    Lead shortages, seasonally strong demand suggest possible price revival

    Global trade disputes and political tensions have sent prices of battery metal lead to 14-month lows but tight supplies, shortages and seasonally strong demand for the coming northern winter suggest a possible change of tack. The possibility of protracted trade tensions between the United States and China, and worries about economic growth pushed lead (CMPB3) on the London Metal Exchange down to $2,074 a tonne on Aug. 6, its lowest since June last year. "Mine supply is barely growing, we are forecasting a 0.4 percent increase to 5.4 million tonnes this year," said Wood Mackenzie lead analyst Farid Ahmed.

    Goa to push central government to restart mining

    Goa on Friday passed a resolution asking the state's chief minister to push the central government to amend laws to restart mining across the state, a state lawmaker said, months after the country's top court quashed mining permits. The resolution seeks to amend laws in Goa so that existing miners can continue to extract ore for about 20 years. Mining of low-quality iron ore came to a halt in March over allegations of illegal mining.

    Smelting constraints make zinc's price plunge look overdone

    Expectations for a rise in zinc concentrate supplies in coming years have driven down the metal price to one-year lows, but smelting capacity constraints suggest the sell-off is premature. Prices of the metal, which is used to galvanise steel, have underperformed other LME metals this year. Projects that will deliver more zinc concentrate to market include Vedanta's (VED.L) Gamsberg mine in South Africa and three Australian projects, namely Dugald River owned by MMG , another mine run by New Century Resources (NCZ.AX) and Glencore's (GLEN.L) Lady Loretta mine.

    Cairn says Indian tax office sold $216 million of Vedanta shares

    Cairn said it still holds about 3 percent in Vedanta Ltd after the sale, while warning that it was possible that the Indian tax department might make further sales. The write down will result in an impairment charge in the company's half year results in September equal to the value of the total shares notified as having been sold by the tax department at that time, Cairn said. Indian metals and mining group Vedanta Ltd last year completed its buyout of oil and gas explorer Cairn India Ltd, giving Cairn a shareholding of about 5 percent in Vedanta plus an interest in preference shares.
