Global iron ore producers are responding to growing demand for higher-grade iron ore in China by shifting production away from low-grade ore. They include Fortescue Metals Group, Vale and Cleveland-Cliffs. Fortescue recently announced plans to develop the Eliwana mine in Western Australia, with its output to be blended with lower-grade ore from the company’s other mines in the Pilbara. BHP also intends to blend ore from its proposed South Flank project with lower-grade ore.
