Australia iron ore supply summary


Australia iron ore supply summary

Report summary

Australia is the largest supplier of iron ore into the seaborne export market. Due to its large reserves, a robust iron ore industry has evolved that is dominated by three major producers; BHP Billiton, FMG and Rio Tinto. Australia's mining costs are among the lowest worldwide due to a combination of large scale operations that afford economies of scale, high grade material that requires little to no beneficiation, and owner-operated infrastructure. We estimate average Australian free-on-board (FOB) costs unadjusted for grade or moisture at US$19.6/tonne for 2016.
