As of 17th February, mainstream magnesium prices were being quoted at RMB 21,100~21,200/t ex-works by cash with taxes in Fugu Shaanxi, while mainstream transactions prices were RMB 21,000~21,100/t, down by RMB 700/t from a week ago, and down by RMB 1,000/t from the highest point after the Chinese New Year holiday. Prices in other major producing regions followed suit.
