discontinuation of one zircon grade, launch of another

Metal Bulletin Group has discontinued the price for one grade of zircon and launched another.

After a consultation period, Industrial Minerals has today suspended the following grade of zircon, effective April 18, 2018:

Zircon premium grade min 66.5% ZrO2 bulk FOB Australia US $ per tonne

Industrial Minerals has suspended this grade after assessing that FOB terms are no longer representative of global market contracts.

Since Europe represents a large market in terms of zircon consumption outside of China, Industrial Minerals launched the following price assessment on April 18, 2018:
 
Zircon, premium grade, min 66.5% ZrO2, CIF Spain, $/tonne

To consistently provide the market with the most relevant data, Industrial Minerals will continue to assess prices for the following grades:

Zircon, premium grade, min 66.5% ZrO2, bulk, CIF China, $/tonne
Zircon, standard grade, min 65.5% ZrO2, CIF China, $/tonne

If you have any comments on the discontinuation or launch of these prices please contact Cameron Perks by email at: pricing@indmin.com. Please add the subject heading: ‘FAO: Cameron Perks, re: Zircon’.
