SHANGHAI China has kept export quotas unchanged for some minor metals for the coming year, while it reduced the quota for tin.
The Ministry of Commerce has granted a tin export quota of 17,000 tonnes for 2013, down nearly 6 percent from 2012, according to the agency.
However, it didnt give a reason for the decrease.
The ministry allocated quotas of 59,400 tonnes for antimony and its products, 25,000 tonnes for molybdenum, and 231 tonnes for indium for next year, all unchanged from 2012.
