Fortescue Metals Group’s cash reserves rose from $US1.8bn to $US2.3bn in the September quarter. Iron ore shipments totalled 44 million tonnes, with "C1" costs falling marginally to $US12.15 per tonne. Fortescue has reduced its price realisation guidance for the second time in 2017-18, and now expects to receive between 70 and 75 per cent of the benchmark index price for its lower-grade ore. CEO Nev Power suggested earlier in 2017 that the price discount would not be sustained, but he now says it is difficult to predict when it will narrow.
