Aluminum Insider reported that aluminium smelters and alumina refineries have thus far been spared the ravages of Typhoon Mangkhut. Sources who spoke to Platts over the weekend confirmed only minor inconveniences to operations in the area. They told “Maybe deliveries on the roads have been slightly affected, but nothing has impacted production or prices so far. It’s just raining now. We’ve not heard any other aluminum producer in the region affected much either.”

Another unnamed source from Aluminum Corp of China (Chalco) said “Transport has been affected, but we’re not certain if any production has been impacted yet. If production is affected, that will definitely impact prices.”

Sunday saw Typhoon Mangkhut make landfall in the southern reaches of the People’s Republic of China. Local weather reports indicate continued heavy rainfall for the region early this week.
