Scrap Lead Selling Prices Rise
According to The Financial Times, prices for lead rose in August after China put in place a ban on imports from neighbour North Korea, as part of international sanctions agreed to limit the country's weapon programme.
As a result, the price for lead on the London Metal Exchange rose by 1.4 percent to £1,400 a tonne.
Imports of lead into China from North Korea made up 10 per cent of the country’s overall lead imports in the first six months of this year.
