Sichuan earthquake adds to zinc market tightness

Report summary

A 7.0 magnitude earthquake which struck Sichuan province on 8 August 2017 has caused strong tremors to be felt in neighbouring provinces. Local safety administration at Longnan city in Gansu province has ordered the suspension of all mining activities until further notice. Longnan area hosts a cluster of zinc mines and contributes to more than 60% of Gansu's zinc production. Suspension of mining will reduce concentrate stocks produced, and adds to zinc market tightness.
