Report summary

This year's unusually lengthy negotiations for annual contract treatment charge terms were concluded during the IZA Conference in Stockholm. We understand that treatment charge terms for the largest individual annual frame contracts in Europe and Asia were agreed in the last week of April. The 2018 terms represent a historically low value share (TC expressed as a percentage of the paid zinc value) of 11.5% against a zinc price of $2800/t, 11.4% against a zinc price of $3200/t and 9.7% against our price forecast of $3330/t.
