    Supply or Demand: What Will Weigh on Iron Ore Prices More?

    Tighter environmental controls are pushing Chinese mills to go for higher-quality imported ore as opposed to domestic ore. Seaborne iron ore exporters including Vale (VALE), BHP Billiton (BHP), and Rio Tinto (RIO) generate more than two-thirds of the total seaborne iron ore supply.

    Anglo American Plc, BHP Group Plc and AngloGold Ashanti Ltd. have contributed most to this year’s 28% advance for the sector. “We have seen a recovery in commodity prices, and that is positive for the share prices of mining companies, and the rand has also been weaker, which is helpful as the companies sell in dollars,” said Izak van Niekerk, a money manager at Mergence Investment Managers in Cape Town.

    BHP says 5 dams pose ‘extreme risk’ in case of collapse

    BHP, the world’s largest miner, said it had five tailings dams that would be at “extreme risk” of damaging the local environment and harming nearby residents if they failed. The Anglo-Australian group unveiled the results of a risk assessment of its dams on Friday in response to rising pressure from institutional investors. The pressure has intensified on all miners since two fatal accidents in Brazil that have left hundreds dead, one of which was a joint venture run by BHP.

    REFILE-UPDATE 3-Major miners reveal tailings dam data, action plans following disasters

    Global miners BHP Group, Anglo American Plc and Glencore Plc revealed details on tailings dams, months after ethical investors sought the information following a second deadly dam disaster in Brazil. BHP, which operates 67 tailings facilities, said on Friday it has set up a tailings taskforce to further improve its focus on internal dam management and boost safety. The world's biggest miner added that a review undertaken to assess the management of tailings facilities following the 2015 Samarco disaster, which killed 19 people, had identified no immediate concerns regarding dam integrity.

    Guinea iron ore prospectors set sights on ArcelorMittal rail

    LONDON/CONAKRY, June 5 (Reuters) - The race to mine Guinea's iron ore has started although the focus is not on its giant Simandou deposits but on smaller finds whose output could be transported via Liberia if ArcelorMittal shares its railway, banking and industry sources said. Guinea's aspirations to develop Simandou, the world's largest known untapped iron ore deposit, have foundered because of the cost of infrastructure and protracted legal disputes.

    Canada's Nutrien Ltd , the world's biggest producer of potash fertilizer, said on Tuesday that it was evaluating whether to expand its annual production capacity by 5 million tonnes after 2023, around the time that metals miner BHP Billiton is considering a move into potash.

    BHP to keep Nickel West, Rio looks to Jadar lithium for battery boom

    Global miner BHP will hold on to the Australian nickel operations it previously put up for sale, while Rio Tinto is working on copper and lithium projects as the mining industry bets on demand for electric vehicle (EV) batteries. The biggest mining companies say they are well positioned to provide the metals needed for the shift to EV technology, although they acknowledge the political risks and environmental issues in some of the countries where the best supplies are found. Using more nickel also cuts costs by reducing the use of expensive cobalt, a mainstay of current EV batteries.

    The world's biggest diversified miners have yet to see their share prices reflect their role as providers of the minerals needed for a shift to a low-carbon economy. Mining companies provide minerals such as cobalt used in electric vehicle batteries and copper for increased electrification, and the sector's balance sheets are in rude health. Reminders of the dangers include a disaster in Brazil at a Vale tailings dam in January that killed an estimated 300 people, and a U.S. corruption investigation into Glencore, announced in April.

BHP's Escondida copper mine - the world's largest - also saw production fall 14.8 percent to 274,800 tonnes in the first quarter.

    Anglo-Australian mining giant BHP is facing a landmark, $5 billion (3.8 billion pounds) damages claim in England for being "woefully negligent" in the run-up to a 2015 dam failure that led to Brazil's worst environmental disaster, a lawsuit alleges.

BHP spokesman Neil Burrows said the miner intended to defend itself against the proceedings, brought in the north western English city of Liverpool.
