The price of iron ore for immediate delivery to China’s port of Tianjin has fallen by 1.8 per cent to its lowest level in a decade, at $US43.40 per tonne. The previous low of $US44.10 per tonne was recorded in July 2015. The sharp decline in the iron ore price has weighed heavily on Australian producers, with BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, Fortescue Metals Group, BC Iron and Mount Gibson Iron recording double-digit share price falls in the last month.
