Bloomberg.com reports that World zinc mining companies could expect to  pay 15 to 20 percent less to smelters for processing raw material into refined metal next year, due to a drop in fees.

The story is quoted as saying:

“Assuming a basis zinc price of $2,000 a metric ton, we could see a base treatment charge of about $200-$210 a dry metric ton,” the bank said in a report today. This would be a reduction of about $40-$50 a ton from this year’s benchmark of $253 a ton on a basis price of $2,000 a ton, the bank said
