China’s zinc output declined in January as the impact of maintenance and suspension at zinc smelters during the CNY holiday outweighed ramped-up operations at large-scale producers. About 534,500 tonnes of refined zinc was produced in China in January, down 0.47% on the month but up 23.1% on the year. Capacity covered in the SMM survey amounted to 6.09 million tonnes on an annualised basis. Last month, zinc smelters including Hunnan Taifeng, Hunan Lantian Chemical, Honghe Hezhong Zinc conducted maintenance and small and medium-scale smelters in Hunan were away for holidays for 10-15 days. Zhuzhou Smelter and Henan Yuguang, meanwhile, raised output to operate in full capacity in January.

Separately, China’s refined zinc smelters produced 79,400 tonne of zinc alloy in January, down 1.62% from a month earlier. Production of hot-dip galvanised alloy accounted for 66,800 tonnes.
