Close

Zinc has been the big outperforming base metal this year. Rally can be attributed to depleting supply on account of mine closures and demand growth from China.


Mined metal production may increase 21 percent year-on-year and 44 percent sequentially.


Sequentially higher volumes from Rampura Agucha open cast mine was in accordance with mine plan while YoY higher may be because of higher volumes from both underground and open cast mine of Rampura Agucha mine.

Key issues to watch for would be delay in recovery of volumes at Rampura Agucha, decline in global zinc prices and restart of any of the shutdown global mines.
