Keetac iron ore mine

Report summary

Keetac is a surface mine located in Minnesota's Mesabi Iron Range near Keewatin, Minnesota.  In May 2015, US Steel announced it would be idling the Keetac operations due to weak iron ore and steel market conditions. The mine is expected to re-start in March 2017 to supply pellets to third-party consumers. US Steel has considered an expansion at Keetac which would cost roughly US$800 million and increase production capacity by approximately 3.3 Mtpa.  While the company has completed the necessary permitting, we believe its development to be highly unlikely.
