Report summary

The weighted average cost of North China delivered iron ore is US$40.1/dmt (62% Fe) US$4.3/dmt less than our Q3 2015 estimate. Cost deflation continues across all countries with weak currencies falling oil prices increasing productivity and tax relief the main contributors to cost drop. Since late 2014 iron ore prices have tracked the 75th percentile of the cost curve. For 2016 we estimate the 75th percentile cost will be US$47/dmt indicating the iron ore price is likely to fluctuate around this level if the trend of the past year continues.
