    Rio Tinto iron ore shipments climb on rail upgrade, on track for annual target

    Global miner Rio Tinto on Tuesday said it had lifted its third quarter iron ore shipments by 6 percent after modernizing its haulage railway in Australia's outback, but cut its production target for copper due to delays at a major mine in Chile. Rio Tinto, which competes with Vale SA and BHP Billiton Ltd in the seaborne-traded iron ore market, maintained its target to ship 330 million tonnes of the steelmaking ingredient in 2017. The strong quarter comes after a sluggish first half when bad weather and rail track maintenance crimped iron ore production.
