Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    We revised our preliminary margin calculations for Golden Dragon 
and Nacobre to use the home market sales data they reported in their 
post-preliminary submissions to the Department. We made no other 
changes to the calculation of Golden Dragon's and Nacobre's weighted-
average dumping margins in these final results.

Period of Review

    The period of review is May 1, 2011, through October 31, 2011, for 
Golden Dragon and November 22, 2010, through October 31, 2011, for 
Nacobre.

Final Results of the Review

    As a result of our review, we determine that sales of the subject 
merchandise have not been made at prices below normal value for the 
period May 1, 2011, and October 31, 2011, for Golden Dragon and 
November 22, 2010, through October 31, 2011, for Nacobre.

Disclosure

    We will disclose the calculations performed within five days of the 
date of publication of this notice to parties in this proceeding in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rate

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), the Department has 
determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise 
and deposits of estimated duties, where applicable, in accordance with 
the final results of this review. The Department intends to issue 
appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this administrative review.
    Pursuant to the Final Modification for Reviews,\6\ because the 
respondents' weighted-average dumping margins are zero, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties.\7\

    \7\ Id. at 8102.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003.\8\ This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by Golden Dragon and Nacobre for 
which these companies did not know that the merchandise was destined 
for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate 
for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.

dumping margins established in the final results of this administrative 
review (i.e., zero percent); (2) for merchandise exported by

completed prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most 
recently completed segment; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered 
in this review, a prior review, or the original investigation but the
