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 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.
Like a puppy chasing its tail, some new investors often chase 'the next big thing', even if that means buying 'story...

Steel represents a significant amount of materials trading done on the stock market. Some companies perform better than others—for a number of reasons.
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.
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.
