SHANGHAI Three people have been arrested in China for allegedly smuggling antimony, according to a Dec. 21 report in Guangzhou Daily.
The suspects allegedly smuggled some 115.7 tonnes of antimony concentrates between August and September, local police found. It was bought in resource-rich regions like Hunan, Guangxi or Guangdong and sent to Hong Kong before going to buyers in the United States, Japan, South Korea and Belgium, the local report said.
There has been a strict clampdown on smuggling in the port of Guangxi province since early this year, a major exporter told AMM sister publication Metal Bulletin.
