Data from the Pilbara Ports Authority shows that iron ore shipments via Port Hedland rose by four per cent year-on-year in May, to 47.8 million tonnes. Australian iron ore producers benefited from a rally in the price of the steel input during May, amid a downturn in stockpiles at Chinese ports as steel mills resumed production. They will also benefit from a court-ordered closure of Vale’s Itabira mining hub due to a coronavirus outbreak. Vale has maintained its revised full-year production guidance of 310-330 million tonnes.
