Copper Smelting companies to be hit with reduction in treatment and refining charges

Copper Smelters in India are likely to bear a brunt from the fall in global copper prices. The treatment and refining charges (TC/RC) for 2016 will get locked at much lower rates than last year. According to Metal Bulletin, China's largest copper smelter Jiangxi Copper and Chilean copper miner Antofagasta have agreed on 2016 TC/RCs of USD 97.35 a tonne compared to USD 107 last year. Even if smelters and miners are still negotiating, it is very clear the tone is bearish in the market. Indian smelters like Hindalco, Sterlite are already bearing the brunt with aluminium market going through tough period. The lone public sector utility is Hindustan Copper which has its own captive mines.
