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 be one of the lowest operating cost mines supplying the seaborne market and would account for just under 10% of the total seaborne export production. In March 2018, Rio Tinto announced that it had written back the projects Ore Reserves to Mineral Resources due to uncertainties in timing of development and potential variations to project scope under future project ownership. For modelling purposes, we have retained our production numbers but do not include the project in our base case production outlook.
