Mineral Resources has advised that it stockpiled about 500,000 tonnes of iron ore fines during the December 2017 quarter, in response to the ongoing price discount for lower-grade ore. In contrast to Fortescue Metals Group, Mineral Resources expects the price discount to be sustained for some time. Mineral Resources also sought to counter the price discount by changing its iron ore blend in a bid to deliver supply buyers with a higher-quality product. Fortescue also intends to increase the average grade of its iron ore.
