South Africa Richards Bay Coal Declines to Lowest in Three Weeks

Coal export prices at South Africa’s Richards Bay, the continent’s biggest terminal for shipping the fuel, declined to their lowest level in three weeks.

Coal for immediate delivery dropped $1.15, or 1.3 percent, in the week to Jan. 4 to $88.94 a metric ton, the lowest price since Dec. 14, according to IHS McCloskey data on Bloomberg.

The fuel is quoted on a free-on-board basis, which excludes delivery costs.
