China-based CITIC has advised of another massive write-down in the value of its Sino Iron magnetite project in Western Australia. The latest write-down is expected to around $US1bn ($A1.27bn), similar to other write-downs in recent years. Sino Iron has been plagued by a legal dispute, which prompted CITIC to warn in 2017 that it could put production on hold. The closure of Sino Iron could affect Fortescue Metal Group’s decision on whether to proceed with its Iron Bridge magnetite project.
