The annual report of Citic indicates that the Chinese group’s Sino Iron magnetite project in the Pilbara was profitable for the first time in 2019. The $16bn project benefited from the strong price of iron ore during the year, with its revenue rising by 15 per cent. Mining and processing magnetite is more expensive and uses more energy than traditional iron ore projects, but the fact that Sino Iron has made a profit will give encouragement to other proponents of magnetite, including Fortescue Metals Group.
