Simandou (Rio Tinto) iron ore mine


Simandou (Rio Tinto) iron ore mine

Report summary

The Simandou deposit is one of the largest undeveloped high grade deposits in the world. If brought online it would account for just under 10% of the total seaborne export production and be one of the lowest operating cost mines supplying the seaborne market. We classify the project as Probable and there are significant challenges to developing it, most notably financing the expected US$16 billion of required capex. For the purposes of this analysis we have assumed production commences in 2025 and ramps up over 6 years to 100Mtpa. This analysis covers blocks 3 and 4 of the Simandou deposit.
