Fortescue Metals Group CEO Nev Power has revealed that the pure-play iron ore miner is exploring for other minerals in Australia and South America, including gold, copper and lithium. He says Fortescue may further diversify its operations by investing in energy infrastructure projects. Meanwhile, Power expects Chinese demand for iron ore to remain strong, despite pending production cutbacks by some Chinese steel mills. He says demand may rise in regions of China that will not be affected by the production cuts during the winter months.
