BHP has become the world’s lowest-cost iron ore producer, after its average unit cost of production fell to $US11.89 a tonne in the second half of 2018-19. Meanwhile, BHP expects iron ore shipments from the Pilbara to top 286 million tonnes in 2019-20. However, BHP does face some challenges; it recently advised that the iron content of its Jimblebar Fines iron ore product will fall from 61 per cent to 59.5 per cent during 2019-20, while two autonomous haulage trucks at the Jimblebar mine remain out of action following a collision in March.
