"Global Iron Ore Cost Curve" is now available at Fast Market Research

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Thu Jun 30 2016

This presentation and accompanying Excel data provide an iron ore cost curve for 70 mines contributing to over 90% of the seaborne iron ore market, with breakdown of costs into mining, processing, admin, freight and royalties.

Specific datasets include:

* Global Mine Level Cost Costs
* Global Company Equity Production Costs
* Country level Production Costs
* Rio Tinto Cost Curve
* Vale Cost Curve
* BHP Billiton Curve

Report Highlights

* The cost analysis indicates the dominance of the three largest iron ore producers: Rio Tinto, Vale and BHP Billiton. These three producers not only account for the largest share of world production but also have the lowest-cost operations.
* Low strip ratios will ensure most operations have low mining costs per tonne. Indeed strip ratios are often the determinant for whether a iron ore deposit is economically feasible.
* BHP Billiton's Yandi is the lowest cost operation, with an estimated FOB cost of US$17.65/t in 2015. This was followed by the Mesa operations run by Rio Tinto. These operations are all in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. As Hematite operations, they produce predominately lumps and fines, both of which are direct shipping ores (DSO) which lowers their processing costs.
