    Why Iron Ore Stocks Could Struggle to Hold Ground

    As we saw in the previous part of this series, iron ore prices have stood their ground despite growing headwinds for China (FXI). As we discussed in the previous part, one of the factors driving iron ore’s resilience is the stocking up by mills ahead of winter production curbs. As restocking completes and winter cuts kick in, the demand for iron ore from China could take a hit.

    What’s Driving Iron Ore Prices despite Weakness Everywhere Else?

    Chinese authorities imposed curbs on steel production last year ahead of winter months to reduce pollution. Steel mills are therefore in restocking mode to advance steel production before the curbs kick in. China’s iron ore import data for September also underscored this fact.

    Exxon’s $2 Billion Canadian Move Shows Confidence When Others Flee

    Imperial Chief Executive Officer Rich Kruger puts the rationale for the C$2.6 billion ($2 billion) Aspen project in northern Alberta down to building when others aren’t to save money. The decision comes in stark contrast to moves by Royal Dutch Shell Plc. and ConocoPhillips to sell oil-sands assets, and by locals like Cenovus Energy Inc. and Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. that are curtailing production to weather rock-bottom prices. Imperial is looking at ways to process more heavy crude at its refineries and could place some of the new production in Enbridge Inc.’s Line 3, the one export pipeline that’s under construction and scheduled to be completed late next year.

    BHP to meet iron ore commitments despite train derailment: CEO

    Global miner BHP Billiton will meet its iron ore commitments to customers despite a supply disruption after it had to derail a runaway ore train in Western Australia, Chief Executive Andrew Mackenzie said on Thursday. The miner suspended its rail operations after the incident on Monday that wrecked track and left a locomotive and wagons upturned nearly 120 km (75 miles) south of Australia's iron ore export hub of Port Hedland. Asked whether BHP would invoke force majeure, Mackenzie told media after the company's annual general meeting in South Australia that he did not expect the miner would let down any of its customers.

    BHP expects derailed train to impact its Australian iron ore exports

    Mining giant BHP Billiton expects some interruption to its Australian iron ore exports after a nearly 3-km-long train loaded with the commodity was forcibly derailed this week after running away en route to a key shipping hub. One of BHP's customers in China, a steel producer, has, however, not yet received any notice from the miner. "We have a long-term contract with BHP and we haven't received a notification so far," said an official at the mill in southern China who declined to be named as he was not authorised to speak to media.

    [$$] Train Stopping: BHP Derails Runaway Locomotive From 800 Miles Away

    Monday’s journey was meant to be a regular rail movement from BHP’s iron-ore mines in Western Australia’s Pilbara region, where temperatures can top 100 degrees Fahrenheit in summer and vast distances separate communities. BHP is taking a more patient approach to the technology, as it worries about congestion on the more than 800-mile rail network that it operates in the Pilbara.

BHP’s iron ore mine operations are unaffected and it’s working with authorities to investigate the cause of the incident, a company spokeswoman said Tuesday. Stockpiles at Port Hedland will be used over the coming days to maintain port operations, BHP said in a statement.

    BHP to return $10.4 billion in buyback, special dividend bonanza

    Investors cheered the massive return and the split between a $5.2 billion off-market buyback and a $5.2 billion special dividend, sending BHP's Australian shares up as much as 6.2 percent. BHP had promised to return all of the net proceeds from the $10.8 billion sale of its U.S. shale business to shareholders when the deal was announced in July. "It's good that 100 percent is going back to shareholders," said Stephen Butel, an analyst with Platypus Asset Management, which owns shares in BHP.

    [$$] BHP to Return $10.4 Billion to Shareholders

    Ltd. said it would hand $10.4 billion to shareholders via a stock buyback and special dividend, as the miner continues to face a campaign against its strategy and structure by activist investor Elliott Management Corp. Analysts said the stock gains reflected an earlier payout to shareholders than many in the market had expected. Like many of its competitors in the global resources industry, BHP had used cash generated during earlier booms in commodity prices to buy assets or invest in expanding its mining operations from Australia to North America.
