    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.

    Rio Tinto reveals government contracts

    Rio Tinto has published the contracts and licensing agreements that govern its biggest projects, as the Anglo Australia group seeks to improve transparency and counter perceptions that miners profit at the expense of host nations. While some of the Anglo Australian company’s contracts are already publicly available — including the investment for the giant Oyu Tolgoi copper project in Mongolia — others are more difficult to find. To solve that problem, Rio, a founding member of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative, has created an online disclosure table with links to its development contracts, weighty legal documents that can be difficult for non-specialists to read.

    FTSE 100 chokes as tobacco firms fall on sales report, drugmakers dip

    The FTSE 100 was 0.1% lower, while the mid-cap FTSE 250 rose 0.4%. British American Tobacco and Imperial Brands were among the biggest drags on the main index after data from Nielsen showed cigarette industry volumes deteriorated in the four weeks to May 18. The session's trading came against the backdrop of continued uncertainty over China's trade dispute with the United States, after U.S. President Donald Trump said Washington was not ready to make a deal with Beijing but that he expected one in the future.

    Asian stock-pickers bet on income growth over yield

    Investors in Asian stocks are picking companies and sectors that promise better long-term returns, overlooking the broader uncertainties around profits stemming from global trade and economic growth risks this year. For some long-term investors in Asian equity markets, the evidence of a deeper change in the region's culture away from hoarding cash and towards rewarding investors with higher dividends is also a reason to stay invested. Analysts also downgraded their dividend forecasts for a larger proportion of Asia Pacific companies relative to numbers in North America and Europe, the data showed.

    Top Miner BHP Sees an End to the Era of Coal

    There’s the prospect that the material will be “phased out, potentially sooner than expected,” Chief Financial Officer Peter Beaven said in an investor presentation on Wednesday. BHP follows its biggest competitors Rio Tinto Group and Glencore Plc in questioning the future role of coal used for power generation, as investors press for more action to tackle climate change and tighten restrictions on holding companies that produce the fuel. Rio sold its final coal mines last year, while Glencore said in March it would seek to limit production.

    The Global Diamond Glut Worsens

    Sales by the Anglo American Plc unit dropped 25% from a year ago to $415 million, and were down 29% from an offering last month. It’s often a quieter time of the year because the industry has already restocked after the key holiday period, but total sales so far in 2019 are still much weaker than in previous years. In December, some of Rio Tinto Group’s customers refused to buy cheaper stones, while De Beers was forced to cut prices toward the end of last year and offer concessions to buyers.

    KARMOEY, Norway/LONDON (Reuters) - In the cavernous chamber of Norsk Hydro's aluminium smelter on the Norwegian island of Karmoey, the magnetic forces are so strong they make heavy iron wrenches float out of the hands of workers. The company is piloting a technology that tames the effects of that powerful magnetic field, which is a consequence of the electrolysis process to make aluminium and leaches away energy. Norsk Hydro told Reuters it was using mathematical models to mitigate the effect of the magnetism and other energy waste.

    Rio Tinto shipping more aluminium to Europe as U.S. demand slows

    Rio Tinto has begun shipping more aluminium to markets like Europe to offset slowing demand from the United States partly caused by the trade dispute between China and the U.S., Chief Executive Jean-Sébastien Jacques said on Thursday. Jacques said that demand for Rio Tinto's products had not been impacted by the dispute, which is threatening to escalate this week. An agreement could avert a sharp increase in U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods that President Donald Trump has threatened to impose on Friday.
