The iron ore price fell sharply on 20 March after a Brazilian court ruled that Vale can resume production at its Brucutu mine, whose annual capacity is 30 million tonnes. The ruling also weighed on the share price of Fortescue Metals Group, which has been a major beneficiary of reduced output in Brazil in the wake of the Brumadinho tailings dam disaster in January. Fortescue COO Greg Lilleyman has told a conference in Perth that Chinese demand for the company’s lower-grade iron ore remains strong, and stockpiles of its ore at Chinese ports have been falling.
