|Brazil Ferroniobium February Exports 6,030 Tons|
|= Up by 25% from January to mark the highest in the past 6 months =|
Attached hereto is a table showing Brazil's exports of ferroniobium in the single month of February 2012 as well as the aggregates of the first two months of 2012.|
Exports in February were 6,030 tons (weight of the material), substantially up by 25.5% from the preceding month, to reach a 6,000-ton level, the highest in the past 6 months.
Breakdown by destination was, <> Netherlands: 2,250 tons (up by 61.3% from January), <> China: 1,570 tons (up 2.2 times), <> U.S.A.: 690 tons (down by 23.2%), <> Singapore: 644 tons (down by 11.5%), <> Japan: 570 tons (down by 29.3%), <> Canada: 34 tons (down by 67.0%).
