Fortescue Metals Group has advised that its iron ore shipments for the December 2018 quarter totalled 42.5 million tonnes, an increase of five per cent year-on-year. The result included its first shipments of the higher-grade West Pilbara Fines. Meanwhile, Fortescue expects its earnings to be boosted by renewed demand for lower-grade iron ore among Chinese steel mills. The pure-play miner also says it is too soon to determine the likely impact of the latest tailings dam collapse in Brazil on the iron ore price.
